Dubai Petroleum has awarded RWG (a Siemens and Wood Group company) two maintenance contracts for the overhaul of its Siemens aero-derivative industrial gas generators. The scope of service under these contracts includes major overhauls of Industrial RB211 24 GT and Industrial Avon 1535-200 gas generators, requiring full disassembly, inspection and repair or replacement of unserviceable components.
Following reassembly, both gas generators are to be subject to a comprehensive performance test before returning to service offshore. Dubai Petroleum’s fleet of Siemens equipment includes Industrial Avon and Industrial RB211 gas generators used for gas compression and water flood applications. According to the company, the Industrial Avon 200 life extension upgrade, launched in 2007, delivers 8.9% more power, 4.4% better thermal efficiency, and extends mean times between overhauls (MTBO) from 30,000 hours to 36,000 hours.
RWG has service centers in Europe, North America and Asia for maintenance, repair and overhaul of Siemens industrial aero-derivative gas generators and power turbines.
