TEServices strives to add value for our customers by increasing reliability and reducing maintenance costs of the operation and maintenance of their gas turbines.
How we support IGT end-users/owners
Management of your components, creating repair and bid specifications, selecting the repair and coating vendor, and verifying them during the refurbishment of your IGT components is critical. TEServices can do one or all of these items when you or your company do not have the resources (expertise or time). Furthermore, TEServices has the (superalloy) metallurgical and NDT expertise in-house to perform failure analysis, including root cause investigation, component assessment before and after refurbishment and process (stripping, coating, heat treatment, welding, brazing, etc.) qualification
