In-place machining of steam turbine rotor shaft in four days

Atlas Enerji — Turkey

In-place machining eliminates the logistical and cost- related challenges associated with repairing large equipment and machinery that is not easily moved. Goltens’ in-place machining capability is well known when it comes to repairing large diameter crankshafts but this technology is also successfully applied to repair journals of all sorts and dimensions around the world.

As such, machining a damaged 500mm diameter steam turbine generator shaft for Atlas Enerji in Turkey presented no unusual challenges. Goltens sent one of its in-situ managers to the site in Turkey to inspect the damaged shaft. Goltens produced a proposal that met the manufacturer’s specific technical process and the customer’s repair schedule and was contracted by CPI Engineering Co., Ltd to carry out the repairs.
