BASF-YPC Co. Ltd., a joint venture between BASF and Yangzi PetroChemical, has awarded EthosEnergy a six-year extension to a long-term service agreement (LTSA) originally signed in 2007. Under the extension, EthosEnergy will continue to provide services for three GE Frame 6B gas turbines at the BASF-YPC facility in Nanjing, China, until 2019. 

The extension is a continuation of the full scope LTSA that includes the supply of new Frame 6B capital parts, component repairs, field services, monitoring and diagnostics, and overall performance management.
