 “What does this role feel like?”

The planning of a typical service outage for a Steam Turbine starts 6 to 12 months before the actual outage. Parts, repair activities and the Field Service schedules are discussed with the customer.

Probably many of these, are already known from previous outages. During the four-week outage which follows, many interactions take place with technical experts from customers and the Siemens factory to discuss the findings and a technical way-forward. After the four-week period, a commissioning engineer will assist in the start-up of the Steam Turbine and together you will leave the site of the customer after succesful start-up.
