Description

In April of 1987, the Combustion Turbine Systems Division of Westinghouse Electric Corporation was relocated from its prior headquarters in Concordville, Pennsylvania to the World Headquarters of Westinghouse Power Generation located at The Quadrangle, on Alafaya Trail, across from the University of Central in Orlando, Florida. This brochure was prepared shortly after the move, first, as an internal communications document, and then reprinted for general distribution. It features an interview with Augie Scalzo, a long-time gas turbine engineer and engineering manager. After the move to Orlando, Scalzo was named Technical Director of Combustion Turbine Operations.

Scalzo started his career with Westinghouse's Aviation Gas Turbine Division in Kansas City, Kansas, in 1953 and then moved to the Small Steam & Gas Turbine Division headquarters in Lester, Pennsylvania, where he continued his work on industrial and power generation gas turbines. Around 1970, he was appointed Manager of Gas Turbine Engine Engineering, and was generally considered to be the "Father of the W501." This highly successful family of large power generating gas turbines, introduced at around 40MW in 1968, is still the basis of the design of large gas turbines rated at upwards of 300MW.
