HPI Awarded Contract for the Control System Upgrade of Two Ruston TB5000

HOUSTON (August 17, 2017) – HPI announced today that due to the successful implementation of the controls system upgrade at their Beazley plant in 2015, it has been selected to design, manufacture, install and commission the control system upgrade for two Ruston TB5000 compressors for Transportadora de Gas del Norte – TGN, an Argentina-based energy company at their La Carlota plant.

The project will help to modernize the controls and enables the client to increase the efficiency, reliability and availability of the compressor plant through the replacement of their current control equipment. This upgrade will also allow the client to continue the standardization process on all installations throughout their numerous plants.
