INSTALLATION GUIDELINES Installation Guideline No. TPIM 1000B

1.0 SCOPE The intent of this document is to provide the Customer, as well as Solars FSRs, a general understanding of the lines of responsibility between Solar and the Customer, as it pertains to the package installation. Therefore, this document outlines the installation guidelines only for Solars pre-engineered standard package interface with a turbine-driven generator unit. This manual is applicable from the Saturn to the Titan 130 generator set.

2.0

GENERAL WARNINGS

WARNING - This general guideline is intended to facilitate communication between the owner, installer and Solar. Because these are guidelines and only intended to address common issues associated with pre-engineered "standard" package interface with a turbine-driven generator unit, it cannot replace the necessary dialog between the owner, installer and Solar; nor is it intended to replace the owner or installer's best practices. Failure to consider whether these general guidelines are applicable to the unique features of a project, or additions and/or modifications that are not reviewed and approved by Solar, may cause serious malfunction, may allow unsafe operation, or other unsafe condition, any of which could result in significant property damage, personnel injury, and/or loss of life. Solar's inspection, or failure to inspect, the performance of obligations of customer or its contractors shall not make Solar liable for such obligations of customer or its contractors. WELDING WARNING High currents flow between welding ground and the arc during arc welding. Precautions must be taken to ensure that this current does not pass through close tolerance moving surfaces, or electronic systems. Welding ground should be placed as close to the weld location as possible or on the component to be welded. Failure to observe this warning could void warranty claims. Prior to any welding procedures, ensure that the turbine package is not in operation and is grounded. Power must be removed from all PECC high force valves and actuators by opening the 120volt DC circuit breakers prior to welding on or in the vicinity of a turbine package. Weld grounding must be in proximity to weld activities. Power to the control system must be shut off. At no time is the skid to be used as a ground for welding or other facility purposes.

3.0

EXCEPTIONS TO GUIDELINES

This document does not cover any of the system commissioning activities, compressor sets or mechanical drive equipment, or site evaluation of the customer facilities to determine suitability for operation of Solars scope of supply. Proper integration with customer facilities should be discussed well upfront during the design phase of the project. This document is not applicable to mobile power unit (MPU). Refer to the MPU assembly/disassembly manual.

4.0

DOCUMENTATION AND DELIVERY

This document should be maintained along with the as-installed drawing set and updated as appropriate and made available to Solars Commissioning Personnel for the purpose of maintaining an accurate record of the package installation. The customer/contractor is responsible for maintaining an accurate and up-to-date record of the installation activities.

INSTALLATION GUIDELINES

The following are the detailed installation guidelines as outlined by the checklist found in section 5.0 of this installation manual. 9.1 OP: 1-0010 PURPOSE:

Site Preparation
SECURITY AND STORAGE THE PURPOSE OF THIS OPERATION IS TO ENSURE THAT ALL EQUIPMENT IS PROPERLY SECURED AND STORED. OBSERVE STANDARD SAFETY PRACTICES. MAKE SURE ALL PERSONNEL WHO ARE NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED WITH THE INSTALLATION ARE CLEARED FROM THE AREA. CONSULT WITH LEAD SITE PERSONNEL IF THERE ARE ANY ISSUES OR QUESTIONS.

SAFETY:

NOTES: 1. Packages stored at site must be protected from the weather. 2. Do not use duct tape on painted surfaces; the adhesive will damage the paint. 3. Special care should be taken to protect the paint during opening of shipping crates. A protective tarp should cover the entire package on construction site to prevent potential paint damage from sand blasting, welding and grinding. Pre-Installation and Fabrication procedures: These procedures are to be performed prior to the arrival of Solars Commissioning Personnel, and are the responsibility of the customer and their contractor. 1. 2. Ensure that shipping crates are placed in weatherproof shelter. Place shipping crates on level ground elevated off grade before construction activities. Necessary preservatives for storage were applied on packages and all external openings were properly sealed in the factory. Refer to PIL097 for the preservation information. Store open shipping crates in a controlled environment, such as a warehouse or better, with reasonable temperature and humidity levels. If factory preserved equipment has been opened for inspection, these items should follow preservation procedures as outlined in PIL097 if these items are not intended to be in use within three months.

