GE delivers first HA component repaired at GRSS’s newly opened AMRT center

GE aims to expand its HA and Aeroderivative Repair Business to handle more complex repairs on HA turbines—including repair on high-tech components, such as HA nozzles and blades.

GE announced the completion and delivery of the first repaired HA component from the recently opened Advanced Manufacturing & Repair Technology Center (AMRT) in Singapore. The center is co-located in Global Repair Solutions Singapore Center (GRSS), which was established in 2019, with the support of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), to develop next-generation repair capabilities for GE HA gas turbines.

GE aims to expand its HA and Aeroderivative Repair Business to handle more complex repairs on HA turbines—including repair on high-tech components, such as HA nozzles and blades. Four new lean lines to repair the HA Hot Gas Path components were also added to support the global 9HA component repairs demand. By the fall of 2022, GRSS will also be qualified to support the 7HA HGP components repair within the Asia region.

The new AMRT Center focuses on advanced manufacturing applications, adaptive machining, joining capabilities, and inspection technologies. The AMRT Center is also in the process of establishing hydrogen fluoride ion cleaning capabilities which is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.

GRSS, as well as other repair shops in Asia, such as PT. GE Nusantara Turbine Services Shop Indonesia, forms part of GE’s network of local repair capabilities for heavy duty and aeroderivative gas turbines in the region.
