Siemens—Gas Turbine Platform (Abu Dhabi)

When faced with the problem of reducing the weight of the Gas Turbine, Alstom Power decided to replace the steel platform structures with an equivalent in load bearing glass fibre which would be lighter. The first difficulty they had to overcome, however, was to select a specialist GRP manufacturing company which was also capable of providing both the structural calculations and drawings as well as having the ability to supply the end products which had to fit the existing prepared steel work. Racolin were able to fulfil the customer requirements and complete the project within a period of 8 months.

In 2004, Racolin Ltd were invited by Siemens, the new owners of Alstom’s Gas Turbine business, to visit Abu Dhabi and advise in the final stages of GRP assembly.