OP: 1-0015 PURPOSE:

PACKING LIST THE PURPOSE OF THIS OPERATION IS TO PERFORM AN INVENTORY CHECK BY COMPARING THE PACKING LIST TO THE SHIPPING BILL ATTACHED TO EACH SHIPPING CRATE. DOCUMENT ANY DISCREPANCIES OR DAMAGE FOUND TO ANY PART. OBSERVE STANDARD SAFETY PRACTICES. MAKE SURE ALL PERSONNEL WHO ARE NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED WITH THE INSTALLATION ARE CLEARED FROM THE AREA. CONSULT WITH LEAD SITE PERSONNEL IF THERE ARE ANY ISSUES OR QUESTIONS.

SAFETY:

NOTES: 1. Shipping crates with hazardous material will be labeled per local or national regulation and are usually shipped separately. 2. It is strongly recommended that Solars FSR be on site upon arrival of shipping crates to assist the customer in verifying the integrity and condition of delivered equipment. Customer and Solars FSR should perform complete inventory check of all equipment, loose ship components, and associated parts together. 3. If crates have been opened prior to arrival of Solars FSR, any missing items are not the responsibility of Solar unless listed as backordered on shipping list. 4. For projects that require disassembly for shipping, coordinate with Solars Project Manager. 5. Ensure parts are stored in a reasonable logical manner. Keep dry if at all possible. If they cannot be kept dry and secure, inform DSM. PROCEDURE: 1. 2. The customer can receive a copy of the packing list by contacting Solars Project Manager. The shipping bill attached to each shipping crate contains a list of all items in those crates under the same bill. There could be two or more bills in one shipment. Always separate and sort those shipping crates for multiple packages against packing list and/or color code on crates. Perform an inventory check; any discrepancies or damage found should be photographed and documented. If possible, all boxes should be opened to allow for inspection of all components. This should only be accomplished if the materials can be repacked and properly stored. Replacement or repairing efforts should be addressed at an early stage. The following criteria should be used when conducting the inventory inspection: A. Check for damage to package/enclosure internals during shipment (equipment-removal beams, vibration, etc.). Check for water damage and/or corrosion to packing and components. Open and inspect all electrical panels. Ensure all panels are tightly closed after inspection. Check for impact damage. Components such as battery chargers and VFDs can have internal damage while showing no external damage. Remove access panels for internal inspection.

OP: 1-0030 PURPOSE: SAFETY:

LIFTING GUIDELINES THE PURPOSE OF THIS OPERATION IS TO PROVIDE LIFTING GUIDELINES. OBSERVE STANDARD SAFETY PRACTICES. MAKE SURE ALL PERSONNEL WHO ARE NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED WITH THE INSTALLATION ARE CLEARED FROM THE AREA. CONSULT WITH LEAD SITE PERSONNEL IF THERE ARE ANY ISSUES OR QUESTIONS.

WARNINGS: 1. Qualified (licensed) riggers must follow standard rigging procedures in making any lift. 2. A spreader bar must be used for all package lifts and boxed crates. 3. Never stand under or near an object being lifted or around the path it will travel. 4. Never stand near an operating crane. If the crane operator does not plan the lift appropriately, the crane can tip over. These procedures are to be performed prior to the arrival of Solars Commissioning Personnel, and are the responsibility of the customer and their contractor. PROCEDURE: 1. When lifting the package with or without an export crate, refer to the Package Lifting Guidelines found in PIL183. All lifts must have adequate rigging gear that is designed to support the lift weight with a sufficient factor of safety. When lifting loose ship items, be aware of any specific unpacking or uncrating instructions to avoid damage to equipment and injury to personnel. Unpacking equipment out of sequence or improper orientation may not expose lifting features and could lead to equipment damage and/or personnel injury. Riggers must use lifting provisions on the equipment, where provided. Unless instructions state otherwise, riggers must be cautioned to not lift ancillary equipment as assemblies. Lifting in such a way may impose stresses that may damage equipment.

OP: 2-1010 PURPOSE:

Installation Activities
VERIFY PACKAGE FOUNDATION & TIE-DOWN PURPOSE OF THIS DOCUMENT IS TO SUMMARIZE FOUNDATION CRITERIA, AND ACCEPTABLE METHODS OF ATTACHING TURBINE PACKAGES TO A FOUNDATION. OBSERVE STANDARD SAFETY PRACTICES. MAKE SURE ALL PERSONNEL WHO ARE NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED WITH THE INSTALLATION ARE CLEARED FROM THE AREA. CONSULT WITH LEAD SITE PERSONNEL IF THERE ARE ANY ISSUES OR QUESTIONS. An improperly designed and constructed foundation can result in serious harm to personnel and significant damage to equipment.

