TMS carried out a major overhaul on our long standing customers Alstom TM2 units. Unfortunately the integral shrouding on the LP turbine was found to be cracked and so TMS reverse engineered replacement blades, utilising laser scanning technology, and fitted them with just a few weeks extension to the original outage plan. The units were successfully commissioned and went on to break the weekly generation record shortly after commissioning. hashtag#turbine hashtag#generation hashtag#blading
TMS have set up several Long Term Service Agreements with our customers who are operating Biomass and Waste to Energy plants. One such biomass fired CHP plant with a TGM Kanis turbine were seeking to improve upon response times and costs associated with OEM support and so when the warranty period expired they went to tender for the scheduled minor overhaul. TMS performed well during this outage, carrying out emergent works on a breakdown basis and in half of the OEM’s quoted lead time. As a direct result of our performance TMS were asked to supply a proposal for a five year LTSA which was drafted to meet the customers requirements and tailored as requested. TMS have now been supporting the customer for nearly 3 years, supplying failure analysis investigation, control system upgrades and remote monitoring and analysis, spare parts supply, 24 hour technical support and planned and unplanned service works. This has enabled the customer to pro-actively maintain the set to their requirements and not those dictated by an OEM.
