ALPHARETTA, Ga., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wood Group GTS completed three back-to-back major inspections for Entegra Power Group on two GE Frame 7FA gas turbines and one steam turbine generator, at the Gila River Power Station, near Phoenix, Arizona.  The comprehensive inspections are valued at approximately $3 million in total and were accomplished in 45 days to meet Entegra Power Group's requirements.


Bob Stone of Entegra Power stated, "Availability of our turbines is a high priority to Entegra.
