Greenray Control Solutions have recently successfully completed the Factory Acceptance Testing of yet another new controls system, as part of a major retrofit contract for four aero derivative Gas Turbines at a pumping station in the Middle East.
The project scope includes the provision of a new turbine control system, new pump control system, new gas fuel systems, cabling, vibration systems, temperature monitoring, replacement fire and gas detection and suppression systems, replacement field Instrumentation, and the installation, supervision and commissioning of such a system. The upgrade and retrofit also includes provision for a remote control station, half a kilometer away from the pumping station.
The Factory Acceptance Testing was completed at the new Greenray Group facility based in Lincoln, with the client in attendance. The control system is a complete upgrade from the original analogue, to a new state of the art system.
This project presented an exciting opportunity for us, as it is the latest in a number of turbine modernisations that we have undertaken in Iraq, this demonstrates our experience in the control system retrofit market and the updating of old existing equipment to the latest modern industry standards.