SAFETY:

WARNING:

NOTES: 1. The procedures outlined in this section are a summary of the referenced material listed below. For details on the various methods to properly construct the package foundation and bolting Solar turbine packages to the foundation, the customer, or the customers contractor, should consult the reference material for further detail. 2. In some cases, the mounting hardware is supplied by Solar, but in most cases is supplied by the end-user. Prior to the start of any foundation construction, verify that the correct parts are present to properly mount package to foundation per the design intent shown on the MID. Be aware that some foundation hardware must be encased in foundation concrete, so timely hardware supply can be critical to site schedule. 3. A qualified Civil Engineer must be contracted by the end-user to design all aspects of the site foundations. Solar Turbines Incorporated takes no responsibility for any foundation design below Datum C. REFERENCES:For further details on any data listed within this procedure, please refer to PIL181, ES9414, and ER9298. Pre-Installation and Fabrication Procedures: These procedures are to be performed prior to the arrival of Solars Commissioning Personnel, and are the responsibility of the customer and their contractor. 1. Foundation fundamentals A. For on-shore applications, ensure that concrete with the proper compressive strength is chosen based on the Pad Loads listed on Solars MID. Note the pad loads can include dynamic and short circuit loads, which can be significant in relation to static loads. The foundation designer must ensure the equipment and foundation mass ratio is appropriate to industry standards, and is responsible for the vibration frequencies of the foundation outside of the operating speed range of the Turbomachinery. For offshore applications, it is assumed that the supporting structure will be designed with sufficient strength to support the Turbomachinery static and dynamic loads. The supporting structure should be designed to prevent excessive twist and vertical deflection of the package. If there is a question on deck deflection limits, please request a copy of ER9298 from Solar Turbines Incorporated.

INSTALLATION GUIDELINES Installation Guideline No. TPIM 1000B

2.

Turbomachinery is high precision equipment, and Solar Turbines Incorporated requires strict tolerances on foundation levelness and flatness. By following Solars foundation recommendations, the package can be mounted using commercially available shims. Failure to follow recommended foundation tolerances can often result in rework efforts such as the fabrication of tapered shims at the end-users, or installation contractors expense. A. Sole plates cast into foundation concrete must be coplanar to each other within 0.120 (0.30 cm). Sole plates cast into foundation concrete must be flat and level within 0.005/ft. (0.050 mm/cm). if mounting pad limits cannot be obtained, contact the DSM for appropriate action.

B.

Note: 3.

There are several methods suggested by Solar for bolting packages down to foundations, and two methods for leveling. While there may be other acceptable methods, it is suggested that the end-user consult with Solar if the proposed method differs from those outlined below. A full description, and diagrams of the below-listed methods are available from Solars PIL181. Tie Down Methods: A. Captive Anchor-Stud Assembly - Pullout strength must be specified based on the foundation materials, and the potential upward dynamic loads for each package. Solar has deemed a 40,000 lb. pullout strength as being sufficient for all packages. Nut and Bolt Arrangement A 1-1/2 diameter, Grade B7 (or equivalent) nut and bolt can be used to tie all Solar packages to foundation. The bolt must be sized sufficiently to pass through the customers foundation, and to allow a minimum of two threads to protrude through the retaining nut, when package tie-down is torqued. Bolt and Threaded Bearing Plate A 1-1/2 diameter, Grade B7 (or equivalent) bolt can be used in conjunction with a threaded bearing plate. The bearing plate should be constructed of A-572 steel (or equivalent) and has a recommended thickness of 2-1/2 in order to achieve the minimum 2 thread engagement.

B.

C.

Leveling Methods: A. Stainless steel shims Industrial stainless steel shims are a very effective way of leveling Solar machinery. Shims must be at least 50 inches-square, and should encompass the package tie-down bolt as closely as possible. Epoxy Grout Non-shrinking, epoxy grout has been a successful method of leveling many Solar packages. The type of grout, and the required strength should be specified by a qualified grout contractor based on the loads and site conditions. Note: Many customers choose to do a full-perimeter grout pour for noise-attenuation, sanitation purposes, and to prevent the collection of explosive gases. This is acceptable, but the grout contractor should specify a non-structural grout for these purposes.

OP: 2-1020 PURPOSE:

PACKAGE MOUNTING & LEVELING THE PURPOSE OF THIS OPERATION IS TO SUMMARIZE THE PROCEDURE TO PLACE SOLAR PACKAGES ON THEIR FOUNDATION, ESTABLISH VERTICAL ELEVATION, LEVEL PACKAGE, AND PREPARE FOR DRIVE TRAIN ALIGNMENT. OBSERVE STANDARD SAFETY PRACTICES. MAKE SURE ALL PERSONNEL WHO ARE NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED WITH THE INSTALLATION ARE CLEARED FROM THE AREA. CONSULT WITH LEAD SITE PERSONNEL IF THERE ARE ANY ISSUES OR QUESTIONS.

