Rick Woody
General Manager

Rick Woody brings a higher level of experience to TTS and RTS with over 35 years of experience in the oil and gas and power generation markets. While with Rolls Royce and Cooper Energy Service, Rick refined his industry expertise including detailed knowledge of integrals, separables, gas compression operations and maintenance on both turbine and reciprocating applications.

Previously, he managed service and sales teams including the successful execution of O&M contracts, equipment upgrades, technical support, and training. Rick’s focus is delivering high levels of customer service and technical support for client’s rotating equipment.


Larry Blaha
Operations Manager

Operators have depended on Larry to solve their problems with onshore and offshore integrals, separables and compressors for over four decades. In that time, he has managed several hundred projects-assembling, installing and commissioning units across the globe.

Larry specialized in clean-burn Cooper Bessemer engine models, upgrades and total operational capabilities but is very familiar with rotating equipment of every description including gas turbines, rotating compressors and ancillary equipment. His experience at Cooper Energy Services and later with Cooper Cameron managing field crews, installing refurbished and new equipment has prepared him well to run operations for RTS.
