Alba Power Nuclear Support


By | Alba News

Alba Power were pleased to assist when one of our key clients and one of the nation’s key power providers called to assist with some Olympus issues at site.

Given the ongoing restrictions, a robust plan had to be created quickly to allow safe travel and site work.  Steve Collie, our Contract Engineer, was able to travel to site within a few hours of notification where he was able to work through our processes in a safe environment with strict self-distancing in place.

After a few short hours we were able to return the unit to service while we plan further works to improve reliability.

A delighted client praised us not only for this job but for the ongoing overhauls that we are currently working on and commented that both our workshop and site and field work is industry leading.

We look forward to continuing to support this client during and post COVID-19.

Michael Johnston - Alba Power

Due to an increasing level of contracts and therefore works and support requirements, we are pleased to announce that Michael Johnston, our Head of Business Development, has relocated to Dubai to assist with our growth under Sulzer Abu Dhabi and our Gas Turbine Services group.

With large contracts already in the region, this change allows us to focus directly and more intensely on our clients requirements. In addition we will be utilising our parent companies facilities in their Electro Mechanical shop in Abu Dhabi. This will allow us to complete power turbine overhauls, controls upgrades, front line gas turbine support as well as locating spares, tooling and lease engines for our key clients in the region.

Michael commented, “ This is the culmination of many years of work and desire to grow in the region and both increase and improve upon our local service. Having the additional backing of Sulzer, our parent company, also improves the services and engines we can now support. I am looking forward to the challenge of growing the Alba business further in the UAE and beyond.”

Alba Power Gas Turbine Service & Repair

At Alba Power we have successfully been working with a Petrochemical client based in the US for the past decade and we are delighted to confirm that, after review, this client has renewed for a further ten years.  Additionally the new contract also has further scope for new parts, innovative upgrades and increased levels of support.

Campbell Archibald, Alba’s Sales Director, commented, “This has truly been a collaborative approach from the start, and whilst the client reviewed competitive options, Alba Power was proven to be the leading provider for these gas turbine services.  We would like to thank them for their ongoing support and we look forward to working with them for the next ten years and beyond.”
