Outage Planning  Technical Direction  Turnkey Labor

Outage Planning 

Power plant professionals can manage their tasks, lower outage times, and increase their online time with effective planning. Our workers focus on reviewing the available objectives, performance, and reliability of the unit, and plan the outage schedule for Turbine and Power Plant Generator Services. With Maintenance Advanced Planning Services (MAPS), we compile historical data, fleet data, and OEM recommendations in a final report for the client. 

Technical Direction 

Our project managers and technical directors are experienced professionals who specialize in the many unique and complex areas of turbine-generator engineering.  Many of our TDs have a broad background of experience with many OEM equipment types, enabling them to effectively address even the most complex technical challenges.

Turnkey Labor 

We offer skilled turbine-generator mechanics, supervisors, tools, equipment, and other required services for turnkey installation, maintenance, and overhaul of the Power Plant Generator and turbines. 

Balancing & Vibration Analysis

Our advanced High-Speed Balance Facility based in St. Louis was designed with both vacuum capability and the ability to excite generator rotors at high speed, allowing the testing and balancing of both turbine and Power Plant Generator rotors.  High-speed balancing has effectively shown to minimize any testing stresses during repairs, ensuring effective usage when returned to operation.

Generator Testing and Inspections 

Our generator specialists perform a comprehensive series of inspections and tests on all stator and field components. Machines are subjected to both electrical tests and visual inspections. The goal of our Generator Specialist is to compile the results from a series of applicable tests that collectively help you make decisions about the necessity and priority of repairs. 

Robotic Generator In-Situ Inspection 

Our generator in-situ inspection robot (called Air Gap-Bot) fully inspects the system without removing the generator field. Leading to shorter outage duration and reduced inspection cost.

It can perform a visual inspection, a stator wedge tightness assessment, and an Electromagnetic Core Imperfection Detection (ELCID) in order to find possible faults, shorts, material deterioration, and more.

Control and Excitation Field Engineering, Consulting & Training

We have OEM experienced field engineers which provide installation, technical support, advanced troubleshooting, training, and consulting services for gas and steam turbine controls, generator excitation, and auxiliary systems.  

Generator Excitation Retrofits 

In order to enhance the voltage protection and control of the generator, we offer multiple options for turnkey replacement in generator excitation systems. Also, we give customized solutions for brushless, static, and multiple other legacy OEM configurations. 

Operating Surveillance Program 

Our power plant generator experts conduct this program to find the leaks and various issues in generators. This system can work even when the unit is in operation, and usually takes 2-3 days to complete, based on unit complexity and size. 

Turbine System Enhancements 

Our experts conduct targeted improvement in generator system components in order to improve system performance. They offer premium upgrades in generator hydrogen systems, turbine trip manifolds, valve actuators, Overspeed systems, and hydraulic systems.

Turbine Foundation Monitoring 

We combine optical and laser measurements to gauge the custom monuments that are installed in the turbine foundation.
