Flying large rotors in for fast repair

Flying large rotors in for fast repair
A steam turbine rotor has been airfreighted to Sulzer’s service centre for fast repair, as 150MW generators provide power for around 100’000 homes so minimising down-time is essential to keeping the lights on for the local population. For one power plant in the Philippines, the swift repair of a steam turbine rotor was essential, so it was airfreighted using one of the world’s largest cargo planes, to Sulzer’s service centre in Indonesia, where the repairs were completed within eight weeks.
