This research report was commissioned to explore the risks that aging CCGT plant components impose on people, environment and the wider plant.

Based on this research, the report identifies:

  • example failures to plant that can arise through the wear and tear of aging;
  • the expected severity of such as failure, and its likelihood, and
  • guidance for additional preventative measures to prevent or mitigate such failures.

It covers the gas turbine (e.g. filter house, compressor, turbine, etc.), steam and water plant (e.g. tube banks, steam turbine, condenser, etc.), electrical equipment (e.g. generator, cables, switchgear, etc.) and auxiliary systems (e.g. the oil systems, control and instrumentation (C&I) and civil structures).
