Siemens Ltd has announced that it has received an order worth approximately Rs 366 crore from Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC). The order includes supply of material for overhauling of 18 power turbines through zero-hour overhaul and time-continued overhaul.
The zero hour overhauling will be first of its kind in India and involves the overhaul of power turbines to zero hour status. ONGC´s power turbines are undergoing a time-continued overhaul. Under this process, after overhauling, the power turbines can run for another 50,000 hours before the next overhaul.
Under zero hour overhaul, a power turbine will perform almost as new. It will be capable of a safe run of another 100,000 hours before the next overhaul, which will help in reducing downtime and increase productivity.
