Having operated out of Aberdeen since 1992, Rolls Wood Groupís Olympus Project has extensive experience in all industrial types of Olympus Gas Generators.

Rolls Wood Group is Rolls-Royceís preferred and only approved overhaul & repair facility.

Rolls Wood Group Olympus Project can provide Overhauls and Repairs, Field Service, Heavy Maintenance, Inspections, Troubleshooting, Onsite/Offsite and Onshore/Offshore support for the full range of Rolls-Royce Olympus Gas Generators and associated SK Range of Power Turbines.

Rolls Wood Groupís dedicated Olympus team offer their expertise for future repair, overhaul and field support for the world wide fleet of engines and their associated SK power turbines.

In addition, customers have also benefited from the wide range of innovative repair processes developed in-house to compliment the repair schemes originally developed offered by the original equipment manufacturer.

The Olympus Engine

The Rolls-Royce range of Olympus Industrial gas generator engines was derived from the aero engine which powered the Avro Vulcan. Later developments were used in the Concorde SST and TSR2 aircraft.

Olympus Turbine engine components

The Olympus engines produce between 17Ĺ and 27 megawatts of power and are used in power generation applications around the world. There are currently 11 offshore installations and 122 onshore.†

Applications vary from open cycle gas turbine configurations to efficient combined cycle operations using waste heat recovery for district heating and can run on either distillate fuel, natural gas or both.
