A fundamental philosophy of the new GE5 gas turbine
is simplicity of design, layout and procedures. This
affords the GE5 a position of market leadership in cost
and availability through innovative programs for
service and sparing, and through package assembly
and disassembly flexibility. Drawing on GE's undisputed
leadership in the design and manufacture of both
aero-derivative and heavy-duty machines, the GE5
represents a unique marriage of the best of both types
of engines.
This provides customers with the benefit of a variety of
cost-effective service programs (e.g., condition-based
maintenance, site-based or exchange engine programs)
and the ability to tailor the service offering to best suite
the customer's specific applications.
Annual borescope inspections are the basis of the
condition based maintenance program.
The inspection of the hot parts is carried out
approximately every two years. Major overhaul of the
gas turbine is required at around 50,000 fired hours,
and can be completed on site, or in a shop; effects of
downtime can be minimized through the use of an
exchange engine.
