Turner Industries Repairs Turbine for City of New Orleans
Turner Industries recently completed a small outage with the Sewerage & Water Board (S&WB) of New Orleans.
S&WB of New Orleans Mechanical Engineer Michael Genova contacted Turner’s Specialized Welding Services, which was tasked with welding a large crack on the exhaust diffuser cone for the Unit 6 turbine. These turbines power New Orleans’ surface water drainage system and electricity to the city’s drinking water and sewage treatment systems. Working in conjunction with S&WB of New Orleans and General Electric, Turner was able to complete the repair in two days, and it was the company’s first job with the City of New Orleans.
