Bagram Airfiled (BAF) CTG-01 Turbine Engine Overhaul
Bagram Airfield (BAF), Afghanistan
Kaiyuh Services LLC (KSL) under contract from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) – Philadelphia District
Client Needs and Requirements:
Solar Turbine #1 (CTG#1) reached it’s 30,000-hour mark, which required an engine exchange. KSL was contracted by USACE (Philadelphia District) to perform this work and in-turn subcontracted ISI for turn-key services. Those turn-key services included the procurement, delivery, and installation of a new (or zero hour overhauled) Titan 130 (15MW) engine from Solar Turbines and return of the 30,000 hour engine back to Solar Turbines.
Challenges and ISI’s Response:
The contract had a 98-day period of performance and the contract was completed within 75-days. Logistics for this engine utilized multi-modal means (ground, sea, air) moving a large (25,000 lb) engine, which required multiple layers of coordination to meet schedule.
This work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget with no physical disruptions or power interruptions to Bagram Airfield.
Procurement of one Titan 130 refurbished engine, shipping from DeSoto, TX to Bagram Airfield, AFG, removal of existing engine, installation & commissioning of new engine, crating & shipping of old engine from Bagram Airfield, AFG to DeSoto, TX, and coordination of the movement of tools and personnel from Solar Turbines to site for commissioning efforts.
