Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has given an order worth Rs 366 crore to Siemens Limited for supplying material for overhauling of 18 Power Turbines through Zero Hour Overhaul and Time Continued Overhaul.
This is the first time the Zero Hour Overhauling will be done in India.
ONGC Power Turbines are undergoing a Time Continued Overhaul where after overhauling the Power Turbines can run for another 50,000 hours before the next overhaul.
With this new concept of Zero Hour Overhaul, the Power Turbine will perform almost as new – capable of a safe run of another 100,000 hours before the next overhaul. This will help in reducing downtime and increase in productivity because of elimination of at least one intermediate overhaul.
