We offer a comprehensive turbine generator outage planning program. This includes RFQ and outage specification documents, full outage scopes and outage action items, engineering risk assessments, TIL and Service Bulletin reviews, turbine NDE inspection and generator testing requirements, owner’s representative, and much more.
Additionally, our customers have saved millions of dollars by transitioning from a fixed schedule of major turbine generator outages to a customized schedule of smaller, component focused outages. In conjunction with TGA’s Turbine Generator Health Assessment program, the turbine generator outage interval extension analysis accounts for time-based risks associated with your unit to determine appropriate inspection intervals for each major turbine generator component. The economics of transitioning to time-based, shorter, and more frequent inspections are then evaluated and implemented to confirm the financial benefits of the new outage schedule. The result is a more appropriate turbine generator inspection regime with significant cost savings.
TGA has developed existing health assessment models for well over 100 steam turbines, gas turbines, aeroderivatives, and generator designs. In addition to our existing models, TGA integrates emergent issues and industry best practices from over 500 projects completed by our firm. The output of the assessment is a breakdown for each component of the detailed inspection and replacement history, weighted risk rating, known industry issues, and recommended outage timing and inspections. The color-coded component weighted risk matrix has proven to be a popular and effective tool for asset managers, owners, and operators worldwide in planning and prioritizing fleet or individual unit maintenance.
