Failure Investigation and Root Cause Analysis (RCA) of a Gas Turbine

ETD recently completed a project on Failure Investigation and Root Cause Analysis (RCA) of a Gas Turbine for a Middle Eastern Power Plant.

The client urgently decided to replace the damaged GT compressor parts. During disassembly of the GT compressor casing, further, similar damage was observed at other compressor rotor stages and to the stator vanes.

ETD were requested to provide a quotation to perform complete Failure Investigation and Root Cause Analysis (RCA) for the above damaged parts, which have been removed from a Gas Turbine.

The scope of the work carried out included:

  • Applying appropriate tools and methodologies to determine the root cause of the failures/ damages.
  • Detailed analysis and discussion of the failure investigation & RCA findings.
  • Conclusions and recommendations based on the findings of the above investigation.
  • A report of the RCA study results to include recommendations for any mitigating actions to be taken by the plant operator for continued operation of their GTs.
