Power Systems Mfg, LLC (PSM), an Alstom Group company, has opened its new 76,000 square foot gas turbine component repair and reconditioning plant at its headquarters in Jupiter, Florida, as part of its major expansion plans. Over the next three years, the expansion is projected to add up to 100 new employees. The facility will integrate green technologies and principles as well as advanced “F” class process technologies such as high temperature brazing, laser welding and heat treat.

Other “F” class process technologies include HVOF (High Velocity Oxygen Fuel) and plasma coating, CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) machining, digital x-ray, and a total metallurgical laboratory.

Bob Kraft, president and co-founder of PSM, said “It will allow us to meet increased customer demand and provide additional skilled jobs as we expand from designing, manufacturing and testing new parts to repairing and upgrading used parts.”

The new facility will be the world’s first LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) registered gas turbine reconditioning facility.

PSM is an international provider of improved technology parts for industrial gas turbines utilized by utilities and industrial firms to produce electricity.
