Trainer Write-up

Ensuring Effective Operational Management of Gas Turbines in Power Plants and LNG Trains

The Course
The introduction of high-temp gas turbines has been anything but trouble-free, with models from all manufacturers falling short of reliability and durability expectations. However, it is still an operational imperative for you to ensure reliability in your gas turbines to maximise performance to your operations. Join us for a comprehensive 4 day interactive training seminar in order to give yourself an edge in effective operational management of your Gas Turbines. Gas Turbine Reliability Management is designed to give you an comprehensive understanding of the latest reliability management strategies to help you: • Examine the performance and life assessments for gas turbines aimed at improving gas turbine operational performance and maintenance practices • Minimize the likelihood of failures • Ensure higher reliability to prolong asset life and reduce maintenance costs • Integrate performance of Gas Turbines, HRSG, Steam Turbines in Combined Cycle Power Plant

At Course Completion
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to: • Understand Gas Turbines Basics and Applications. • Develop a detailed knowledge on material systems employed in gas turbines. • Understand degradation mechanisms and how to predict them. • Trend / Condition Monitoring of Gas Turbines. • Performance Analysis, Thermal, Mechanical etc. • Determine optimal linkages between condition assessments, including mechanical and NDT, fracture mechanics and stress analysis using simulation. • Examine recent advances in the ability to model the creep and fatigue behaviour of advanced turbine materials. • Systematic and Practical management of gas turbine components. • Risk management mechanisms in relation to repair and maintenance. • Key competencies for management decision making on overhaul scheduling and condition assessment techniques. • Work-scoping in Gas Turbine Power Plant, with emphasis on cost reduction. • Integrating Gas Turbine, HRSG , Steam Turbine in Combined Cycle Power Plant. • Warranty and Insurances related to Gas Turbine Operation.

Mr S.Nadeem Ahmed has more than 20 years of engineering experience in different industrial sectors with his career as a Mechanical Engineer with manufacturing and process industry . For the past 15 years he is working with Pakistan International Airlines Engineering MRO facility on Maintenance Repair, Overhaul, Testing and Evaluation of turbo machinery. The facility is fully equipped for General Electric, Rolls Royce, Snecma and Pratt & Whitney Turbo Machines and its static and rotating equipment as accessories. He has been Trained by and has Diversified Experience on GE , Rolls Royce and Pratt & Whitney Machines. His present assignments also include the Business Development of Aero Gas Turbine / Aero derivative Gas Turbine Repair, Refurbishment and Overhaul. This requires customer interface between OEM and existing MRO setups globally. In addition Mr S.Nadeem Ahmed is an international conference speaker and workshop facilitator in events globally addressing Gas Turbine Power Plants, Rotating equipment, Reliability Engineering, Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma. He has trained a number of professionals in the same area within and outside his organisation. He provisioned process companies (Fertilizer, Glass, Power Generation, Oil and Gas etc) Effective Reliability Improvement Programs, Maintenance Management Strategies, Lean Maintenance and Six Sigma Process Improvement Strategies integrating the same with reliability solutions.
