Dear Keith (with Precision Iceblast),
We can't say enough about the work your company has done for us over the last couple of years. The work ethic your people bring to the job site is a true rarity. From “Safety First” commitment to “What Can We Do To Help” attitudes is what really what makes it work. The CO2 blasting done on our HRSG tubes has increased the total output of the Gas Turbines as much as 3 Megawatts per units and the repairs made to our exhaust stacks will extend the life of the plant for many years. We look forward to working your company in the future on CO2 tube blasting to help maintain equipment performance and upcoming projects such as sealing our turbine building roofs.
The City of Lakeland contracted with Siemens-Westinghouse to use High-Volume, High-Pressure Air to Blast our Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG). Siemens-Westinghouse subcontracted Precision Iceblast Corporation to be their contractor to perform the actual work. Siemens-Westinghouse did provide a contact to oversee their progress and address any issues that might arise during the progress of the work.
Precision Iceblast Corporation arrived onsite and began working to prep our HRSG to begin their task of cleaning the finned-tube-bundles of our Nooter/Eriksen HRSG. Precision Iceblast Corporation employees were extremely competent and conscious about their work for the City of Lakeland and did their best effort to remove all of the rust to improve our unit’s performance. The first time Precision Iceblast Corporation employees cleaned our HRSG, they removed 4,500 pounds of rust.

Dear Gary [with Precision Iceblast],
Just a short note to let you know how much I enjoyed working with you and your men. I only wish that all the contractors that come to our plant works as safe and with the dedication to getting the job done that your employees do. Working with you has been one of this years greatest jobs done. I have been talking with others about the job you did for us and the way the men conducted themselves on and off the job.
I hope I have the pleasure of working with you again.
