Rotating equipment is essential for gas and oil processing plants. The designers as well as the operating and maintenance staff are usually confronting with major issues regarding the reliability, optimization and continues improvement of rotating equipment. The course presents the recent technological aspects in operation best practices, preventive and predictive maintenance that enhance the reliability of major rotating equipment mainly, gas turbines, pumps, blowers and fans. The course crosses the boundaries from the fundamental information to top notch in the recent technological achievement in this field.

During the course participant’s discussion, comments, bringing up their own problems are welcomed and encouraged.
