Gas-turbine maintenance and inspection services
Our engineering and technical staff can provide full minor and major inspections on flange-to-flange gas turbines and generators in accordance with OEM maintenance procedures, as well as additional checks based on our extensive experience and detailed knowledge of common unit failures. Based on the results of the inspection, Precision Gas Turbine provides recommendations for repair as well as future inspection intervals to monitor pertinent findings.
Gas-turbine outage planning and management services
Our numerous outage planning and management services help our customers plan their outages well in advance, providing work-scope development cultivated on condition based unit assessments, level three scheduling, spare parts recommendations, tooling requirements and audits, cost estimates, and full electronic documentation packages.
Gas-turbine repair and upgrade engineering
Unexpected findings are common when performing maintenance on any gas turbine. We view these findings as an opportunity to not just replace the damaged component with an expensive, long lead-time part, but to review the failure mechanism, analyze whether the component can be repaired or refurbished, and try to develop upgrades on the component to prevent similar damage in the future.
Installed equipment is constantly being looked at and assessed for possible enhancements. Such enhancements are recommended to improve overall plant safety, operability, and maintainability. Included with all such recommendations are detailed cost/benefit and risk analyses for cost justification. Precision Gas Turbine takes these ideas from the conceptual stage to final completion.
Gas-turbine parts procurement
With a long-standing industry presence, Precision Gas Turbine has developed relationships with various aftermarket suppliers of consumable parts for the fleets we maintain. Between this network of suppliers and our close relationships with the fleet users around the world, we can quickly find outage parts at significantly reduced pricing for maintenance or forced outages. We have access to a wide range of parts for the V64, V84, V94, SGT5, SGT6 and 501F fleets.
