|Major Overhaul and Upgrade
Pelican Point Power Station, located near Adelaide, requested the overhaul of unit GT11 to occur during September 2011. This unit is an Alstom 13E2 gas turbine of 160MW capacity.
The scope of work was to perform a major (“C”) inspection of the unit, and also to perform a “MXL” upgrade involving partial re-blade of the turbine. The generator also had a major inspection including removal of retaining rings.
For this project, PPI worked with our partner KPS to provide the site labour force for the overhaul. Alstom (as OEM) was also present on site during the overhaul in a technical supervision role.
This was the first time a non-OEM company was involved in he overhaul of on of these units.
The overhaul was completed on schedule and successfully returned to service.
