- Fully independent perspective (especially important with engines under warranty)
- Dedicated improved work scope
- Very cost effective
- Tailor-made recommendations
- All recommendations & reports available 24/7
Hot section exchange
The LM2500(+) gas turbine is extremely reliable and long lasting. Nevertheless, it is inevitable that at a certain point the hot section is no longer adequate and needs to be overhauled or replaced. Shutting down the operation and shipping the engine to a OEM licensed overhaul depot is very costly and time consuming. VBR Turbine Partners provide an alternative with our on-site hot section inspection and exchange services. Read more about cost-effective solutions at our Hot section exchange on-site page.
Emission reduction retrofits
Owners and operators of older non-DLE LM2500(+) gas turbines in Europe will need to apply some form of emission reduction retrofit to comply with the NOx emission legislation of the European Industrial Emissions Directive (IED). For a LM2500(+) fitted with a properly dimensioned steam injection system, VBR provides a smart optimized steam injection retrofit as a cost-effective solution to comply with the IED.
Troubleshooting & problem solving
VBR Turbine Partners are a competence center for improving maintenance on General Electric LM2500(+) aero-derivative gas turbines. With our know-how, technical consultants and experienced engineers we can assess in a very effective way how to solve issues and disruptions with your engine as quickly as possible.
