Power plants built 20 years ago weren't optimized to achieve the operational goals of today and physics and financial challenges of the near-future. So, how can we prepare?

Did you know that 50% of rework is caused by removal and installation of parts that don’t require inspection? GE’s rotor-in major inspection (RI-MI) makes the process efficient while aiming to meet the highest turbine standards.
Time to install
Our major inspection with rotor in-situ can prevent some 30–40% of outage labor hours spent removing components to access the gas turbine. No inspection processes are eliminated. The rotor can be rotated 360° while lower-half stator vanes can be cleaned and inspected.
Unit is eligible: Introduction of rotor-in major inspection to CPM and service manager—internal review of conditions of applicability
Presentation of rotor-in major inspection to customer: Planning pre-outage inspections
Internal reviews: CPM, PAC, service manager, and lead FE of borescope inspection, IGV inspection, and historical data
Final decision: Customer agreement for rotor-in major inspection settled
