Turbine Control & Protection

Turbine machinery efficiency, reliability and operational safety are of great importance. Upgrading the control and protection systems such machines is part of its normal life cycle in order to maintain or meet the latest standards and modern operational requirements.

MAS S.A. specializes in the upgrade of turbine control & protection systems providing cost-effective, latest technology, customized solutions to fit any machine, process and client specifications. With over 40 years of experience, we provide field proven solutions for Gas turbines, Steam turbines and Hydro turbines or any make, age and size.  Our experience covers application in Power Production, Oil & Gas and Heavy industry applications. 

Quality, safety, performance and reliability are of the highest importance no matter the application.  For this reason MAS S.A. uses only products and technologies from industry leading manufactures such as Woodward which also ensures the machine’s OEM acceptance.

The upgrade of the control systems of existing machines is not an easy task. This is especially true when modifying an old hydro-mechanical system to a latest technology electronic system. Our engineering teams have both the know-how and experience to provide solutions for the most demanding tasks often exceeding customer and OEM expectations. Upgrade scope may vary depending on machine needs and customer requirements and usually includes Engineering, Procurement and Installation of:

  • On-machine equipment which usually new actuator controls or fuel delivery systems to enable fast and precise speed control. Machine instrumentation may also be upgraded or extended to comply with latest control & safety standards.
  • Unit Control Panels (UCP) which houses the new machine control systems. Systems often delivered within the UCP include: unit control systems, auxiliaries controls, alternator/compressor controls, vibration monitoring systems, ESD, HMI, etc.
  • Local/Remote Panels which enable the supervision and control of the machine on the field or from a remote location.   

 Depending on the upgrade scope and the machine state, the benefits expected from such project are:

  • Increased availability & reliability (less down time)
  • Increased machine lifetime
  • Increased operational flexibility
  • Better overall process control
  • Increased revenue
  • Reduced maintenance costs