SAFETY:

WARNINGS: 1. Improper mounting can result in serious harm to personnel and significant damage to equipment. 2. Rigging and lifting packaged equipment can be extremely dangerous. Properly trained personnel must conduct all lifts to prevent serious injury to personnel, and possible damage to the equipment. NOTES: 1. The procedures outlined in this section are a summary of the reference material listed below. For details on the various methods for mounting and leveling of Solar turbine packages to the foundation, the customer, or the customers contractor, should consult the reference material for further detail. 2. This procedure is intended as a guideline for skid leveling activities. Because there are multiple configurations to Solars equipment, reference to ES9-414 may be necessary in order to successfully elevate and level the equipment. 3. Leveling of a package with a sub-base, anti-vibration mounts (AVM), or gimbals is beyond the scope of this operation. If the package is equipped with any of these features, please refer directly to ES9-414. 4. Verify all measurement instruments and tools are calibrated and meet required accuracy. 5. Be advised that Datum C shown on Solars MID is the lower surface of the skid mounting pads, and not the upper surface of the foundation. Provisions for leveling (shimming or grouting) must be allowed in the foundation, and establishment of a consistent site water mark to which the skid elevation will be referenced to will greatly aid in the positioning of all site equipment. 6. A machined surface exists on the top of all skid-lifting points. These machined surfaces form a plane referred to as Datum D, and are used as a reference during the elevation portion of installation. 7. Note that a two-piece skid that is shipped bolted together should not be considered as a single unit once on site, and the interface bolts should be loosened regardless of whether there has been any apparent shift in the interface joint.

Figure 1: Two-Piece Bolted Skid

REFERENCE: ES9-414 Installation and Fabrication Procedures: These procedures may be performed by the installation contractor prior to the arrival of Solars Commissioning Personnel. If Solars personnel are present on site, they should participate in an advisory role only. 1. Confirm that the foundation pads on which the package will rest are within the guidelines requested in Operation 2-1010. Measure the distances between tie-down locations in the foundation, and ensure that the pattern matches what is shown on Solars MID. Measure the tie-down points on the skid, and ensure that they will mate properly to the foundation before lifting the unit. Ensure that there are no high spots between the frame tie-down location that might interfere with the underside of the skid. It can be extremely difficult to raise some of the Solars larger packages using the jacking bolts due to their weight. While the package is being lifted, it is advisable to extend the jacking bolts downward by threading them through the frame foundation pads as far as possible. By doing this, the package can be lowered into the correct elevation with less effort. Lift the package into position, and rest it on the extended jacking bolts. If the package has a two-piece skid, the interface joint should be loosened at this point to allow independent movement of both the driver, and driven package. Lower the skids to the correct elevation using the machined surfaces of Datum D, and a predetermined Site Elevation Point. Setting the elevation of the skid is best done with a Surveyors transit, or equivalent measuring device. Ensure that the surfaces of Datum D are level and coplanar within 1/16 of one another. Special Note: On most multi-piece skids, machined match-marks are provided at the interface joint. Use the match marks at the package interface pads to ensure the elevation of the bases are equivalent. The elevation between the two sections of the package should have been set very closely during the prior elevation of Datum D, but elevation should be confirmed. If one of

