Engine Repair Facility

ENGINE REPAIR FACILITY

Centrax Gas Turbines has over 50 years’ experience providing gas turbine generator service and maintenance. Our Centrax Engine Repair facility was established in 1995 to enable in-house repairs and turbine overhauls to be conducted on the Siemens 501-K gas turbine.

Customers purchasing 501-K-powered generator sets became focused on the through-life costs and the requirement for Comprehensive Maintenance Contracts (CMC’s). Building the dedicated Centrax Engine Repair facility at our Newton Abbot plant has enabled us to keep maintenance costs to a minimum, whilst ensuring the quality of this maintenance remained at the high level of quality our customers expect from us.

PRODUCT EXPERTISE

Our experts have a wealth of technical knowledge to support the range of Siemens 501-K gas turbine engines. In addition as a service to the Customer, Centrax will monitor the running of the engine following the return to service, to ensure maximum turbine performance and efficiency.

As an experienced Siemens 501-K engine repairer, Centrax can offer advice and support at all stages of the engine repair/overhaul process:

  • The Centrax Engine Repair facility provides support to our contracted fleet, our spare engine-owned fleet and also external customers requiring the facilities we have to support their engines
  • We are able to test all 501-K derivative engines in one of our dedicated engine test facilities in Newton Abbot including DLE emissions tests where required
  • Centrax continues to work closely with Siemens in the research and further development of the 501-K engine derivatives in particular the 501-KB7S DLE model
  • In-house strip-down, build and re-assembly
  • Centrax provides new Siemens OEM parts

Centrax supplies and builds the 501-K boost module for Siemens which is also fitted to the 501-KB7 and 501-KB7S derivatives; over 300 boost modules have now been assembled at Centrax.
