Atlantic LNG has developed a proven method for LNG turbine maintenance, which will revolutionize the industry. Over the life of Atlantic’s 4-Train facility, this method will reduce planned downtime by over a year. This paper details the innovative approach that the authors took to reduce Atlantic LNGs first major gas turbine overhaul from 29 days to 23 days, and the second major overhaul from 23 days to 18 days, with the ultimate goal of a 12 day turnaround (TAR). Atlantic LNG will soon begin a cycle in which a major overhaul is required approximately every 6 months as we cycle through our fleet of 26 Frame 5s. Using Gantry System technology, the company will be able to achieve a 50% reduction in downtime, which equates to approximately 1 year of additional production over the life of the plant.