the sections of the package is higher than the other, then it must be determined which one should be moved. That package section should be elevated or lowered until the match marks are aligned. This must be done evenly and carefully to retain the preliminary level established using Datum D. If the factory match marks are not provided, then the interface bolt holes must be used as the guide to elevating the skids. 8. Begin leveling the skid(s) by measuring the level of the machined surfaces used to mount the drive train equipment. Measurements should be taken using a machinists level, or equivalent measuring device. All measurements should be taken immediately adjacent to the location where the drive train equipment bolts to the skid. In the case of a multi-piece skid, the driver package should be leveled first, and then the driven skid. The machined equipment pads must be leveled in both the forward-to-aft, and the side-to-side orientation to the required level criteria of 0.005/ft on each pad. Special Note: Some Solar packages mount to their foundations using only 3 or 4 mounting points, and packages of this type will experience some deflection under their own weight. It may not be possible to get all pads within the level criteria in the forward to aft direction, and in these cases, the central gearbox pad will become the governing surface. For packages of this configuration, only this pad is required to meet the forward-to-aft level criteria. In all cases, all machined pads must meet the side-to-side level criteria of 0.005/ft. 10. At this point, multi-piece skids should be bolted together once again. Prior to torquing the interface bolts, the interface match-marks should be checked to ensure they are still aligned with one another. Note: Ultimately, the match-marks are only intended for guidance, and if a package is properly elevated and leveled, then those criteria override the match marks being aligned. Be aware that the match-marks are used during factory construction, and that a substantial misalignment could lead to issues with interconnect piping between the two halves of the package. Final Leveling and Pre-Alignment Checks: It is advisable to enlist Solars Commissioning Personnel for the remainder of this procedure. The following steps are critical to the performance of the Turbomachinery, and Solars personnel can work in an advisory role to ensure proper installation of the unit. 1. At this point, a preliminary alignment check should be performed (see OP 2-1030). The purpose of this check is to assure that the drive train equipment is capable of being aligned, and not to perform detailed alignment measurements. Make sure the equipment is not bolt-bound, and that there is sufficient room for movement in any direction. Prepare the leveling materials (shims or grout) for the final package tie-down. If the package is being leveled using shims, the gap between Datum C and the foundation should be carefully measured, and filled as completely as possible with shim. If the package is being leveled using epoxy grout, the manufacturers recommendations should be followed to ensure proper application. Special Note: When using shims, a maximum shim stack-up of no more than 1 is suggested, and a maximum shim count of six shims. There are cases where more shim thickness may be necessary, and these will require extra care to ensure that a soft-foot condition is not created. Grout chock thickness should be specified in accordance with manufacturers recommendations, but Solars recommendation is a minimum thickness of 1.5 in order to ease the physical constraints of constructing the damming material.

3.

Fill the gap between the skid and the foundation with the appropriate leveling material, and allow for proper cure time in the case of epoxy grout. Arrange a dial indicator with the dial indicator tip on the upper surface of the frame foundation pads, and zero the dial. Back the jacking bolts off to where there is at least 0.25 of clearance, and torque the skid tie-down hardware and observe the movement measured by the dial indicator. The measured movement should not exceed 0.002 in order to maintain the level of the equipment pads. If the movement exceeds the maximum allowable, then some re-shimming efforts may have to be performed. In some cases, the skid tie down pads will need to be elevated slightly in order to install sufficient shim. It is a good practice to leave the dial indicator in place during this operation so as not to lose the level reference point.

4.

Once all tie-down locations have been shimmed and torqued, a final level check should be performed on all machined equipment mounting pads. If any of the pads are outside of the level criteria, then some re-shimming efforts must be performed to bring those pads back within the criteria.

OP: 2-1030 PURPOSE:

DRIVE TRAIN ALIGNMENT THE PURPOSE OF THIS OPERATION IS TO PROVIDE AN OVERVIEW TO COMPLETE THE DRIVE TRAIN ALIGNMENT. OBSERVE STANDARD SAFETY PRACTICES. WHEN APPLICABLE, MAKE SURE PERSONNEL NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED DURING INSTALLATON ARE CLEARED FROM AREA. Rotation of some equipment can be difficult, and can require large forces to overcome the equipment inertia. Do not, under any circumstances, use any technique or workaround that may put any site personnel in danger. Rotating shafts can also be extremely difficult to stop, so ensure that no personnel can be trapped or caught by moving equipment.

SAFETY:

WARNING:

CAUTIONS: 1. Pre-lube the machinery prior to rotation to prevent possible bearing or gear damage. 2. Rotate the machinery in the direction of normal operation. 3. If misalignment has been caused by attachment of header pipes or ducting, make corrections to the offending item(s). Do not reposition the driver or driven machines as a method of correcting the misaligned condition. NOTES: 1. Thermal growth targets are based on full load operating conditions and a 70F (21C) ambient temperature. Alignment measurements must be done with the machinery at ambient temperature, so be aware that a thermally soaked package can require 12-24 hours to cool from operating temperature. 2. All package heaters should be turned off during drive train alignment. In cold weather, efforts should be made to bring the drive train up to the appropriate temperature. If the unit is housed in a building, the buildings heating should be run at 70F (21C) for 8 hours prior to alignment measurements. If the unit is not housed in a building, then temporary space heaters inside the enclosure will be sufficient. 3. When aligning outdoors or in other unstable temperature environments, be aware of thermal growth effects on the package and alignment tooling. Alignment must take place during the most stable temperature conditions. 4. For Mars products, the air inlet must be loosened and the weight of the duct supported by the engine. The top flange of the exhaust bellows must be loosened to allow movement between the bellows and the ducting. 5. Alignment must be accomplished prior to initial starting and whenever any change has been made in the relative position of the driving to driven equipment. PROCEDURE: Pre-Alignment Set-up These procedures should be performed by Solars commissioning personnel, or by the installation contractor under advisement of Solars personnel. 1. Remove shipping braces before beginning alignment procedures.
Caterpillar: Confidential Green 2007 Caterpillar

