PAL Turbine Services, LLC offers a cadre of GE-trained field service and factory engineers, who collectively have over 500 years of turbine experience to meet your service needs. We believe that PAL offers the power generation industry unparalleled depth and breadth of gas turbine, steam turbine and generator technical expertise. Most of our knowledge and field experience came during our GE years, as well as elsewhere in the industry during the twentieth century, to the benefit of clients in the twenty-first.
If you have never used our services, you still may have heard of us. During our GE days, we wore many hats: senior field engineer, area engineer, manager of field services and lead technical advisors. We trained over 1000 field engineers at the Field Engineering Development Center. Dave Lucier managed the Field Engineering Program (FEP, 1980-83), as well as being a lead technical trainer in Fuel Regulator and Speedtronic™ control systems. Al Shuman, John Mitchell and Doug Lemmo were training specialists on gas and steam turbine maintenance and installations at the Center. Chances are GE field engineers who have provided services for you in the past are graduates of the FEP during our tenure. Furthermore, since leaving GE, we’ve taught hundreds of on-site training schools and multi-client seminars, in addition to our main responsibilities as turbine field engineers.
PAL began providing gas turbine services. In recent years, several ex-GE factory and field engineers have joined the PAL team. Thus, we have been able to broaden our services into steam turbine and most recently, generator field engineering services have been offered. Please refer to the COMPANY sub-tab PAL resumes to see some of the faces and profiles of our expert staff. They are all recognized experts.
Mechanical and electrical field engineering services on GE turbines and generators are PAL specialties. Since forming PAL in 1999, we have been providing field engineering services and expert technical support on overhauls and installations. Because our team has the know-how and our overhead is low, we can keep our rates very competitive. Our reaction time is designed to be immediate with our Turbine Online Problem Solving (TOPS) services, particularly when an unforeseen outage takes you down. We are proud of our reputation throughout the power industry. Ask our other valued clients about us.
PAL also offers other services: fuel and control system upgrades, consultations on bid specifications, insurance investigations, root cause failure analysis, borescope inspections and interpretation of OEM conversions, modifications and upgrades (CMU).
