GP Strategies to Provide EtaPRO™ System to Northland Power

COLUMBIA, Md., Sept. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Global performance improvement solutions 
provider GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX) today announced that Northland 
Power Inc. (NPI) has selected the EtaPRO(™) Performance and Condition 
Monitoring System for implementation at selected thermal plants, solar farms 
and wind turbine sites located in Canada. The system will provide critical 
production, performance and reliability information to facility and corporate 
asset managers. 
NPI selected the EtaPRO System for broader deployment following its success at 
the Thorold Cogeneration Plant. "The Thorold plant staff quickly took hold of 
the EtaPRO technologies to streamline many day-to-day tasks, including load 
forecasting and interacting with the market," said Greg Lennox, Construction 
General Manager for NPI. "We were impressed with the breadth of EtaPRO System 
technologies and GP Strategies' willingness to be flexible in meeting our 
needs." The EtaPRO System will be installed at each generating site, as well 
at the Northland Power corporate offices in Toronto. The system will provide 
real-time monitoring, thermodynamic modeling and anomaly detection, as well as 
dashboards, reports, screens, alerts and roll-up of facility information. In 
addition, GP Strategies will automate the collection of data from Ontario's 
Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), which will allow Northland 
Power to more efficiently market its power for each facility with less 
manpower required. 
"We are pleased that NPI selected GP Strategies to expand the EtaPRO System. 
We look forward to working directly with NPI's management and operations 
groups," stated Joe Nasal, Senior Vice President of GP Strategies' Energy 
Services Group. "The NPI projects showcase how the EtaPRO System technologies 
can bring value to both thermal plants and renewables," added Mr. Nasal. 
The EtaPRO System is deployed in 34 countries on over 1,000 generating units.
