Posted on January 8, 2014

Wood Group GTS has completed the maintenance service and gas turbine optimization of Jamaica Public Service Company’s (JPS) Bogue Power Plant, located in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Wood Group GTS executed a hot gas path inspection and provided the necessary parts and repairs, completing the outage event in only nine days, meeting JPS’ required maintenance schedule, the company said.

Wood Group GTS said it also provided its EcoValue compressor water wash technology, which will be installed by the customer for two GE Frame 6B gas turbines, increasing the combined-cycle plant’s efficiency.

In similar applications, the company said its customers have experienced improved power output of up to 2.1% on a 2x1 power block, resulting in additional revenue and fuel cost savings.
