What you should know

Maintenance costs and machine availability are two of the most important concerns to a heavy-duty gas turbine equipment owner. That’s why it’s important to create a thorough maintenance program to help reduce your costs while increasing equipment availability. For this maintenance program to be effective, owners should develop a general understanding of the relationship between the operating plans and priorities for the plant, the skill level of operating and maintenance personnel, and all equipment manufacturer’s recommendations regarding the number and types of inspections, spare parts planning, and other major factors affecting component life and proper operation of the equipment.

In this technical paper we will review operating and maintenance practices for heavy-duty gas turbines in detail, with emphasis on types of inspections and operating factors that influence maintenance schedules.
