Centrax strengthens relationship with Siemens through SGT-AO5

Published on: 

Centrax Gas Turbines has been awarded MROC status by Siemens Energy, allowing Centrax to maintain, repair and overhaul the Siemens SGT-A05 gas turbine at their new MROC facility at the company’s headquarters in South West England.

Centrax has been packaging the engine for almost 40 years and until recently has only been able to carry out maintenance to the hot section.   The move to MROC status will mean that Centrax’ fleet of operational engines can now be fully repaired and overhauled by one party, delivering a faster and more efficient turnaround for customers.

Speaking on behalf of Siemens Energy, Robert Bouwens, Director of Global Sales, SGT-A05, commented: “Following a rigorous audit, Centrax has been granted our license as a certified MROC facility to service their packages.”


The SGT-A05, formerly known as the 501K, is the core engine installed in over 340 Centrax CX501 generator sets.  These units are situated at sites predominately in Europe, Russia and North Africa.  With its 3.9 to 5.7 MW power range and high levels of operational flexibility, the SGT-A05 gas turbine is well suited to a range of applications including CHP, standby and oil and gas processes.
