Hyperion Power provides specialized Forensic Engineering Services to Inkia Energy Chile
(Dec 2019) Hyperion Power Services was recently engaged by Inkia Energy (www.inkiaenergy.com) to provide on-site forensic engineering services at the Colmito Power Plant site in Chile. The study included onsite inspection and borescopic examination of a Rolls Royce Trent 60 aeroderivative gas turbine, and performance of a Root Cause Analysis (RCA) Study to determine the reason for a series of technical issues.
Following the onsite inspection, the turbine was moved for repairs at the Rolls Royce facility in the UAE where Hyperion Power Services consultants witnessed the disassembly, performed various tests on the equipment to establish the mode of failure, and witnessed the reassembly of the unit for its return to Chile. Hyperion Power Services consultants were also on site to witness the arrival, installation, startup and commissioning of the repaired turbine.
Hyperion Power Services has many years of accumulated experience in conducting root cause analysis studies following several analytical methods using the Keppler Tregoe RCA approach.
