Download Catalog

The turbine has multiple levels of redundancy within its system, allowing continued operation even if some faults occur. A comprehensive condition monitoring system allows the prediction of failure and planned maintenance as necessary. The turbine is designed for a 25-year life, with three services in that period, at 6¼ year intervals. Total mass of the unit is 150 tonne in air, placing it within the capacity of more readily available DP (dynamically positioned) construction vessels for installation and retrieval.
