Innovatief onderhoud Electrawinds energiecentrale

Electrawinds and RDA Shiptech work together on innovative maintenance of the MAN 18V48/60B engine that is used to produce green electrical power in the Electrawinds power plant in Ostend. This 17.7 MW rated installation runs on organic waste oils and fats. Through RVI inspections using high-end GE borescopes, a detailed view of the cylinder liners, the inlet and exhaust valves, the pistons, the combustion chambers and the turbocharger is obtained. Because these inspections replace the traditional 6.000 running hours inspection, this procedure results in considerable savings on maintenance costs while the quality of condition monitoring is improved.
