After 10 years of continuous production, an ABB turbine, in a cogeneration configuration, was entrusted to Energetic to carry out a major overhaul. During the preparation a no stop inspection was carried out. As a result, it was decided to execute on the generator only di-electrically measurement and to pay special attention to the efficiency loss the turbine had to deal with.
In order to guarantee delivery of nitrogen and oxygen to their main customer, a North Italian air separation plant required a back-up compressor. Investing in a new system however would mean financial haemorrhage. Luckily, they still owned a totally obsolete GHH Borsig main air compressor and KRUPP DSU 32X Planetarium gearbox. Energetic gave this installation a new lease of life, at a fraction of the cost of a new system.

During overhauls, the steam control valves and emergency steam valve or stop valve are also inspected. Not only because of possible leaks of steam or oil side, but also to ensure the proper functioning of the valves.
