VBR Turbine Partners enables gas turbine owners and operators to implement strategic spare parts management as part of an overall maintenance strategy. Effective spare parts planning is all about having access to the required spare parts at the right time, the right price and in the right condition. Key determining factors for spare parts purchasing are the scheduled maintenance planning and the importance of individual parts. Solutions vary for respectively high-, medium- and non-critical parts.
Excellent spare parts supply
Most unscheduled stops and engine downtime can be related to malfunctioning of external parts of a gas turbine. To minimize loss of production fast access to OEM replacement parts is key. VBR Turbine Partners is a fully independent stock keeping maintenance provider for most critical LM2500(+), LM6000, TM2500(+), PGT25(+), Speedtronic and Woodward parts.

From VBR Turbine Parts to VBR Turbine Partners
Providing gas turbine spare parts is where it all started for VBR back in the year 2000. This is why our initial name was VBR Turbine Parts.
VBR saw GE LM gas turbine operators in Europe struggling to get their spare parts in time. Another problem were the inflated costs operators had to pay for essential spare parts to keep their production processes going.
Within a few years it became clear that a spare part doesn’t stand by itself. A turbine spare is part of a problem, a solution or a service. This made us think of better ways to support end users and operators.
