Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has broken the world record in major inspection outages by re-engineering the Gas Turbine SGT-4000F overhaul process at the Jebel Ali Power and Desalination Complex.
DEWA succeeded the completion of its major inspection outage within 11 working days compared to 30 working days previously. This allows a 63% reduction in outage duration, leading to increased availability of its gas turbines.
