2015 Power-Gen International had a record-setting attendance of more than 22,000 attendees and 1,400 exhibitors. I noted that for technology vendors focused on improving product support, 2015 Power-Gen International has been a great venue for education, networking and identifying new business opportunities. I was especially excited to see the unveiling of the C1000S microturbine, as part of Capstone Turbine Corporation’s (www.capstoneturbine.com) Signature series microturbine energy systems. This is the type of equipment that is perfect for CaseBank’s guided diagnostics—a sophisticated, high-value product comprised of mechanical components, driven by electronics and controlled by software. Of additional interest, Capstone’s microturbine benefits both the customer and the environment. For companies trying to meet the requirements of last week’s Paris climate change agreement, it won’t be possible without investing in new energy technologies.
In the case of Capstone, it continues to lead as the world’s clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems. “The updates and changes implemented into the Signature series are meant to solidify the C1000S product as the smartest one-megawatt turbine energy system on the global distributed generation market,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer at Capstone Turbine. Capstone solutions reduce energy costs, ensure power availability and contribute to protect the environment with their ultra-low emissions. They can also operate on different liquid or gaseous fuels, making Capstone a clean, reliable source of energy.
Wherever I turned within the conference I encountered manufacturers seeking ways to improve their product and customer support by optimizing cost, quality and speed of service. Whether it was oil, coal, gas, hydro, nuclear or renewables, I met over fifty different power generation equipment providers that expressed a common concern for improving mean-time-to-repair (MTTR), first-time-fix (FTF), and no-fault-found (NFF) parts replacements. 2015 Power-Gen International provided much-needed information in the numerous presentations covering equipment maintenance, service and operations.
CaseBank Technologies continues to expand its state-of-the-art guided diagnostic solutions, which were perfected in aviation and defense, into other industries such as power generation, automotive, heavy equipment, industrial machinery and rail/ transit. Events like 2015 Power-Gen International continue to validate CaseBank’s investment in advanced technology that improves critical aspects of equipment service and support.
