GE LM gas turbine maintenance

Obsolete control systems are a serious constraint for reliable gas turbine operation. To replace obsolete and mature control systems VBR provides retrofits with Woodward or Allen-Bradley plc control systems.

A control system retrofit or (re)commissioning will improve gas turbine reliability, availability, performance & maintainability and will reduce gas turbine operation & maintenance costs.

Control system issues?

VBR provides cost-effective solutions

Woodward and Allen-Bradley

Obsolete control systems are a serious constraint for reliable gas turbine operation. To replace obsolete and mature control systems VBR provides retrofits with Woodward or Allen-Bradley plc control systems. A gas turbine control system retrofit provides owners and operators of existing gas turbines with a higher reliability, availability, performance and maintainability.

The Allen Bradley plc control system can also be acquired as a cost effective alternative for an OEM control system.

VBR provides all necessary hardware, software, installation & commissioning. A well-prepared control system retrofit can be performed on-site in 14 consecutive working days (without interruption). Our highly qualified controls engineers with their extensive knowledge and experience with regard to the required configuration, commissioning and testing will ensure an optimal operation of the gas turbine. 

Human machine Interfaces (HMIs)

When VBR implements gas turbine control system retrofits we prefer to include so-called High Performance HMIs (Human Machine Interfaces) with advanced visualization options. We also can provide these new generation HMIs for your existing OEM control systems.

Benefits

Retrofitting older or obsolete control systems brings a number of advantages:

  • prevent control system failures
  • no dependency on the availability of obsolete parts
  • optimize reliability, availability, performance & maintainability
  • better interfaces with more data and clear visualizations
  • enhanced possibilities for RAPID remote maintenance support.

A  well-performed gas turbine control system retrofit will reduce gas turbine operation & maintenance costs immediately and will pay itself back in only a few years.
