GL Garrad Hassan offers a range of reliability engineering services for turbine technology; these range from the evaluation and ranking of conceptual designs through to preparation of design documentation; they also cover the entire turbine life cycle, from conceptual design through to operation.
GL Garrad Hassan offers services that include:
- Reliability analysis of the control and safety system.
A functional Failure Mode and Criticality Effect Analysis (FMECA) is conducted and the findings are reported in a certification-friendly report. This service can be extended to include recommendations for design optimization.
- Life cycle cost analysis.
Design concepts are analysed and reliability profiles defined in order to assess the impact on downtime and O&M costs for different site conditions. Life cycle cost analysis then provides important input for design optimisation and addresses the trade-off between revenue, O&M costs and capital cost.
- Reliability quick scan.
A review of the reliability and availability of a given design to provide design recommendations.
