Steam turbines are often in operation for more than 30 years in various industrial processes, in the oil & gas industry and in the power generation sector.
Over the past few decades, Siemens has taken over several well-known suppliers in the industrial steam turbine segment, and integrated their products into its own portfolio. Siemens now offers OEM services for its own designs, as well as for many turbines originally manufactured by the companies it has acquired.
Our aim is to help you continue to operate your turbine units profitably within today’s performance-oriented environment, giving you the full benefit of our extensive experience and wide range of technologically diverse steam turbine fleets.
Customers like you – whether in the power generation sector or other markets – want your production systems to operate economically, reliably, and to high quality standards. Siemens industrial steam turbines are a key component of your production processes.
A turbine’s performance can deteriorate over its service lifetime as a result of operational influences. Requirements can change, too, as a result of, for example, fluctuations in power demand, or the need to start up and shut down more quickly and more frequently.
To enable you to utilize your turbine to its full potential, Siemens offers a range of services based on our extensive know-how, future-oriented and sustainable innovations, and decades of experience as a globally active OEM service provider.
Because no two turbines are identical, we offer services that are custom-tailored to meet your specific needs, from supply of OEM spares to regular turbine inspections and overhauls, right through to complex upgrading and backfitting solutions.
Siemens’ worldwide service network is there for you 24 hours a day. Our globally distributed Competence Centers can respond quickly and effectively to put together service packages to meet your needs
One of our key service goals is to minimize your system downtime and resulting productivity losses. However, repairs and service activities are sometimes necessary to ensure that your systems continue to operate smoothly.
With this in mind, Siemens offers a comprehensive portfolio of maintenance and service solutions, encompassing everything from installation and commissioning of your turbine by our field service and commissioning specialists, through scheduled maintenance and repairs on site or at one of our many service centers worldwide, to the supply of spare parts.
We work closely with you to anticipate potentially upcoming maintenance work, and develop options for implementing this work that will minimize your costs and downtime.
We are a partner you can rely on, whether you just need a component replaced or a complete turbine overhaul. Our aim is to carry out all maintenance activities rapidly, effectively and precisely, so that your productivity is increased, not reduced.
By continuously investing in new technologies and optimizing existing processes, we can help you strengthen your position on the global marketplace.
Industrial steam turbines offer plenty of scope for reducing your costs and boosting the capacity of your plant. If modifications to processes or other requirements have led to a change in original design specifications, it may be worth upgrading your steam turbine to bring it in line with the new conditions. This is particularly true in cases where an upgrade enables you not only to optimize your process equipment but also to extend your steam turbine's service life.
Siemens takes your requirements into account so that you get a steam turbine that is specifically tailored to your needs.
Reducing lengthy outages, or even avoiding them altogether, is a key priority when planning a turbine upgrade.
A “footprint” turbine is a replacement turbine which does not require any significant modifications to be made to the existing baseframe or foundation. The existing oil system, gearbox and driven machine (generator, compressor, etc.) can also continue to be used with no, or only minor, modifications. If necessary, they can be adapted to the new operating parameters.
Remote Diagnostic Services (RDS) provide professional support for your personnel, to help you minimize operating and maintenance costs while maximizing plant availability.
RDS is available for individual industrial steam turbines as well as for complete drive trains including gearbox and generator or compressor.
Depending on contractual arrangements, Siemens can provide a highly reliable online troubleshooting and consulting service via its company-wide operating platform, including real-time operator intervention if required (subject to access being authorized by the customer).
Siemens offers modular remote service packages ranging from detailed operating reports and 24-hour support, through expert diagnostics, to thermodynamic and rotor-dynamics analyses of your turbines.
RDS is based on Siemens’ many decades of experience as an OEM servicing its own fleet of turbines, and is available as part of a long-term program or within the scope of a standalone support contract.
