GE Opens Turbine Center In Australia

By DJ Slater04 November 2020

GE opened its new Perth Aeroderivative Services Level 2 facility and tooling store to provide enhanced support to its GE LM6000, LM2500 and LMS100 aeroderivative gas turbine fleet installed in Australia.

The facility will allow GE to provide faster and more flexible maintenance offerings within the country, while also reducing repair cycle time and logistics costs for Australian aeroderivative power plant operators, GE said.

Additionally, the tooling store will serve the entire GE fleet within the Asia Pacific region to ensure tool availability for aero hot gas path section repairs and engine exchange tooling kits to improve outage completion time.

With the opening of the center, GE will already be servicing a fleet of more than 50 turbines for power plant operators such as Synergy, Rio Tinto, Transalta, ATCO and Alinta among others.
