Siemens SGT6 2000 series Gas Turbine review
Saudi Arabia has been on the top of the list of power consumption and the industry is worth USD 500 Billion the major chunk of the market is shared by GE Alstom and Siemens
After the merger of the GE – Alstom the next big player in the market is Siemens and its been doing really well and their latest installation in Hail Siemens-SGT6 2000 E Since 2010 overcoming many issues what the Saudi Electricity Company was facing with GE and Other turbines w.r.t Temperature, Emission and Crude Oil Consumption,…
Hence Techstorey wanted to take a dig into it and review the these GT…….
Operation Type Both Simple/Single cycle and Combined cycle
Capacity 4 MW – 400 MW @ both 50 and 60 hertz
So far, then there has been a very positive response from the client in the kingdom. This time the rotor shaft and the internal tie is connected based on the Hirth Serration this will enable for rapid internal cooling to facilitate cold start and hot restart as well.
This type of connection/contact (Hirth Serration) the dismantling/destacking of the rotor can be done with great ease.
wear and tear on the blades is common on the GT due to impurities in the crude oil and the dusty environment Siemens has come up with the new 3D and the Si3D design concept on the blades earlier the replacement of the blade was a tedious and a cost impacting job which consumed a lot of the downtime this concept has help enable to change the rotor blades on site without removing from the main shaft.
The combustion chambers of the turbine works both on HFO and as well LFO or Low callorific gases the chamber is dual chambers with ceramic tiles cut short into smaller pieces for easy replacement.
The main bearing of the system is given momentary protection to reduce wear and tear with (HCO )hydraulic Clearence optimized
This is a great article for anyone who wishes to know about this subject. Splendid writing sir and very simply written to make it easy for us to understand. Thank you and look forward to the next
