Global Gas Turbine System Expertise

Since 1959, UniversalAET has designed, manufactured and supervised the installation of thousands of gas turbine systems around the globe. Our expertise includes rsthand experience with major turbine brands, including General Electric, Kawasaki, Nuovu Pignone, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce and Siemens-Westinghouse. World-renowned, our resume includes turbine systems installed in locations such as Abu Dhabi, Venezuela, Brunei and offshore platforms in the North Sea.

Whether you are looking to replace a current turbine system or to install a new turbine system, UniversalAET has the expertise to help. The air and exhaust needs for a turbine are quite complex. Those needs are noise reduction, inlet air treatment, minimization of back pressure, management of temperature, optimization of ow, structural integrity, project management, logistics and emissions treatment. With one eye on customer needs and the other on its global capabilities, UniversalAET is able to provide cost-effective turbine system design and production.

Project Case Study

In December 2011, UniversalAET began replacing complete exhaust systems for two Westinghouse 501D5 gas turbines (103.7 MW each) for the Puget Sound Energy-Fredonia station in Mount Vernon, Washington. The scope included expansion joints, transitions, silencers, stacks, appearance siding, new ladders and platforms, as well as demolition and installation for each system. UniversalAET offered a system design that enhanced the acoustic design while improving the system longevity and maintaining system pressure loss performance.

A compressed project timeline required fabrication and installation of the equipment by July 1, 2012, so Puget Sound Energy could be generating revenue. The turbines could not be taken out of service until early May, requiring a highly coordinated effort of equipment production, logistics, demolition and installation.

Recommendation

“Randy’s team at Universal won the bid to build our WD 501D5 exhaust systems. Randy was the project manager. It was a pleasure to work with him. He was extremely responsive (via email, site visits, conference calls), and very accountable. His commitment to getting the job done right, safely, on time and on schedule, made this multimillion-dollar project proceed seamlessly. Thanks, Randy!”
