Plant shutdown for major maintenance

Project Overview

The customer shut down its power plant to have major maintenance services performed on all of its equipment including: both GHH Borsig and Nuovo Pignone steam turbines and compressors.

Key Challenges

  • In 40 days, EthosEnergy executed a major maintenance program for (4) steam turbines, (3) gear boxes & (8) centrifugal compressors
  • Auxiliary equipment: (11) pumps, (44) electrical motors, (4) trip valves
  • The main work performed on these units was disassembly, inspection & reassembly
  • The scope also included repair of bladecarriers from the steam turbine in EthosEnergy’s facility

The EthosEnergy Solution

In order to complete the schedule EthosEnergy started the steam turbine's disassembly in parallel, working 24 hours a day.

This action allowed the blade carriers to be quickly shipped out by plane to the repair facility.

The field activities to re-assemble all equipment were executed in parallel while EthosEnergy performed the repair of other components.

Project Highlights

All units started properly with excellent vibration values and optimal parameters. Other key highlights of the project are:
