The plan provides repair, overhaul, replacement and/or exchange of parts including Life Limited parts, Time Between Overhaul
parts and parts for Mandatory technical bulletin application.
Based on the calculations below, the total number of hours for each turbocompressor unit per year was reduced from 7,008 to 5,694 and, therefore, the time between overhauls
could be extended.
We are talking to a number of operators who are very much interested in stretching out the time between overhauls
, if it can be done safely and with the confidence that the equipment will remain reliable," Logan continued.
The new product range has a longer mean time between overhauls
(MTBO) 15000h or 5 years than competing installations, with an option for a further extended warranty period.
All products Completing engine overhauls must have not less than a given time between overhauls
Application of new design solutions enabled to increase plant s capacity and what is more important, to increase time between overhauls
of main equipment.
The AW169 is designed with inherent ease of maintenance, for reliable, intensive utilisation in the most demanding conditions with high time between overhauls
(TBO) and minimal life-limited parts.
The time between overhauls
for all types of turbogenerators will be extended from four to six years.
Monitoring and detailed maintenance planning for the vessels is expected to increase the time between overhauls
, thereby maximising vessel availability besides saving fuel and reducing emissions.
