Technical Seminar : Condition monitoring of turbine lubricating oils

Oil varnishing, oxidation and phosphate ester degradation are among the most threatening problems for both gas and steam turbines. Fortunately, there are ways to detect and remedy these issues efficiently and effectively. Discover the best available lubricating oil analysis techniques and contamination control procedures during the two-day seminar ‘Condition monitoring of turbine lubricating oils’ in Dubai. Applying these techniques will enable you to improve the reliability and availability of your equipment.

Training Course Combustion Technology on GE/SIEMENS/ALSTOM Gasturbines

On request of the ONG, Mr. Hannes Laget of Laborelec organized a training session on combustion in Gasturbines in Dubai. There was a 2 day session for GE machines and a 2 day session for Siemens/Alstom machines.

During the first day of each session the basics of combustion technology were addressed with special attention to the design philosophy of DLN combustion systems and the impact on emissions. Possible combustion issues such as combustion instabilities and flash back were explained. Also the fuel specifications, combustion chemistry and combustion dynamics were treated during that first day. The second day the focus was on the specific design and control philosophy of the GE, Siemens and Alstom machines. Special attention was given to why and how to follow up the tuning of the combustion system.

Facing the challenge of decentralized energy generation

How do new flexibility demands affect your power plant?

Coal-fired and combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant operators are increasingly taking measures to become more flexible. It is difficult to determine the effects of this on plant equipment and life time expectancy, but Laborelec is aiming to do just that.
