Mainshaft solutions

The challenge to reduce cost of energy brings into contrast the original equipment costs and the longer-term Opex drivers. As today’s service business matures, its becoming clear that decisions made for component selection can strongly influence maintenance needs. For example; the impact of the main shaft reliability is disproportionate in terms of Opex. A shift in focus, from individual component costs towards a system approach, will drive greater reliability. The performance of main shaft bearings will benefit from insights into design interfaces and complementary functions between associated parts. This approach also provides opportunities for upgrades and retrofitting to boost energy production.
