Reciprocating Technology Services is Acquired

Reciprocating Technology Services is acquired by the Cooper Machinery Services family of distinguished brands.

Cooper Machinery Services (“Cooper”), a portfolio company of Arcline Investment Management, recently completed the acquisition of RTS, a TTS Energy Services company. Previously, Arcline had acquired Cooper from BHGE. The combined companies were rolled out at the GMRC in San Antonio in October.

“It has been an absolute honor and pleasure to work with the RTS management team, mechanics, field technicians, and support personnel. We all worked hard to start this company and to build a successful brand. Our efforts were clearly recognized by others in the industry.” Said Frank Hoegler, Former President of RTS and Vice President at TTS Energy Services.

RTS operated as an entirely separate division of TTS Energy Services since 2014, and for the past five years, Frank has split his time and energies between RTS and Turbine Technology Services, the sister organization of RTS. “With the separation of RTS, my focus is now squarely on growth for TTS and a smooth transition for RTS.”

“It is high praise indeed that Frank and his team built, in a very short time, an organization chosen to join such an exciting new venture in the gas compression industry. TTS Energy Services management saw this as an opportunity for the RTS operation to grow dramatically and succeed at a scale that would otherwise have taken years to achieve,” said TTS Energy Services CEO, Tony Thornton.

Turbine Technology Services Partners with Voith Establishing Actuator Test Stand

New Workshop at TTS Houston Facility Provides Greater Convenience to Voith’s Local Oil & Gas Clients

Houston, TX (09/04/2018) – Turbine Technology Services (TTS) and Voith recently joined forces to add an actuator, governor and turbomachinery (AGT) test stand at the TTS Houston facility. This development brings a support network of trained technicians to the Houston area, offering greater convenience for Voith’s local oil & gas clients.

TTS opened its facility in Houston in 2016 in conjunction with its sister company Reciprocating Technology Services (RTS). RTS has been working closely with Voith in a joint development effort to provide a new starting technology for large reciprocating engines that provide zero emissions and many other benefits.

“We loved the idea of bringing Voith into our shop,” said Frank Hoegler, TTS Vice President. “This partnership provides us the opportunity for a closer relationship with Voith and its Houston-area customers. What’s great is that TTS doesn’t compete with Voith, but we share a lot of mutual clients, so it’s a win-win situation for us and our customers.”

The AGT test stand has been up-and-running for over a month, explained Thad Berry, sales account manager at Voith Digital Solutions, Inc.

“We’ve had people knocking on our door since day one,” Berry said. “Having a local, certified team of trained technicians means a lot to our Houston customers. They want a local support network that understands the actuators and their applications with the proper equipment, tools, and expertise to perform critical maintenance and emergency repairs.”

Berry continued, “Actuators can be delivered directly from the field to Voith and its trained technicians – reducing the workload and time involved with shipping. That, in turn, means that repairs and maintenance can be completed faster, allowing for shorter outages.”

Turbine Technology Services Introduces LODESTAR™ Turbine Parts Management

Industry-leading gas turbine technology company launches new software to increase performance

Turbine Technology Services (TTS), an industry-leading gas turbine technology company, introduces LODESTAR™ Parts Management, a new software that gathers and organizes large amounts of plant operational and unit component life data, then presents that data in actionable reports.

“Lodestar is defined as a star that shows the way,” said Dave May, Parts Group Manager for TTS. “Our new software guides the management of turbine parts. LODESTAR is an easy-to-use, cloud-based software empowering users to make informed decisions and accurately plan.”

LODESTAR tracks the full maintenance history and calculates remaining component useful life using online operational data, inspection data, TILs, and component life standards and experience. The software provides tools that manipulate this data to eliminate operational surprises including:

  • Simulator-based future planning (“what if” scenarios).
  • Graphical representation of maintenance timelines.
  • Cost and value reports and budget planning.

“We project that digital systems and processes like LODESTAR will generate 16 percent cost savings,” said Tony Thornton, President of TTS. “With today’s budget sensitivity, that is significant.”

Cost savings aren’t the only driver for adoption, additional benefits include:

  • Accommodates a more fluid workforce. LODESTAR is licensed by the unit and not by the seat. Train the entire maintenance team at no additional cost.
  • Provides consistent data visibility to all stakeholders.
  • Improves levels of innovation and transparency through sophisticated forecasting models.
  • Allows engagement in an ecosystem with technology partners.
