Based on its recent analysis of the cogeneration market, Frost & Sullivan recognises Turbomach with the 2011 European Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award. The company's high quality, innovative, efficient, easy to integrate and cost-effective cogeneration technologies have enabled end-users to adapt rapidly to changing technological demands.
"Outstanding product quality and customer service have underpinned Turbomach's leading position in the market," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Pritil Gunjan. "The company that adopted integrated cogeneration systems not only meet the energy requirements of both industrial and public sectors, but also satisfy key power plant demands for high efficiency, availability and reliability, and short pay-back time."
Turbomach has consistently provided the market with high efficiency solutions that have transformed the way the cogeneration industry operates. Its solutions support reduced emissions and enhanced product performance. Among its trend-setting offerings include ‘SoLoNOx™' technology that leverages the benefits of fuel flexibility and SoLoNox technology.
"The new and revolutionary ‘SoLoNOX' technology marks a significant advance, particularly in the context of low emissions and superior performance," remarks Gunjan. "It adapts the gas turbine's fuel system according to the specific gas composition and can provide filters for the right upstream treatment of that fuel."
The InSight Sytem™ represents another innovative product offering. InSight System is world-class equipment health management, continually working to save customers' time and money. With OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Certified Condition Assessments and proactive technical support, it gives customers a clear vision, focus and understanding of your turbomachinery operations it ensures that the company has real-time information about the condition of its plants, thereby supporting faster customer response in cases of unexpected down time. At the same time, it allows for the storage of large data volumes relating to the plants' operating parameters, consequently facilitating efficient monitoring and response time to the customers needs.
Turbomach's SoLoNox technology, introduced almost twenty years ago, marks another milestone. Gas turbines with SoLoNOx use dry lean-premixed combustion technology to ensure uniform air/fuel mixture for clean combustion.
"Features like fuel flexibility and cost effectiveness options give the product a head start against competing offerings," adds Gunjan. "SoLoNOx technology has more than 35 million operating hours and has saved over 1.2 million tons of NOx emissions since its introduction."
A complete range of high quality generating packages, backed by technical expertise and exceptional customer support, has contributed to the company's outstanding performance. The company works together with its customers to develop customised solutions that help clients accelerate their economical benefits.
"Superior packaging, a comprehensive product portfolio and quality personnel are among the key value-added offerings that Turbomach provides its customers," states Gunjan. "The company's manufactured packages as well as turnkey plants are based on a packaging concept that follows the most up-to-date trends in technology and applications."
This packaging which is designed for varied environmental conditions, produces self-regulating equipment that is easy to operate and maintain, and guarantees reliable performance across a power station.
"The company's ‘plug-and-play' design ensures greater flexibility and permits the configuration of the turbine in a single package supplied by Turbomach, with high performance levels even at partial load," says Gunjan.
Turbomach's work with its customers does not end with the sale of a product or solution - the company focuses on providing high quality after-sales service as well. Clients have repeatedly testified to the exceptional support provided by Turbomach's technically experienced staff.
Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in developing a product with innovative elements that leverages leading edge technologies, that offers valued added features and benefits, supports increased customer ROI and has the potential for enhanced customer acquisition/penetration.
