Gas Turbine Operation, Maintenance & Inspection


Maintenance costs and machine availability are two of the most significant concerns to a heavy-duty gas turbine industry. Therefore, a well-structured maintenance strategy helps to reduce the owner’s costs while increasing equipment availability should be established. Today, gas turbines have found wide acceptance in a variety of applications ranging from the petrochemical industry to the sophisticated aircraft industry.

This Gas Turbine Operations and Maintenance Training provides you with an opportunity to acquire a fundamental understanding of many aspects of stationary gas turbine engine performance and its important components applicable to its operation and maintenance. Participants will learn operating, troubleshooting and maintenance best practices for heavy-duty gas turbines. Additionally, it will cover types of inspections plus operating factors that influence maintenance schedules.


Gas Turbine Operations and Maintenance Training will be of most benefit to delegates currently working in the maintenance and operations departments of the power generation industry including Maintenance Engineers, Supervisors, Operators, Plant Engineers, Equipment Professionals and Supervisors. The course will, however also be very beneficial to those involved in the procurement of new and replacement equipment


Attendance to the Gas Turbine Operations and Maintenance Inspection training course will enable participants to:

  • Familiarize the participants with the fundamentals of gas turbines.
  • Understand functions and principles of operation of each of the major components and systems of the package.
  • Introduce standard operating procedures for the package, and describe basic maintenance, inspection and troubleshooting techniques.
  • Understand design parameters, performance, data sheets, alarm and set points, PIDs
  • The course explains how turbines works and the different types in common use.
  • How to control and operate Turbines efficiently and key troubleshooting techniques and information.
  • Operation and maintenance staff to build confidence level in start-up, follow-up, shut down and trouble shooting.
  • Gas Turbine Inspection and Overhaul Best Practices
  • Maintenance program and inspection procedures to improve trainees’ skills in executing activities in safe and right manner.
