RENOVETEC has published the book GAS TURBINES: ASSEMBLY, COMMISSIONING, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF TURBINES, a book that collects all the information on turbines that requires a technical of field to perform their work. 

Since in a mid of the last century began to design the first gas turbines for electricity generation, turbines have been located in a privileged position for power generation, and in the last twenty years they have staged a dramatic increase of the performance of these teams that today already almost makes that they compete with internal combustion engines even in open cycle.

This book gathers all the field  information that has RENOVETEC for technicians already working in this subject and professionals who want to start their work with turbines have useful information and practice when it comes to assembling, comissioning, operate or maintain these turbines.

It is not a book of turbine design, subject to which numbers the market excellent quality books already exist. Neither is a basic book that describe the components of a turbine: it is a field  manual, a 'survival manual ' for professional that deal is in its day to day with this type of equipment or that van to face is by first time and want know of form early them problems with which will have that deal.

The book addresses, in chapters separated, the description basic of them turbines, the principle of operation, the mounting and them aspects to have in has, the process of put underway, the main maneuvers to which is faces the operator of a plant, and all a series of chapters dedicated to the maintenance, from them main troubleshooting until the evaluation of the technical state , with special dedication to preventive maintenance activities and to implement predictive techniques.

Is a basic book, in the library of a professional dedicated to the world of the generation power.
