Webinar | Webinar | How to reduce the risk of steam turbine cracking due to flexible operation?

Steam turbines are subject to accelerated ageing due to flexible operation imposed by the energy transition. There have even been an increasing number of events involving rotor cracking.

Join us for this 1-hour webinar Online event on Tuesday 14th November – 11 AM


Our expert Frits Petit will guide you through the subject:

  • What mechanisms are causing the damage and what is the risk and potential impact?
  • Frits will elaborate on the comprehensive screening that was made of the entire ENGIE fleet in Europe, which clearly surfaced the vulnerabilities of a wide variety of installations of different OEMs.
  • He’ll outline Laborelec’s risk screening service as well as the type of actions that can be taken to reduce the risk.
