Loadbank rental to load test for gas turbine manufacturer

Loadbank rental to load test for gas turbine manufacturer

After securing the order to supply three gas turbines for a new gas production platform, a major turbine manufacturer contacted Aggreko for a load test solution. Each turbine rated at 27 MW with a voltage of 11 kV 60Hz and a power factor of 0.9. This power is equivalent to supplying a small town of approximately 9,000 homes.

Loadbank Hire

Aggreko’s load bank rental solution gave the customer the ability to supply load from 0 to 100% in order to check various turbine parameters such as vibration, temperatures, fuel consumption and performance of ventilation.

Load Testing

Aggreko’s turnkey package gave the customer confidence that their equipment would function properly. In addition, the load bank test possibly prevented an expensive turbine failure after its installation of the gas platform at the seabed. Aggreko’s solution alleviated our customer’s concern over equipment efficiency allowing them to concentrate on other aspects of their project.
