ALPHARETTA, Ga., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Wood Group GTS has signed a
four-year operations and maintenance (O&M) contract with Entegra Power Group
and Sundevil Power Holdings to operate the Gila River Power Station, one of
the largest independent power plants in the US. Located near Phoenix, the
station has eight GE Frame 7FA gas turbines, eight heat recovery steam
generators and is capable of producing 2,200 MW of electrical power.

Wood Group GTS currently provides gas turbine upgrades, repairs and outage
services to the facility and also recently secured a major maintenance
inspection contract for two gas turbines and one steam generator at the site.

The Gila River Power Station was an early adopter of Wood Group GTS' ECOMAX^®
system, an automated gas turbine tuning technology that enables the operator
to optimize gas turbine combustor and overall gas turbine performance on a
real-time basis. Currently, ECOMAX is installed on six of the gas turbines,
and the new agreement includes a provision to install ECOMAX on the other two
units. Following the installation of the initial six ECOMAX systems, power
output at the station increased 1.5 - 2.0 percent, while heat rate decreased
by up to 0.25 percent.

"We focus on life-cycle value for our customers, not just efficient daily
operations and management of power plants like Gila River," said Frank Avery
of Wood Group GTS. "Using our O&M experience, engineering experience and
unique technology we identified ways to increase the overall plant performance
through increased output and efficiency as part of the services we offer. WG
GTS' services have been specifically engineered to deliver this level of value
for all our customers."
