Securing Vital Hospital Power

Wood Group replaces Centaur gas turbine, secures long-term maintenance contract

Posted on September 18, 2013

Wood Group GTS has completed a power plant equipment upgrade and has been awarded a five-year term service agreement (LTSA) to maintain a Solar Taurus 60 gas turbine to be used for power generation at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, California, U.S.A.

The company said it replaced the existing Centaur 40 gas turbine with a more powerful Taurus 60 model, upgrading the control and fuel systems and other ancillary equipment. Wood Group said this will help to ensure Rady Children's has reliable, uninterrupted power.

The LTSA encompasses scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, monitoring and diagnostic services, and supply of parts, the company said.
