Mechanical Analysis of a 25MW Turbine

Ampcontrol was engaged to analyse machine vibration on a 25MW turbine at an alternative power generation facility in QLD. A 25MW turbine at the facility was experiencing high levels of vibration after being returned to service from overhaul. Ampcontrol’s mechanical team attended the site and balanced the turbine. After balancing, the turbine ran with a very low level of vibration, significantly less that before overhaul.

Asset Management Solutions

Engaging Ampcontrol as your asset management partner means continuity of technical support from the OEM and a commitment to making sure the equipment runs as it is supposed to, doesn’t breakdown, and is statutory compliant. We know the operational value of what we design and manufacture which is why we are focused on optimising the equipment you have invested in and ensuring operational availability.

Power Quality Audit

Ampcontrol’s power quality (PQ) audit services offers customers a health check on the quality of their electrical network. A PQ audit can help determine the causes of electrical problems and provide a well-designed plan to correct them. Ampcontrol’s PQ audit services enable energy users to gain an insight into the stability of their electrical network in terms of power quality.
