COMMISSIONING & FIELD SUPPORT

Field work historically represents a large portion of the service provided by Macek Power to turbomachinery users.  At times, we spend more time in the field than in the office.  Macek Power travels all over the world, but international work is more commonly encountered in Latin America and the Caribbean.  Examples include installation of turbine-generator packages, outage support as owner's enigneer or technical director, inspections, steam path geometry measurement for re-rate studies, and fact gathering for failure analysis or insurance adjusters.  Whichever the reason, Macek Power is comfortable and experienced in the field under a wide variety of conditions.


EXAMPLE WORKS

PACKAGE INSTALLATION

Macek Power finds itself often in a supervisory (technical direction) role as the equipment owner uses its own or subcontracted millwright labor to install equipment packages.

COMISSIONING

Both general and machine specific experience benefit the end-user with Macek Power in a commissioning role.

STEAM PATH MEASUREMENT

A portable coordinate measurment machine (CMM) is used to measure the axial locations of rotor components in a shop as part of a re-rate project.

OUTAGE SUPPORT

Macek Power served as owner's engineer during this General Electric MS5001 gas turbine generator major inspection.

GAS PATH AUDIT

This job involved visual inspection of the gas path and review of measured running clearances.  Decisions regarding the installation of spare parts were made based upon the observations and corresponding cost/beneift analysis.

TECHNICAL DIRECTION

The Technical Director manages the millwright crew and other craft labor during the outage.  Macek Power complements this service via both formal educational background and hands on experience, successfully blending theory and practice.

FAILURE ANALYSIS

The failure of high-pressure blades that occurred in a 71 MW reheat turbine was investigated by Macek Power for an insurance adjuster.

EXPERT WITNESS

Macek Power has served in expert witness roles for legal firms, insurance adjusters, and end-users in matters pertaining to steam turbine maintenance work, steam turbine design, power plant design, and elements of power plant construction.
