Data on the distribution by size of generator-drive gas turbines insured by Allendale Insurance, Arkwright and Protection Mutual insurance companies is presented. Similar data on loss costs is included. The principal failure modes are shown and described. Finally, a comprehensive table outlining the causes of these failure modes, and the optimum approaches to their prevention, is given.
