Work together with GE to create the best spare gas generator part strategy for your installed generator assets. With planning, you can lower power plant generator downtime in case of major component failure and address any findings during planned inspections so that they can be fixed before the end of the outage. Strategic spares can be mutualized between identical assets.
Typical strategic spare generator parts include:
Having the right power plant generator parts on hand before the beginning of an outage is vital for on-time execution. Your outage generator parts will have to support the open/close mechanical activities as well as the most common electrical repairs.
The parts needed to support open/close mechanical activities include:
The parts needed to support the most common electrical repairs are:
Auxiliary systems upgrades can provide full compliance with today’s safety regulations for power plant generators.
From generator assessments to identifying generator upgrade potentials, through partial modernizations, to replacements of complete systems, we address parts obsolescence, safety regulations, redundancy, or reliability requirements.
This retrofit kit is engineered to prevent reoccurrence of edge wear and desensitize the bearing to causes of misalignment such as foundation settling, thermal distortion, and cold-to-hot-to-cold growth mismatch, which could lead to elevated bearing metal temperatures and bearing damage in generators.
The improved hydrogen seal ring is engineered with a mechanical stop to limit seal ring movement during transient seal oil pressures and restore normal oil flow path more efficiently, reducing the risk of significant seal oil ingress into the generator.
Newly engineered to improve the ease of brush and spring replacement, the enhanced generator collector brush holder increases brush life, decreases the time required for brush change-out, and reduces the risk of collector flashovers.
If your plant was engineered for base load and is now load cycling, supplying reactive power or starting and stopping, the reliability of your generator can be increased by implementing a generator flexibilization package.
