Emerson Process Management and Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas, Inc. (MPSA) have extended their alliance for turbine retrofit projects in the Americas. The alliance brings together Emerson’s expertise designing and engineering automation and control systems for the power industry with MPSA’s extensive experience in gas and steam turbine technology and service, providing power generators with an alternative to their original controls, service and parts supplier for long-term turbine support.
Established in 2008, the alliance supports retrofits of W501F, W501B, W501D5A, W501A, W501D5 and W251 gas turbines, as well as all models of Mitsubishi and Westinghouse technology steam turbines. MPSA brings expertise on Westinghouse technology turbines since Mitsubishi was involved in the design and development of this technology through licensing and alliance agreements with Westinghouse.
Mitsubishi’s ongoing advancements in 501 series gas turbine technology have resulted in the successful design and operation of the company’s high-efficiency G-series and J-series gas turbines. Today, Mitsubishi continues to support and modernize the original Westinghouse technology platform by supplying technological advancements that are directly applicable to the Westinghouse fleet.
