First Aftermarket Controls of Pratt & Whitney FT8® Gas Turbines
10 September 2012 – In turbine controls news, HPI has successfully commissioned the first implementation of its control software on a non-OEM platform for a Pratt & Whitney FT8 Twin-Pac® configuration. HPI continues to lead innovation in the controls retrofit market and provide advanced engineering solutions. HPI licensed its custom PLC software for the upgrade of the two Pratt & Whitney FT8 gas turbines at a cogeneration plant in the USA Pacific Northwest.
This HPI custom software can be implemented on a range of PLC platforms. An open architecture system offers greater flexibility in parts and site maintenance, and lower maintenance costs.
