Power Company in Georgia Increases Turbine Efficiency with L-705

A power company in Georgia was one of our first customers in turbine laser alignment. They originally bought an L-711 (one of our early alignment systems) in 1979 and since then have upgraded their system many times and use our lasers for all of their outages. They tell us that on the very first alignment they did with our lasers, they were able to increase the efficiency of their turbines significantly. The way they put it is that before laser alignment, the turbine rotor took 10 minutes to stop rotating after shut down but after laser alignment it took 34 minutes! They are confident that the system paid for itself in the first month of operation. This does not even count the time they saved on their outages by using lasers versus tight wire.
