WTUI – Day 2

Monday:  The conference started in earnest today.  Opening session at 8am. 

Some items of interest from the opening remarks:

 

There are close to 900 attendees at this year’s conference; including users and vendors.  —  There are 22 countries represented from around the globe on all continents.   —  The WTUI conference started with just a few users in California 17 years ago – and, there are still a few people in the room that have been to all 17 gatherings.

 

Other comments from today’s meetings:

 

There is a new installation going on in The Hague, where two LM6000’s are being coupled to a single generator in a “twin pack” formation.  The first of it’s kind, turning the LM6000 into an equivalent 100 MW power plant.

 

There are now 5 authorized Maintenance Depots for GE’s aeroderivative gas turbines:  ANZ, AVIO, IHI, MTU, TCT. 

 

One of the service bulletins discussed during the sessions dealt with combustor nozzles, and the wear due to NOx water injection seen in many units – especially those which operate more often at part loads

 

The evening ended with a reception (including dinner, dancing and fireworks) on the USS Midway in downtown San Diego.  It was a great way to end a great day!
