GE Safely Delivers Gas Turbine Modernization at Tirreno Power's Power Plant in Italy
May 28, 2020
  • GE safely completed the modernization of a GE 9F.03 gas turbine at Tirreno Power's 1,200-megawatt Torrevaldaliga Sud Power Plant amidst pandemic
  • With COVID-19 restrictions rapidly changing, GE quickly implemented additional safety protocols and procedures to ensure employee safety and project execution

BADEN, SWITZERLAND - May 28, 2020- GE (NYSE: GE) today announced the safe and successful completion of the installation of a new rotor and a compressor upgrade on a GE 9F.03 gas turbine at Tirreno Power's 1,200-megawatt (MW) Torrevaldaliga Sud Power Plant, located near Rome. The modernization project started in late February with the goal to enhance the reliability and availability of the equipment, which provides power to the Italian grid. In the following weeks, as the pandemic spread and COVID-19 protective measures were put in place, GE, in alignment with Tirreno Power, quickly implemented additional safety protocols and procedures to ensure the timely and safe completion of the outage.

'With work already underway, it was crucial that GE complete the turbine modernization to restore the availability of our plant, which produces the equivalent of electricity consumed in average by 3 million homes,' said Alessandro Gaglione, Tirreno Power Head of Power Generation. 'Relying on outstanding technical skills of the staff involved in this critical operation, we decided to confirm the work plan in order to make our plant promptly available for the national grid to help secure the energy supply in the country in the emergency period.'

The modernization consisted of the installation of a new rotor and of an enhanced compressor system to increase the robustness and durability of the turbine. The engineering enhancements reduce the impact of degradation that naturally occurs with time on the rotor components and improves their lifespan. This, in turn, reduces the risk of unplanned downtime and emergent maintenance.

Engineers from GE and FieldCore, the field services execution team owned by GE, worked together and in close cooperation with Tirreno Power experts to quickly implement an array of safety measures including: more frequent disinfections at the site, physical distancing including in site cafeterias and locker rooms, and the use of personal protective equipment such as masks and gloves. Additionally, enhanced measures included the creation of a joint GE - FieldCore COVID-19 taskforce with the mission to monitor and address the rapidly evolving situation and ensure compliance with local, national and company regulations.

'The 9F.03 gas turbine upgrade was critical to increase the current performance and reliability of Tirreno Power's plant,' said Steven Miller, Service Leader for Europe at GE Gas Power. 'During these unprecedented times when access to reliable electricity is more important than ever, we are committed to providing our customers with the exceptional support and services they have come to rely on while leading with safety. Despite the daily challenges caused by the pandemic and longer-than-expected isolation from family and loved ones, our 30-strong team worked day and night to complete the outage, safely.'

Throughout Italy, GE-built technologies generate over one-third of the country's electricity and are supporting by service and maintenance teams from the company.
