During the most recent outage season, PSG was contracted to perform the in-place restoration of stationary blades on an 800MW Steam Turbine for a large power producer in the United States. The customer was looking for a solution where the blades could be restored without completely disassembling the unit and sending the components to a shop – enabling them to save valuable generation time and significant expense. Our Field Machining Division mobilized our specialized technicians and equipment and began the detailed process of restoring the blades, ultimately returning them to operating specifications.
The customer was extremely pleased with the outcome of the project and commented on the high-quality craftsmanship displayed by our technicians. This is another example of the complicated turbine repairs we can perform on-site, and a testament to the quality of our execution personnel.
