Centrax Gas Turbines has been awarded MROC status by Siemens Energy, allowing Centrax to maintain, repair and overhaul the Siemens SGT-A05 gas turbine at their new MROC facility at the company’s headquarters in South West England.
Centrax, no stranger to the SGT-A05, has been packaging the engine for almost 40 years and until recently has only been able to carry out maintenance to the hot section. The move to MROC status will mean that Centrax’ fleet of operational engines can now be fully repaired and overhauled by one party, delivering a faster and more efficient turnaround for customers.
Kevin Steele, Director at Centrax, commented: “This is a great milestone in the Centrax/Siemens relationship which illustrates the excellent levels of trust and confidence held within our partnership that is vital to delivering Centrax’ fast and responsive support to customers”.
Speaking on behalf of Siemens Energy, Robert Bouwens, Director of Global Sales, SGT-A05, commented: “We are very proud to have Centrax as our partner. They have proven their capabilities through our almost 40-year partnership. Following a rigorous audit, Centrax has been granted our license as a certified MROC facility to service their packages. Centrax’ depth of experience and customer focus will ensure continued world class service and solutions for the SGT-A05”
The SGT-A05, formerly known as the 501K, is the core engine installed in over 340 Centrax CX501 generator sets. These units are situated at sites predominately in Europe, Russia and North Africa. With its 3.9 to 5.7 MW power range and high levels of operational flexibility, the SGT-A05 gas turbine is well suited to a range of applications including CHP, standby and oil and gas processes.
Centrax Gas Turbines specialises in the manufacture and service of gas turbine-powered generator sets ranging from 3MW to 15MW that use core engines from Siemens. The generator sets are used mainly for combined heat and power but also in base load, simple cycle and standby applications. It is a global company with a broad customer base throughout the world.
