RWG secures multi-engine Industrial Avon and SGT-A30 RB (Industrial RB211) maintenance awards from PTT Public Company Limited of Thailand (PPT)
PTT has awarded RWG with multiple contracts for maintenance of Siemens aero-derivative gas generators. In total these latest awards encompass major overhaul of three Industrial RB211 GT DLE units and three Industrial Avon 200 gas generators in service at PTT’s five gas separation plants in Rayong Province, Thailand.
All work on these contracts, valued at approximately £8MM, will be undertaken at RWG’s Aberdeen, UK service centre. The scope of work includes engine disassembly, detailed inspection, component repair, reassembly and performance test of each gas generator prior to return to customer. Overhaul of both Industrial RB211 and Industrial Avon engines has already commenced and is scheduled for completion during 2015.
“PTT operates the very latest technology Siemens aero-derivative gas generators, relying on this equipment for mechanical drive and power generation duty at PTT’s gas separation plants. It is essential this equipment is reliable and efficient, so that we can maintain production and manage our operating costs effectively. RWG’s proposal was successful because it addressed both criteria and they have a strong track record of delivering on commitments”, stated Charcrie Buranakanonda – Senior Executive Vice President, Gas Business Unit of PTT.
Mark Forsyth, RWG’s Industrial & Marine Business Director commented, “RWG has a long association with PTT, having supported their Siemens equipment since it was first commissioned. By combining RWG’s expertise in maintenance with an understanding of our customer’s business, we’re able to tailor our service solution to better align with PTT’s operational goals. From the outset we recognised the importance placed by PTT on equipment reliability and management of life cycle costs, so have worked closely with them in order to meet this objective.”
RWG provides maintenance support for an additional gas separation plant (GSP) located at Amphur Khanom in Nakhon Sri Thammarat Province. PTT’s GSP unit four operates Siemens Industrial 501 gas generators and recently contracted with RWG for overhaul of a single Industrial 501KC5 machine, complete with Dresser-Rand GT22 power turbine. This work scope was completed at RWG’s Texas, USA facility, enabling
PTT to consolidate support for Siemens equipment with a single service provider.
