Modernization & upgrades for industrial gas turbines

Increased power, efficiency and availability

A gas turbine is a significant investment and as such  it’s unlikely you will want to make frequent replacements. Instead the most cost efficient means of continuing your operation is to extend the life of your current assets. Perhaps you want more power? Or maybe you want increased availability or efficiency? Siemens Modernizations and Upgrades can benefit you by enhancing your current fleet.

Modernization & Upgrades for industrial gas turbines

Extending the life of your gas turbine is an extremely cost efficient option.

Modernization and Upgrades provide the latest technology enhancements to all of our existing gas turbine fleet and enable you to extend the working life of your asset.
Utilizing the latest technical benefits derived from our extensive new turbine development programme, Siemens has produced a wide variety of modernizations and upgrades for existing installations.
Key areas include: 


Enhancements can be made through engine hardware replacement, or by secondary means, such as filtration efficiency improvements.


Reductions can be made to meet demands for cleaner energy through the company’s award winning DLE (Dry Low Emissions) combustion system, or more traditional techniques such as steam or water injection.


Enhancements can be made to lower cost of ownership through updated control and package systems.


Improvements can be made through upgraded hardware design to reduce fuel usage and improve environmental impact, resulting in lower operating costs.



The benefits of modernization and upgrades can include:

  • Access to the latest OEM proven technology for extended economic viability of the asset.
  • Reduced operating costs through efficiency gains. 
  • Increased power, with greater availability and efficiency. 
  • Reduced emissions with lower environmental impact.
