Gas Turbine Applications (GTA) in Calera, Oklahoma, was incorporated in 1984 as a privately held corporation. The initial company focus was as a service support facility for Solar gas turbine products. Due to urging by our customers, it was soon expanded to include component overhauls. The success of our work convinced the company to again expand into the engine overhaul work.
The 4000 square foot Saturn test facility was built in 1986 and full overhauls began that year. In 1992, the Centaur test cell was completed and overhauls for these products were added. A new 14,500 square foot shop with 20 foot high ceilings and a 7 ton walking bridge crane was completed in 1996.
Since our beginning, GTA has provided service, parts, support, and overhauls to most gas and oil companies based in the United States. In 1994, we performed overhauls of three Centaur generator engines to the United Arab Emirates for installation in Saudi Arabia. We have provided Saturn and Centaur overhaul services to ESSO Resources™ in Canada, Transgas Pipeline™ in Saskatchewan, Qatar General Petroleum™ in Qatar, and the National Gas Company™ in Trinidad and Tobago. After more than 18 years, GTA has developed a reputation for high-quality overhaul work, reasonable prices, and reliable field service support.
