Steam Turbine – Generator & Air-Cooled Condenser (ACC)
Steam – Turbine Generator & ACC LTSA
Steam Turbine – Generator and ACC Long Term Service Agreements ensuring greater than 98% availability.
We provide Long Term Service Agreements (LTSA) for Steam – Turbine Generator sets including all ancillary equipment. We were successful in securing the LTSA for our clients 8MW Weir – Allen Steam Turbine unit on an Energy from Waste gasification facility in July 2018.
Our scope also includes the equipment within the Power Island including the Air-Cooled Condenser, vacuum system (liquid ring vacuum pumps) and both the steam bypass and condensate return systems.
Our performance on this contract, led our client to request an additional LTSA covering their two 600kW 2G Biogas CHP Systems.
Online monitoring gives us the ability to optimise performance parameters to ensure that all the equipment we are responsible for is operating at its most efficient level relative to external conditions. We track and trend data to identify abnormalities in equipment performance and to prepare for upcoming outage periods to ensure that the equipment is available throughout the operational period.
We have a close working relationship with OEM suppliers to ensure that the equipment within our scope is managed to the best possible level and, in instances where additional support is required, we utilise their experience and skills to provide tailored solutions. We also harness these relationships to guarantee competitive spares prices across the entire equipment range.
Safety is paramount and all maintenance activities are planned thoroughly to mitigate any risk to individuals and plant. We work closely with our clients to ensure that all safety documentation and guidelines are in place prior to work commencing and keep in constant communication to enable us to tailor any processes for the specific working environment.
Our stringent planning ensures that maintenance periods are always adhered to, this eliminates or minimises potential program creep.
Our remote monitoring ability provides additional support to operators by allowing them to contact us 24/7 regarding any concerns and we can access operational information through a data link, thereby allowing us to provide critical support when it is required.
Since our LTSA agreement has been in place we have ensured greater than 98% availability of the equipment including maintenance periods. All maintenance activities have been thoroughly planned and executed during plant shutdowns to ensure the unit is available when our client requires it.
Our remote access capabilities have benefitted client operations and maintenance staff as we provide 24 hour availability of engineers to react to their concerns.
