EPS’s new engineer comes with a wealth of Siemens SGT 400 OEM experience

Mark Weston joins EPS this week bringing with him a wealth of Siemens SGT 400 experience alongside the rest of the Siemens SGT range.

“I previously worked for Siemens Energy for more than 9 years. During my time at SE I gained a lot of experience primarily on Siemens SGT 400, operating with PCS7 control systems. This was mostly in the role of resident engineer where fault rectification is of utmost importance to keep production going.

During my time with SE I also gained experience on all other current gas turbines in the SE fleet including working on Siemens Simatic Step7, Allen Bradly Controllogix and Rustronic MKII. Other activities I gained experience in were gas turbine and package servicing, retrofits on control panels and package instrumentation and installation of new units.”

Mark has worked all over the world and in fact met with our own engineers on Shell Brunei’s Champion 7 platform during his time as resident engineer there.

We welcome Mark on board and look forward to introducing him to our customers.

How can EPS  help with your SGT 400:

  • Onsite fault finding
  • DLE tuning
  • Engine failure analysis/customer representation at witness inspections (Our engineers are based in Lincoln)
  • Engine test witnessing
  • Spares supply

With all the Siemens range of controls systems covered in-house, we can help with DLE tuning, start issues, running problems and much more. All our engineers have come from a Siemens OEM background which gives them a wealth of knowledge on their products. One of our engineers was heavily involved when the Siemens SGT 400 first went out into the field so has seen many of the common issues that occur on site.

We also have significant experience with engine failure analysis, and have represented customers as a technical specialist during witness inspections. This can be helpful if a customer does not have engineers with specific experience of the Siemens Lincoln engine range or are a significant distance from the Lincoln site.

We can attend engine testing to ensure that all requirements are met, and any parameters out of specification are captured/resolved.

EPS can provide many of the package components for the Siemens SGT 400 so get in touch to see if we can help you.

Siemens SGT 400

The Siemens SGT 400 is a type of industrial gas turbine. It’s part of Siemens’ line-up of industrial gas turbines and is often used in power generation and mechanical drive applications.
