Discover how to maintain your condenser performance thanks to continuous cleaning solutions.

Condenser tube cleaning system (CTCS)

We design and provide the CTCS your equipment needs. Our automatic condenser tube cleaning methods, formerly known as Technos solutions, help to maintain power plant efficiency. GE can adapt to your individual flow and water constraints, ultimately delivering the solution that works for your needs, from design to manufacturing.

Benefits of employing a condenser tube cleaning system:

  • Maintain condenser performance
  • Continuously clean an operating unit—with no shutdown
  • Works without any chemical treatment
  • No environmental impact
Pumping systems

Pumps and motors

We offer a wide range of experience on a number of different power plant pumping systems (both in nuclear islands and turbine halls). From regular maintenance operations to complete replacement, GE can provide the right solution that best fits your needs, as your nuclear pump manufacturer.
