CST is a Premier Aftermarket OEM Service Provider

CST also provides on-site training, operator interface upgrades for Cimplicity HMIs and computer network troubleshooting. We can customize your or screens to provide an improved interface capable of interfacing with balance of plant equipment. We also offer new systems to replace obsolete hardware no longer supported by the OEMs.

Our experience base has been developed over the years through constant contact with GE’s manufacturing, factory engineering, and product service departments during overhaul/inspection outages, and the installation and start-up of new units and while performing various control modifications and upgrades.

Some of our experience was obtained during our time as part of GE’s “Controls Hot Suitcase Group” (1989 – 1998). This was an elite team comprised of the most highly trained GE Field Startup & Controls Engineers that directly assisted not only the factory’s R&D group as new technology came available and was placed in-service for the first time, but also CM&U retrofit and new unit installations.
