RWG awarded contract for overhaul of three Siemens SGT-A20 AV (Industrial Avon) gas generators from Botas Petroleum Pipeline Company of Turkey

Botas Petroleum Pipeline Company has awarded RWG with a contract for overhaul of three Siemens Industrial Avon aero-derivative gas generators. This equipment, located at Kirklareli Compressor Station, provides mechanical drive capacity for natural gas compression, helping to maintain the reliability of Turkey’s gas transmission network.

Under this latest contract, RWG will complete major overhaul of each gas generator, including full disassembly, cleaning, inspection, overhaul and performance test in accordance with OEM criteria. In addition, RWG will restore unserviceable components within our in-house OEM-approved component repair facility, mitigating the requirement to install new replacement parts. The contract for overhaul will be completed during 2017, including field service support for installation and re-commissioning of each gas generator at the Kirklareli site.

Mark Forsyth, RWG’s industrial & marine business director said: “RWG and Botas have a well-established and successful maintenance partnership spanning many years. This latest award is most welcome and recognises the value derived from RWG’s experience and knowledge of the Botas fleet.”

Serpil Ozlem Duru, senior mechanical engineer at Botas, said: “Siemens aero-derivative gas generators are critical assets for Botas and subjected to a proactive maintenance strategy to maximise availability and reliability. This latest overhaul contract was awarded following a rigorous evaluation process with RWG selected based on OEM approvals, demonstrated project management skills and a track record of delivering value for our business.”

Botas has a fleet of five Industrial Avon gas generators in operation at Kirkareli Compressor Station, in addition to two SGT-A30 RB (Industrial RB211) gas generators located at Kirsehir Compressor Station in Turkey. RWG offers comprehensive maintenance support for all this equipment including, field repairs, gas generator overhauls, exchange, installation, re-commissioning and technical support.
