September – 5th
Our retrofit department are currently working on building two control stands which will be replacing old mechanical governors, our customer is updating equipment to enhance the efficiency of the running of the turbine. On completion of these two large units they will be shipped to an oil refinery in Africa.
We have previously carried out a similar project for a waste management company. Go to the case study
for more information and to see pictures of the double Peak 150 stand we designed and built.
Our service engineer Jon will be visiting the site of the UK’s longest established district heating company to install and commission two Woodward EG10P Governors and a solenoid stop valve and also to replace corroded wiring looms on their extraction steam turbine. Jon will be reconfiguring a Woodward 505E Control and setting up all equipment to customers specifications.
This month our overhaul department including technicians and test engineers have been busy overhauling a number of Woodward Governors that have been received from a UK based oil refinery.
The large quantity of critical plant operation units have all been stripped, inspected with all worn and damaged parts replaced. The units were then rebuilt and sprayed and are now currently in the process of being tested and set to specification to meet the customer's criteria.
Our Governor Technician Chris has also been working on a main engine governor type PGA-EG, which has now been safely delivered back on board a premier cruise liner the MS Braemar.