INSTALLATION GUIDELINES Installation Guideline No. TPIM 1000B

Note: This alignment procedure assumes that no soft foot or short foot conditions exist on any of the machinery (i.e. skid to foundation, or driven equipment to skid), and it is assumed at this point that the base(s) have been properly elevated and leveled. 2. 3. Verify that all tie-down bolts are lubricated with anti-seize lubricant. Ensure the skid is still within the level criteria after being torqued down to the foundation; proceed with rotating equipment alignment and fitting of the coupling(s). Fill oil tank to the normal operating level prior to starting alignment. On Mars packages, remove the top half of the gearbox input casing to expose the machined bore and face surfaces for indicator access. Loosen the air inlet/exhaust duct engine interfaces to allow free movement between the bellows and ducting. Verify that manifolds (i.e. lube oil supply) are loosened to allow for free movement of the machines during alignment. Verify that the equipment mounting pad areas where shims are placed are clean and free of oil, grease, and debris. Use clean shims. Do not use shims that are rusted, oily, or deformed. Set components in their normal running positions. The purpose of running position thrusts" is to place the rotors of all the machines in their operational positions, prior to alignment. Set the generator shaft (if applicable) at the magnetic center. Note: This step is not required for generators with a thrust bearing. 11. For Mars turbine units, pull the power turbine output shaft out until it is biased against its thrust bearing, mark, and clamp. If an axial probe is provided, its gap voltage can be used to verify that the turbine shaft is contacting the thrust collar. Power Turbine Shaft Leveling Tool for Mars packages (FT30635): Note: The purpose of this tool is to push the shaft-end downward into the level position to simulate the operating condition. The level shaft condition is best found by using a dial indicator on the shaft end, and by determining the point where the shaft end face is perpendicular to the axis of the drive train. A. Install the power turbine shaft leveling tool (FT30635) to the power turbine housing using the top three (3) bolt holes of the power turbine housing. B. Verify tool is free to move up and down in its guides without binding. Install dial indicator base on turbine housing bearing face, with the dial indicator tip on outer perimeter of the shaft-end face. C. Turn hand knob on leveling tool until roller comes into contact with the power turbine shaft. D. Push the shaft down by rotating the hand knob until a 180 sweep of the shaft end face produces zero (+/-.001in) indicator movement. E. The shaft is now perpendicular to the bearing face and ready for alignment.

Laser Alignment A. B. C. VO is Vertical Offset and HO is Horizontal Offset. VA is Vertical Angularity and HA is Horizontal Angularity. The convention assumes that the stationary machine is always on your left and the moveable machine is always on your right. Therefore, the following signs apply: +VO = Moveable machine is higher than the stationary machine. VO = Moveable machine is lower than the stationary machine. +VA = Coupling open at the top. VA = Coupling open at the bottom. +HO = Movable machine is away from you relative to the stationary machine. HO = Movable machine is toward you relative to the stationary machine. +HA = Coupling open away from you. HA = Coupling open towards you.

Preliminary Alignment set-up 1. Once all the machinery is in running position, use the axially oriented jacking bolts to set the faceto-face (calculated flange to flange) distance between machines as shown on the MID. Verify axial position of the machinery. Use an inside micrometer to measure axial distance between faces at top, bottom and sides and average the readings. This average must be within the calculated flange-to-flange distance on Solars MID. Note: Hubs must be in their neutral positions during this verification. The dry hubs are in the neutral position when all lock down (yellow and red) screws are loose. 3. Ensure that none of the equipment is bolt-bound, and that if necessary, there is allowable movement in all directions. Equipment tie-down bolts can only be fully torqued approximately six times. In order to prevent exceeding this limit, equipment tie-down bolts should only be torqued to 70% of values given in ES9-54 while performing shim changes. Dial Indicator Notes: A. The face diameter is defined as that diameter on the specific housing face for which the face offset is given. This sweep diameter must be an uninterrupted surface. Bore Left (BL) readings and Face Left (FL) readings are recorded from equipment during a 360 sweep. All readings must be within specified tolerance.

