62MW Turbine, Main Inlet Valves and Balance of Plant Upgrade.
AGL engaged MTL to provide engineering and contract support for the upgrade of the West Kiewa turbines, replacement MIV’s and balance of plant upgrades. The turbine upgrade includes replacing the runner, head cover, bearing and seal, guide vanes, servo motors, links and levers, and governor.
MTL’s role included developing the project scope and delivery strategy, technical specification and tender document preparation, technical review of contractor’s designs, design reviews, and equipment inspection.
West Kiewa provides some unique challenges for upgrade projects. With restricted underground access, the logistics and planning of the work becomes a key element of the project management.
