Gulf Turbo Services (GTS) has successfully managed an emergency Breakdown on a gas turbine for a local Fertilizer Company. This company was a long standing Customer, who traditionally was 100% OEM focused for replacement parts and services.
In this time-pressurised breakdown situation, our Customer was open to exploring parts and services beyond the OEM. Although an existing Customer for GTS, we had never worked on this particular piece of equipment for this Customer before.
GTS assisted with 24 hour on-site shift work by conducting a full inspection of the power turbine rotor, an exceptionally old piece of equipment, to understand what the breakdown involved. With good used parts salvaged from a second previously retired unit, we were able to successfully repair one working unit in our workshop utilising used, but extensively tested buckets and new rivets supplied by our Customer.
