TTS, Voith Team To Add AGT Test Stand

By CT2 Staff15 January 2019

Turbine Technology Services (TTS) and Voith joined forces to add an actuator, governor and turbomachinery (AGT) test stand at the TTS Houston, Texas, facility.

The companies said the development brings a support network of trained technicians to the Houston area, offering greater convenience for Voith’s local oil & gas clients.

TTS opened its facility in Houston in 2016 in conjunction with its sister company Reciprocating Technology Services (RTS). RTS has been working closely with Voith in a joint development effort to provide a new starting technology for large reciprocating engines that provides zero emissions and many other benefits, the company said.

“We loved the idea of bringing Voith into our shop,” said Frank Hoegler, TTS vice president. “This partnership provides us the opportunity for a closer relationship with Voith and its Houston area customers. What’s great is that TTS doesn’t compete with Voith, but we share a lot of mutual clients, so it’s a win-win situation for us and our customers.”

The AGT test stand has been well-received, said Thad Berry, sales account manager at Voith Digital Solutions Inc.

“Having a local, certified team of trained technicians means a lot to our Houston customers,” Berry said. “They want a local support network that understands the actuators and their applications with the proper equipment, tools and expertise to perform critical maintenance and emergency repairs.”

With over 35 years of experience providing technical solutions in the power generation and gas compression industry, TTS has managed hundreds of gas turbine installations and modernization projects. Founded in 1867, Voith today has more than 19 000 employees and earns US $4.7 billion in sales.
