Grupo Sicelub Lubritech has been working in Renewables Energy since some years ago. We have performed services in Wind Turbines in Argentina and Brazil, and now, we continue working with Steam Turbines in Concentrated Solar Power Plant Industry. We have just finalized a service in Spain.
Solar Energy can be generated by two different processes. You probably are more familiar with photovoltaic cells, where energy from sun is directly converted into an electrical current.
There are other plants, called Concentrated Solar Plants (CSP) where Energy from sun is used to Heat up a fluid (hot oil) that is used to generate steam and move a steam turbine. This is the case of our recent service in Spain. We performed a filtration Service to a lubricating oil system of more of 6,000 Gallons of Oil in a very important Plant in Andalucía, Spain. The job was in a Nuovo Pignone Steam Turbine of 50 Mw.
The Service started when we drained the oil to an external tank, performed filtration until reach a lower ISO 4406 Code. We cleaned the oil reservoir and filled with filtered oil. Then, when oil started to circulate by the entire system, we continued with the filtration until reach ISO 16/14/12.
Using this procedure, we secured a safe start up of the turbine, and more reliable operation until the next turnaround, according to best practices recommended by ASTM D-4378.
On this jow, we had 2 field technicians, a filtration skid of 80 GPM using filter elements 34” length.
We also applied a high standard safety procedure to enter in the confined space, gas detector, fans for having fresh air. Beyond technical knowledge in lubrication, we are also specialist in Safety and Environmental.
