Two out of three GE LM2500+ dual fuel gasturbine-generators on board, that are critical for supplying electrical power, failed to start on gas fuel. In addition they encountered load limitations when running on diesel fuel.
Telic Engineering received the scope to troubleshoot and resolve the start-up issues, and load limitation. Extensive troubleshooting resulted in several findings and actions were taken to resolve these or recommendations were given. Achieved to fix the start-up issues and load limitation such that both gasturbine-generators can be started reliable again and operate without load limitation. Additionally identified the root cause for these issues, and provided a detailed service report.
