Case Study: Alstom Power Group
10 tonnes of specialist equipment creates time savings at Manapouri Power Station
CUSTOMER: Alstom Power Group New Zealand
When international energy company Alstom Power performed a survey of the existing stator frame on the second of the generators, during Meridian Energy’s overhaul of the seven 105 MW generators at Manapouri Power Station on the South Island, New Zealand. it was discovered that the support surface was not flat, and was more than 6 mm out of true. This would have made levelling the stator core difficult, with the need for shimming or placing packing under the core to correct any imbalance.
