Solar Turbines provides overhaul support for its entire gas turbine product line. We have over 65 years of experience and have performed more than 30,000 overhauls. Solar offers a variety of overhaul solutions based on your needs. As opposed to using a third party, we maintain exclusive access to engineering specifications and implement the latest original equipment manufacturer (OEM) design improvements in each overhaul.
You want your turbomachinery to run reliably over the years to keep your business operating efficiently. Learn more about Solar’s overhaul and engine exchange solutions here.
More Flexibility with Engine Exchanges
Solar delivers more than 800 exchange engines from our extensive fleet every year and provides the support needed to reliably extend the life of your equipment. Approximately 80% of Solar customers select this program because their equipment is back in operation in as little as two days. An engine exchange consists of replacing your current engine with a fully renewed engine that is rigorously tested and certified to operate under current OEM standards.
Solar understands that unplanned events happen. Our fleet of engines, parts and tools strategically stored around the world, will help you go back to operation quickly.
Customized Upgrade Solutions
A power uprate or a SoLoNOx™ upgrade of your Solar turbomachinery can enhance not only its performance, reliability and maintainability, but improve its durability, safety and environmental compliance. It all adds up to higher production and more dollars to your bottom line.
Upgrading your existing equipment can be less costly than purchasing an additional unit. You can optimize your productivity while remaining within the same physical footprint.
Your equipment can be economically upgraded at the time of overhaul using Solar’s exchange program. Instead of waiting weeks to have your original turbine upgraded, an exchange unit can be provided at a higher power rating or with a SoLoNOx conversion to minimize your downtime. Primary benefits include:
- Machinery efficiency
- Life extension
- Optimize productivity
- Reliability enhancement
- Time savings
- Lower costs
Your equipment is brought to Solar’s factories where we perform all repairs required to re-establish mechanical integrity.
Our factory trained field repair specialists are dedicated to getting your equipment up and running at your site per your schedule.