Sweep with the BT and FT reading at 0.0 in the 12 oclock position. Slowly rotate the alignment tool one complete rotation in the direction of normal rotation and record the following dial indicator readings: FL, FR, FB, BL, BR, and BB. Face and bore may be swept independently. If lateral alignment adjustment is necessary, do not move the fixed reference point. From the FL, FR, BL, and BR readings adjust the other machine laterally using the near and far feet jacking bolts until the face and bore values are obtained. Reconfirm axial distance when satisfied. Fully retract jacking bolts. Recheck lateral alignment. Repeat the sweep alignment to verify repeatability of the dial indicators. The alignment drawings indicate the need to perform ALIGNMENT tooling sag verification for the purpose of checking for excessive tooling sag. For example: i) Set the dial indicator at 0.0 at the 12 oclock position. Sweep the bore and record the BL, BR, and BB readings. Verify BL + BR = BB +/- 0.005-inch (0.13mm). If BL + BR BB > 0.005-inch (0.13mm), locate and correct the problem of excessive sag. If sag > 0.005-inch (0.13mm) cannot be corrected, note the sag value and use it in determining vertical shim correction.

The target machine is the machine with the laser receiver attached. Adjustments must be made with clean shims. Do not use shims that are rusted, oily, or deformed. Make lateral adjustments before shimming.

Final Alignment Verification These procedures should be performed by Solars commissioning personnel to verify that the alignment readings have not been disturbed during the following installation and commissioning activities. 1. 2. 3. All manifolds are tightened in place. Oil tank is filled to its operating level. In cold weather, the oil tank heaters are turned on, and the oil temperature has stabilized at 70F (21C) for 8 hours prior to alignment. Jacking Bolts are retracted after use. The inlet and exhaust ducts are tightened in place. Doweling (If not completed at the factory): Typically, the fixed equipment is not shimmed but doweled. Once all alignment is acceptable, dowel the fixed equipment in place. Verify alignment after doweling. If any of the above listed activities has put the alignment readings outside of the allowable limits, make the necessary adjustments through re-shimming the movable equipment. Re-sweep, reshim, and re-check until there is confidence that all equipment loads are imposed on the drive train, and the equipment is within the allowable limits. Remove the alignment tool(s).

EXTERNAL PIPING THE PURPOSE OF THIS OPERATION IS TO PROVIDE A BEST-PRACTICE GUIDE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION AND VERIFICATION OF INSTALLATION INTEGRITY OF EXTERNAL PIPE RUNS. OBSERVE STANDARD SAFETY PRACTICES. MAKE SURE ALL PERSONNEL WHO ARE NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED WITH THE INSTALLATION ARE CLEARED FROM THE AREA. CONSULT WITH LEAD SITE PERSONNEL IF THERE ARE ANY ISSUES OR QUESTIONS.

SAFETY:

WARNINGS: 1. Failure to follow the best practices outlined within this operation can result in piping that is unfit for operation, and will be considered a serious safety concern. 2. Exhaust collector and combustor drains must drain to a safe location. Drains may go to a common location, but must never have shutoff valves installed. 3. Drain lines may contain preservation oil or flammable gas. Do not drain until downstream system is ready or temporary drain system has been put in place. 4. Exhaust collector drains should not be connected to any common drain that is also used to drain or vent flammable gasses or fluids. 5. Pipes may be pressurized even if the turbomachinery is not running. Ensure the pressure is released before performing any work. 6. Over-pressurizing of piping can cause serious personal injury, or even death. Ensure that the pressure limits of the piping, flanges, gasket and bolts are fully understood if the piping is to be pressurized to any value other than the design pressure. 7. Not all power-generating units use flame arresters; however, if one is used, flame arrester for lube oil tank vent must be installed to prevent fire flashback. 8. Pilot gas vent line shall not contain any valves or restricting devices. Excessive backpressure to this vent can result in system or component malfunction and can cause personal injury or death to personnel, and significant site damage. 9. Ensure that piping remains properly isolated from other pipe system, instrument, electrical runs, live devices and civil construction at all times during construction. This will prevent intrusion of oil, water, or other contamination. CAUTIONS: 1. Improper welding on Solar equipment or piping structures may damage sensitive components, and can void any warranty coverage on those components. Piping runs on which welding is being performed must be disconnected from the package. 2. Consider the use of temporary supports while constructing external piping systems. This can prevent improper loading on equipment, accumulation of stresses in the piping, and can prevent potential distortion to the systems. 3. Ensure the piping and its structure does not impose any pre-loads on the turbomachinery, as this can have detrimental effects on the longevity and performance of some components.

