•A Mark VIe control system retrofit for either heavy-duty gas or steam turbines provides improved performance, operability and availability to your operations. Its flexible design provides a simplex, dual or triple redundant configuration to meet your needs. Benefits include:
•Ease of operation through advanced software tools and networks
•Less maintenance and mean-time-to-repair with modern diagnostic tools and the ability to integrate third party monitoring and control systems into the turbine control
•Improved lifecycle support with access to current GE upgrade/maintenance programs for software and hardware and access to spare parts
•Reduced project cost and implementation time
•Common HMI, training, testing and parts support
•Ensures system availability, operability and startup reliability to avoid unnecessary trips
•Increased operator understanding of turbine operation, awareness of pending faults and helps to promote regular maintenance checks of key accessory systems
•Increased operator awareness of turbine state and progress to full speed no load
•Enhanced troubleshooting ability of failed starts
•Helps improve the overall start-up process, to ensure on-time, reliable plant start-up capability
The BHGE Mark VIe Turbine Control System with SIL-capable protection is designed for peace of mind, meeting the functional safety requirements of IEC 61508 and 61511. It integrates the SIL-certified robustness of the Mark VIeS platform with the proven control technology of the Mark VIe for gas turbines to provide reliable protection while minimizing the cost of installation and operation.
