With the forthcoming gasworld Latin American gases conference just three months away, it appears to be an interesting time for turbomachinery engineering services in the region.

According to a release from Turbine Technology Services Corporation, the demand for turbomachinery engineering services is showing growth in Latin America.

Turbine Technology Services Corporation (TTS) is a full-service gas turbine engineering services firm based in Orlando, Florida and exhibited at the XII Latinamerican Turbomachinery Congress and Exhibition in Mexico in February – the premier turbomachinery engineering event in the region.

As a leader in turbomachinery engineering, the company was exhibiting its gas turbine upgrade and modification services to representatives from Latin American energy companies.

As ageing Latin American power plants experience equipment stress and fatigue, it becomes necessary to upgrade many systems and components to maintain optimal operation levels—an opportunity for service providers to present retrofit and modification options, according to TTS.

Released in a statement prior to the event, Frank Hoegler, the company’s Vice President of Sales for the Americas, referred to both its attendance and the wider dynamics going on in the region. He said, “The Turbomachinery Congress is an opportunity to showcase TTS’ products and services.”

“There is high demand for our project management expertise throughout Latin America, where we have worked in numerous projects over the years.”

With just three months to go until the gasworld Latin American Conference 2011, a panel of speakers have been lined-up for the event to discuss the climate for industrial gases and equipment in South America.

Among those set to be present – and speaking – is Indura’s Jaime Castañeda Heavey, Corporative General Manager, Indústria Brasileira de Gases Ltda (IBG), President Newton de Oliveira, Metso Brazil’s Jorge Souza, and Nitrotec Brazil’s Carlos Salla.
