Chromalloy Signs First IGT Power Generation Customer in Thailand

Posted on October 8, 2009

Chromalloy recently released that it has entered into an agreement with its first industrial gas turbine (IGT) power generation customer in Thailand for the Tiger Monitoring and Diagnostic System, which provides continuous engine monitoring and evaluation. The Chromalloy Tiger Monitoring and Diagnostic System has been installed at the District Cooling System and Power Plant Co., Ltd., at the new Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok.

“Chromalloy is pleased to build on our relationship with District Cooling System and Power Plant Co., Ltd.,” said Armand F. Lauzon, Jr., president of Chromalloy. “As a complimentary system, our Tiger Monitoring and Diagnostic System will provide a complete and comprehensive power plant control and engine monitoring system.

“Chromalloy’s Tiger Monitoring and Diagnostic System enables industrial turbine operators to reduce maintenance costs by providing 24/7 remote monitoring and early troubleshooting and detection to identify unscheduled events – thereby increasing operational time and availability,” Lauzon said. Chromalloy’s Tiger Monitoring and Diagnostic System operates to continuously evaluate the condition of the turbine engines, providing performance and maintenance calculations along with archiving and graphing data, which enables the analysis of trends and engine events in detail. The data replay features allows examination of historical events as they occurred, Lauzon said.

The system features include diagnostics, performance models, hours and starts calculations, vibration diagnostics and displays, automated reports, and e-mail notifications and alerts. All of the features are designed to provide 24/7, real-time remote monitoring capability – which reduces the time involved in providing unscheduled maintenance events. The District Cooling System and Power Plant Co., Ltd. manages the new Suvarnabhumi Airport facility’s entire power needs. The natural gas power plant in Bangkok has a maximum capacity of 50 MW.
