Siemens team selected for NIST-ATP award

2 November 2004 � Siemens Westinghouse (SWPC) and MesoScribe Technologies, Inc have been awarded a four-year, $5.4m programme from the US Department of Commerce.

The award, given by the department's National Institute of Standards and Technology � Advanced Technology Programme (NIST�ATP) will see the development of embedded sensors capable of withstanding harsh environments.

The sensors will be integrated in a wireless telemetry system to enable thermal, mechanical and wear sensing in operating gas turbines for condition-based maintenance.

It is hoped that the technology of SWPC has the potential save operators and owners of gas and steam turbines worldwide over $86m per year through lower cost of operation and lower emissions.

The programme will focus on the area of smart coatings for component condition monitoring and is scheduled to begin this month.
