Gas Turbine World Annual Handbook Available Online, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - Gas Turbine World's annual Handbook, the Power Industry's standard reference guide for gas turbine prices and performance specifications, is now available online from Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas).

"Now, for the first time, power project developers, original equipment manufacturers, plant owners, and engineering & construction firms can easily and rapidly access critical performance parameters and prices for gas turbines," said Ed Lewis, president and chief executive at Industrial Info Resources. "Existing subscribers to Gas Turbine World will be able to access the current annual Handbook for no added cost. And non-subscribers can purchase online access to this vital reference guide," he said.

"Power plant developers, equipment suppliers, and project owners will benefit by having instant access to this widely used reference guide," Lewis added. "Now, subscribers will never have to worry about a colleague accidentally walking off with their copy of this important industry guide."

Gas Turbine World has published an annual Handbook since 1976. This is the first time it will be available in an online version.

"People may be surprised to learn how often we get calls for a copy of the prior year's Handbooks," said Vic deBiasi, founder, editor, and publisher of Gas Turbine World. "The GTW Handbook is an essential resource for anyone in the power business. The gas turbine pricing information we have is unavailable anywhere else. Our equipment performance specifications are used by firms around the world. We are delighted that our partnership with Industrial Info will make this authoritative, objective Handbook available to anyone in the world when they need it."

This year's GTW Handbook has detailed sections on engineering & operations, turbine inlet cooling, projected equipment prices, equipment performance specifications, gasification & IGCC power, and global orders and installations. A company directory and list of technical project support resources also are provided for easy reference.

The Online version of the GTW Handbook will also contain quick links to access performance and pricing for simple-cycle generators, combined-cycle generators, and mechanical drives.

Making the GTW Handbook available in a PDF format is Industrial Info's first step toward digitizing the market-critical data contained in that annual publication. In 2011 Industrial Info will introduce a searchable, interactive database of all information contained in previous GTW Handbooks, Lewis noted.

"Bringing this critical information to the market in a digital format will make this industrial project data instantly available to market participants so they can more effectively develop budgets for capital projects," Lewis said. "This is another demonstration of our commitment to providing global market intelligence that constantly moves forward. We have worked closely with Vic deBiasi and his outstanding GTW team and we share a commitment to objective, verified data as the foundation for success in the power business."

Buyers of the current 2010 GTW Handbook can access the current edition of the Handbook at no extra charge, plus previous editions going back to 2006. They also can access the gas turbine design ratings and pricing sections of earlier Handbooks that were published starting in 1982.

Non-subscribers can access the 2010 GTW Handbook for $499, which includes a subscription to the GTW magazine, which is published bi-monthly.
