The high budget of gas turbo generators is an obstacle for investing on them at industries with large amount of electricity consumption that desire to have in-house steady low cost source of power.
Investment in used robust gas turbo machines is a cost effective solution for those factories that wants to have their own in-house power station.
Speed of technology changes in turbo machines is not fast as IT and the customers through competitive market can find affordable used gas turbo generators from well-known brands in good and healthy conditions.
But these are old machines with risk of failure and aside a regular preservative maintenance program it is important to have a modern effective control system for safe operation with strong troubleshooting options to diagnose root of machine failures.
Retrofitting control system of old turbines not only resolve maintenances issues but also operators can use advantage of new modern control technologies to improve the operations.
Retrofitting turbine control unit can make investment in used gas turbo generators affordable, the budget of a turbine control unit compare to total price of machine is negligible and after retrofitting used turbo machines and the new ones will look the same from the operator point of view
