The 1200 Willis Road facility was heavily involved in Gas Turbine
Assembly until the year 2002 when the rising cost of natural gas
significantly affected the demand for gas turbines.
For the entirety of its existence, and currently, 1200 Willis Road has
been involved in Steam & Gas Turbine repairs as well as Generator
repairs. These repairs could be for Alstom turbines as well as for
GE, Westinghouse/Siemens or Mitsubishi turbines.
Within the last two years, 1200 Willis Road has tooled up to make
turbine blades. The original plan was to make blades for competitor
units, but this plan has been expanded to include Alstom units as well.
