GE Frame 7 Gas Turbine
The Project Scope
Saudi Electric company had a major outage on a GE Frame 7B Gas Turbine. They needed a way to expedite outage and return the unit to service with maximum efficiency. They decided that a great way to do this would be to perform a laser alignment for the bearings and compressor sections of the Gas Turbine.
ACQUIP was able to mobilize to the job site when the alignment was ready to be performed. The turbine was checked for its pre-alignment condition and ACQUIP was able to start taking data immediately. ACQUIP was able to determine that there was no need to move any of the compressor sections. Only a small move was needed on the intermediate bearing in order to return the turbine to its optimal running condition.
