FWTP (Feed Water Turbo-Pump)
Explanation:
TBAA = Turbo-Bombas de Aguas de Alimentación = Feed Water turbo-pump = FWTP.

See page 8 of reference doc below for Spanish acronym. I'm not really getting many hits for the English acronym; then again, I'm not really getting many for the Spanish one either.

You get quite a few hits for "FW Turbo-Pump".

Hope this helps.
