Equate Turnaround – Appreciation Certificate

AST Turbo was called out to support a major turnaround on a petrochemical site in Kuwait in November 2014. A tight schedule, complex interaction between multiple contractors and parallel tasks – a characteristic of overhaul jobs for multiple critical rotating equipment – needed close supervision and coordination to ensure quality at all times.

The QA/QC role assumed by the AST Turbo Field Service Representative included technical quality assurance & control for tasks such as supervision, coordination & logistics as well as pro-active implementation of cost-reduction measures and commissioning support, amongst others. The expertise, commitment and pro-active attitude of the AST representative during the turnaround was well appreciated by the customer who thanked us with a letter of appreciation.

Turbine Generator Train Relocation completed

A 7-MW ABB Steam Turine Generator set was successfully relocated from Holland to Portugal. The relocation project involved many important steps that were crucial for a reliable and long-term operation. The main challenge faced included the lack of equipment technical documentation, therefore, a well-experienced supervision was required. AST Turbo was called to provide technical direction and supervision during the installation and commissioning of the unit to ensure that the equipment was mounted following manufacturer’s specifications and quality standards. The project was completed on time and the unit is since producing as per original design.