OP: 2-1046 PURPOSE:

EXTERNAL LUBE OIL FLUSHING THE PURPOSE OF THIS OPERATION IS TO ENSURE THAT THE LUBE OIL SYSTEM FLUSHING IS PERFORMED PER SOLARS SUGGESTED PROCEDURES. OBSERVE STANDARD SAFETY PRACTICES. MAKE SURE ALL PERSONNEL WHO ARE NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED WITH THE INSTALLATION ARE CLEARED FROM THE AREA. CONSULT WITH LEAD SITE PERSONNEL IF THERE ARE ANY ISSUES OR QUESTIONS. Flushing procedures can involve pressurized fluids at high temperatures. For personnel safety reasons, and for the benefit of the equipment, only qualified personnel should be involved in the flushing of piping and coolers. Failure to follow the procedure outlined in this operation can result in unsatisfactory system cleanliness, and package contamination. Equipment failures caused by external contamination may not be covered by Solars warranty.

SAFETY:

WARNING:

CAUTION:

NOTES: 1. The Solar package is flushed and sealed at the factory. The package is certified clean, up to the skid-edge connections and as long as the skid edge and tank lid seals are not compromised during construction, there is no need to flush the unit any further. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that all lube oil connections remain sealed at all times prior to connection of the interconnect piping. Leaving lube oil connections open on site will result in the requirement of a package flush at the customer/contractor expense. Disturbing the factory installed seals without the supervision of Solars commissioning personnel can result in the requirement of a package flush at the customer/contractor expense.

2. To ensure the cleanliness of the lube oil cooler, the customer must arrange for all coolers to be flushed on site in accordance with ES2184 prior to making any piping connections. Ensure that the lube oil interconnect lines are flushed in an isolated loop prior to connecting to the cooler, as this will prevent the introduction of contaminants. The cooler itself can be flushed in isolation, or be connected in with the post-flushed interconnect piping depending on which method is most convenient. All vent lines shall be flushed in accordance with Appendix A of ES2184. Note: While lube oil coolers are flushed and sealed at the point of manufacture, Solar acknowledges that debris can become dislodged during transportation. It is the customers responsibilities to flush all lube oil coolers at site, regardless of the results of a visual inspection. All flushing must be performed using a flushing rig, and never with the package lube oil pumps as this will result in insufficient flow and contamination of the package. Caution: Flushing contractors equipment, if not clean, can cause the contamination to piping and equipment. 3. An external filtering rig must be used to perform all lube oil pipe flushing activities. Under no circumstances should the package lube oil pumps be used for flushing, as they are not capable of providing the required flow. The package filters also must not be used as they are not sufficient for these purposes, and this drastically increases the chances of package contamination. The flushing rig should utilize a 3-5 micron filter during pipe flushing.

INSTALLATION GUIDELINES Installation Guideline No. TPIM 1000B

4. Due to the cost of synthetic oils, the use of mineral oils can be an attractive option for flushing purposes. Care must be taken to ensure that the flushing oil is compatible with the service oil because any residual flushing oil left in the system will dilute and degrade the service oil. The oil supplier should be able to address any oil compatibility issues. 5. In many cases, the flushing oil is serviceable for package operation. The reusability of the oil can depend on several factors such as the steps taken to clean the site-erected piping, preservation practices, removal of any water used for hydro testing, etc. Additives such as the anti-foam additive may coat new metal surfaces, or may retain water due to its polar bond. The oil supplier should be queried about how to determine if the oil is still suitable for use. REFERENCES: ES9-224, ES2184 Pre-Installation and Fabrication Procedures: These procedures are to be performed prior to the arrival of Solars Commissioning Personnel, and are the responsibility of the customer and their installation contractor. 1. 2. Ensure that the oil-flushing rig is flushed Per ES2184. Add the off-skid cooler piping to the flush loop (without cooler or package connection) and flush/filter to ES2184 and number 100 mesh captured particles. Add the oil cooler to the flush loop and flush/filter to ES2184. Each flush shall be flushed at a flow rate and temperature so that a minimum Reynolds number of 4000 is achieved through each section, or 150% of design flow, whichever is greater. Connect the cooler lines to the package, and ensure that no blank flanges are left in the system. Refer to ES9-224 and ES2184 if any further background information is required. Once flushing activities are complete, and the lube oil cooler interconnect pipes are attached to the package, the oil tank should be filled with oil poured through a 3-micron filter.
