High-tech process to eliminate the requirement for combustion outages between HGP and major overhauls.
Until recently, gas turbines were manufactured with an expected operating time between overhauls of typically 8,000 hours when operating on gas fuel. Utilising the latest technology, plant users expect the most efficient performance levels available on the market. However, the addition of certain new or upgraded components.
To older equipment can bring attractive gains in terms of improved availability, improved fuel economy and increased power output.
With regard to availability, MJB International has introduced a programme to greatly improve the durability of combustion system components. This programme improves cost effectiveness of gas turbine operation by increasing combustion inspection intervals by up to 16000 hours, and consequently leading to improved availability.
