Gas turbine operators continue to implement GTE's patented water wash system
ORLANDO, Florida - Gas Turbine Efficiency plc (AIM: GTE), a leader in energy and aviation products and services, is pleased to report an increase in orders from the energy industry for its compressor water wash system, as more gas turbine operators implement this solution into their operations.
Compressor water wash systems are a major product line in the GTE portfolio of patented solutions for both power generation and aviation turbines, and have experienced increased recognition, acceptance and sales.
Four major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of gas turbines had previously approved and signed agreements for further development and sales of GTE's patented technology for use on their engines. Most recently, installations have been finalized and the performance improvements have been validated and published.
"We are pleased to report increased orders in the power generation sector for our compressor wash system," said Steven Zwolinski, Chief Executive Officer at GTE. "We are now in a good position with documented performance data and user acceptance across multiple engines. Our clients now have the data that they need to invest in the technology evidenced by recent order flow."
GTE has been featured in several prominent power generation publications and conferences generating interest and additional proposals for new sales. Notably, in February 2010, GTE was featured at the 501F Gas Turbine Users Group Annual Conference in Orlando, Fl. There, Louisiana based power producer Cleco Evangeline presented a case study on GTE's compressor water wash systems as an optimal solution for operational improvements. The data presented offered an average percent power benefit of 1.18% and motivating an average increase in energy efficiency of 0.42% which translates to rapid return on investment.
