The Rolls-Royce Avon aeroderivative gas generator has amassed over 45 million hours of operation in industrial applications since its introduction in 1964. However, its reputation for reliability and long life has kept it in the forefront in many markets. With the increasing world-wide requirements for lower emissions, the decision was taken to incorporate a Dry Low Emissions (DLE) combustion system to provide operators with increased options. It was also decided that the retrofit market would be fully addressed, thus driving the need to minimise changes to the basic engine. How this project has been approached, with a low risk solution both to the mechanical and operational integrity, is the basis for this paper.
