Emergency Turbine Repair

Astoria Energy

Project Overview

When the Astoria Energy plant experienced mechanical difficulties with one of the largest air-cooled steam turbine generators in the country, they turned to MVN to make emergency repairs as quickly as possible, minimizing plant downtime and lost power generation revenue.

Working 30 feet above the ground, we swiftly and safely rigged and removed an 85-ton rotor through the side of the turbine building.  Our team then performed needed repairs to the turbine stator, including a complete stator rewind. We then reinstalled the rotor upon its return from an off-site repair facility.

The emergency was handled efficiently, ahead of schedule, and on budget, diminishing the event’s impact on plant output.
