Power Systems Mfg. (PSM), an Alstom Group company, opened a 76,000-square-foot gas-turbine component repair and reconditioning facility in Jupiter, Fla. The project is expected to add up to 100 new employees over the next three years. The shop was designed to incorporate green technologies and is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) registered gas-turbine repair facility in the world. It includes technologies such as high-temperature brazing and heat treating, laser welding, CNC machining, and high-velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) and plasma coating. The facility also has a complete metallurgical laboratory.

The new facility is co-located with PSM’s technology center. PSM, which was founded in 1998, is a global supplier of technology components for gas turbines used by utilities and industrial companies to generate electricity. Its product line includes stationary and rotating airfoil parts and low-emission combustion systems.
