Botas Petroleum Pipeline Company has awarded RWG a contract to overhaul three Siemens Industrial Avon aero-derivative gas generators. This equipment, located at the Kirklareli Compressor Station, provides mechanical drive capacity for natural gas compression, helping to maintain the reliability of Turkey’s gas transmission network.
Under the terms of the contract, RWG will complete major overhaul of each gas generator, including full disassembly, cleaning, inspection, overhaul and performance test in accordance with OEM criteria. In addition, RWG will restore unserviceable components within the company’s in-house OEM-approved component repair facility, mitigating the requirement to install new replacement parts. The scope of work will be completed during 2017, including field service support for installation and re-commissioning of each gas generator at the Kirklareli site.
“Siemens aero-derivative gas generators are critical assets for Botas and subjected to a proactive maintenance strategy to maximise availability and reliability,” Serpil Ozlem Duru, senior mechanical engineer at Botas, said. “This latest overhaul contract was awarded following a rigorous evaluation process with RWG selected based on OEM approvals, demonstrated project management skills and a track record of delivering value for our business.”
