HPI Awarded Controls Upgrade Contract for Marshall Municipal Utilities


HOUSTON (November 21, 2017) – HPI announced today that it has been awarded a contract to complete the controls upgrade on a GE Frame 5 turbine generator set, including: new liquid fuel valve, generator breaker protection, battery charger, new Motor Control Center (MCC), and auto voltage regulator. The customer is Marshall Municipal Utilities (MMU) in Marshall, Minnesota.

This project will enable the client to remove their existing obsolete control system and to buy off-the-shelf parts for their control system. The new control system is an open architecture design, which allows for easy component replacement without causing long down times.

Scheduled to begin in November, the project is estimated to be completed by March of 2018.

“The relationships that we create and maintain with our customers, along with the quality of our work, allows us to be consistently awarded new projects such as this,” said HPI President and CEO Hal Pontez.

He continued, “Throughout this project and others we will continue to lend our expertise in providing custom-engineered solutions, and further demonstrate why we are a leading international provider of turbomachinery solutions.”
