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.
