IS IT TIME TO EVALUATE TO YOUR HEAT RECOVERY STEAM GENERATOR SYSTEM MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR STRATEGY?

Since the cogeneration boom in the 90’s, Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSGs) are common in plants ranging the industrial and power generation spectrum.[1] Once cutting-edge technology, the design and materials used in their construction are aging rapidly, and the plants where they operate are paying the price. Despite the spike in downtime, inefficiency, and other disruptive maintenance issues, many plants have been slow to adopt the latest maintenance and repair practices in HRSGs. This is likely because many who utilize HSRGs are unaware of the capabilities of a modern, properly equipped system.

Without a proactive maintenance and repair strategy, erosion caused by high temperature conditions and high velocity gas turbulence can result in an unplanned outage, prolonged downtime and loss in the power supply. Adding to the dilemma, finding a partner with a broad spectrum of HRSG experience, from multi-craft, general maintenance, construction and repairs to highly engineered, solution-specific mechanical integrity solutions, can pose a significant and time consuming challenge.
