Gas Turbine Overhauling – Reality and Achievement


Gas Turbine Overhauling – Reality and Achievement

During the past eight years, despite the country’s difficult economic conditions, political turmoil, and generally unstable situation, Safer has fulfilled important and major maintenance plans, especially for gas turbines.

Safer Company pays undivided attention and shows great interest in providing good maintenance services for equipment, especially large ones such as gas turbines because of their importance and significant role in improving the production process, extending the life of machines and equipment, and reducing malfunctions that may hinder production and cause huge losses in time and money.

To avoid all production obstacles, Safer Company is keen on providing accurate maintenance to preserve productivity and maintain the safety of the company's workers and equipment.

In the absence of foreign experts and the difficulty of their presence, Safer Company relied on its national team of engineers and technicians to complete this achievement. It wasn't easy, but it wasn't impossible either. With the will and determination of the company's management and employees accompanied by a national sense of responsibility, the impossible was accomplished and the failure-leading obstacles were overcome.

The hard times SEPOC has been experiencing in completing all required maintenance work under the currently living tough circumstances have also represented an opportunity to refine the SEPOC national dedicated technical team and give them a golden opportunity to enhance their confidence in their proficiencies and prove themselves competent.
