Robotic inspection for onsite generator diagnostics

In-situ condition analysis of your 2-pole generators - without rotor removal

Generators are usually in use for many years. During operation, aging and grid effects may lead to severe damages on vital components such as rotor or stator.

Prolonged outages due to unpredicted repairs can be avoided with our advanced robotic in-situ inspection and condition analysis.

Depending on the condition of the generator, a robot inspection replaces a time-consuming main inspection.

Image is illustrative

Up to 90 % cost reduction

if main inspection can be replaced with a robotic inspection (depending on condition and installation situation of the generator)

Shorter outage

by eliminating the need of rotor removal (up to 80% saved outage time)

Extended indication detection capabilities

reducing the forced outage risk by tracking of known defects, even during minor inspections

Analysis and recommendations

assessing the generator condition and shift necessary repair measures to planned outages with an optimized schedule

Our robotic inspection covers the same scope as a major inspection but eliminates the need to pull out the rotor and reducing disassembly to a minimum.*

Your benefits

Global network

Gain access to a global network and a continuously improved, cutting-edge service portfolio

Experienced global team

Profit from an experienced global team servicing air-cooled generators in industrial applications

Planned maintenance schedules and downtime

Optimize planned maintenance schedules and downtime of your generator assets

Our footprint approach offers many advantages:

Short outage times

because the design is tailored to the specific plant

Increased generator rating

can be achieved, especially if uprating of the entire turbine-generator set is in planning

Different types of configuration

for cooling, as well as on a structural level are possible, e.g. changeover to a closed-cycle ventilation system

Greater availability and dependability

thanks to newer components

Extended service life

Lower operational cost

thanks to reduction of wear parts (stock keeping), and the elimination of the excitation unit bearings
