Every engine in operation needs spare parts for scheduled and unscheduled engine stops. Strategic spare parts management can reduce the downtime of an engine after a scheduled or unscheduled stop and can reduce spare part purchasing & stocking costs in a sustainable way. VBR provides strategic spare parts management services to improve engine reliability, availability & maintainability. This will avoid unnecessary spare part purchasing & stocking costs and unnecessary engine outage times.

The benefits

Strategic spare parts management will reduce both the amount of the unscheduled engine stops and the total down time of an engine. This means:

Improved availability of the gas turbine
Improved reliability of the gas turbine
Improved revenue generating potential of the gas turbine

Cost reduction by effective purchasing decisions

Strategic spare parts management will also contribute to a significant cost reduction in the procurement of gas turbine spare parts by taking more effective purchasing decisions regarding the:

  • Purchasing of internal and external gas turbine spare parts;
