Gas Turbine Market : Competitive Position

Cumulative Gas Turbine Additions • GE and Siemens are the major two
EMEA, 5MW and Above players - typically account for
6% around three quarters of the total
EMEA market for gas turbines

Service Focus in Gas Turbine Area

Organization Type Gas Turbine Service Focus

ALSTOM Power OEM Focuses predominantly on own make turbines. Small
industrial turbine business sold to Siemens and hence
do not focus on servicing those
General Electric OEM While GE tries to maximize the aftermarket share of
its own make of gas turbines, it is also trying to
capture a share of repair and parts supply market for
Alstom, Siemens and Mitsubishi gas turbine makes

Siemens OEM Supply of spare parts for own models and servicing all
makes of gas turbines
Pratt & Whitney OEM Maintenance, overhaul, repair and spare parts both
for its own make and other brands (GE and Siemens)
Rolls Royce OEM Supply of spare parts and service for own models only
Service Focus in Gas Turbine Area
Organization Type Gas Turbine Service Focus
Wood Group Non- Maintenance, repair and reengineered parts for
OEM GE, Alstom and Siemens gas turbines
Sulzer Elbar Non- Replacement parts and repair of heavy duty and
OEM small gas turbines of Alstom, GE, Westinghouse
and Siemens models
Thomassen Turbine Non- Supply of spare parts and services for GE Frame
Systems (Ansaldo) OEM 6B and 9E
Fortum Non- Only servicing of turbines. Procures components
OEM from OEMs/non-OEMs as per end user preference

Services Market Trends in Key Countries
• Largest gas turbines services market in Europe
• Driven by deregulation and presence of IPPs
• Renewed expansion of generation capacity
• Big presence of independent service providers forced OEM price reductions
• Some investment in gas turbine turbines due to retiring of lignite capacity and
growth in wind power
• Recent entry of services arms of big utilities
• Limited work for independents due to strong allegiance to OEMs
• Limited potential due to large nuclear base and promotion of renewables
• Delays in full privatisation of EDF and full deregulation
Trends in the Different Markets
• Explosive growth in combined cycle power plants
• Continued expansion of natural gas grid
• Limited presence of independent service providers but strong interest from
• Extensive repowering programme converting from oil-fired to CCGT plants
• High electricity prices drive IPP investments
• Utility interest in outsourcing
• Relatively mature with limited expansion opportunities
• Established presence of independent service providers
• Mature market with limited gas grid – focus on renewables and nuclear
Outsourcing Trends

Share of Responses

Share of plants with full maintenance contracts / LTSAs in 35-50% range

Spain is highest due to newer fleet
Outsourcing Trends
Proliferation of LTSAs – benefits
• LTSAs reduce cashflow uncertainties
• Allows operators to benefit from latest technology innovations
• Provides assurance that a rapidly changing technology will continue to be
supported by the service providers and that spare parts will be available
• Raises the re-sale value of the plant

Future trends
• Fleet management structure due to internationalisation of utilities
• Focus on “value packages” where value to operator is clearly measured
• Greater partnership approach between service provider and operator
• Towards full O&M contracts (mainly industrial plants)
Key Challenges for Gas Turbine Service Providers
Growing competition among service providers
• Greater strategic focus of the OEMs
• Service arms of major utilities

Pressure on prices
• Has affected prices for gas turbine spare parts in particular

Volatile gas and electricity prices

• Reduces long-term planning for power plant fleet
• Lower electricity prices reduce investment in industrial plants
Key Challenges for Gas Turbine Service Providers
Deregulation of European electricity markets
• Has introduced greater uncertainty
• Delays investments in new power plants

More cycling and 2-shifting

• Greater wear and tear
• Affects maintenance intervals
• Greater uncertainly of how to price long-term service contracts

Adding value for the client

• Bundling of services
• Guarantees on availability, heat rate, output etc.
• Moves towards complete power plant asset management
Focus of Gas Turbine Improvements
Key Areas of Future Improvements

Importance for Gas Turbine Operators

Turbine Performance

Emissions Reductions

Fuel Flexibility

Response Speed

Key Areas: Turbine Performance
Key Improvements

• Efficiency: Most important area for improvement – Of particular interest in

Asia/Latin America/Middle East as running on baseload. Trade-off between
higher efficiency and possibly increased O&M expenditure and lower
• Reliability: another key area – particularly important for European operators
who prefer it over efficiency gains, preference for tried and tested machines.
Also critical for industrial/oil and gas users.
• Availability: Through
 Shorter overhauls – Assumes greater importance in very competitive markets. Of
little importance to the oil & gas industry.
 Longer outage intervals – users want to see changes in yearly increments due
to preference for certain times of year
Key Areas: Emissions
Key Drivers
• Legislation: In compliance with government policies in various countries,
emission limits in most countries are expected to be less than 15 ppm by 2010
and possibly below 10ppm by 2020.
• Preference among internationally-based IPPs and large industrial operators
(eg oil majors) to purchase and install the most advanced machinery across
their fleet. Local utilities even in developing countries normally follow as well.

Greatest interest in lower emissions turbines from

North American operators. European limits
expected to be reduced to 9-12ppm in longer term
Key Areas: Fuel Flexibility
Key Drivers
• Price: High natural gas prices act as a driver for fuel flexibility. Currently on
the way down.
• Existence of interruptible contracts: Some operators pay a premium for
uninterruptible supply and are hence keen on greater fuel flexibility. Particular
interest from UK, Italy and Netherlands.
• Deregulation: Movement away from long-term gas supply arrangements will
open up greater potential for alternative fuels.

Greatest interest will be from developing

countries where gas quality is more varied
Key Areas: Greater Response Speeds
Growth of wind Deregulation Increase need
power for flexible
of grids with


High hydro
power capacity

speeds in highly
integrated power

Overall of relatively limited importance – current

levels seen as sufficient in most cases

• Gas turbine market has recovered from its slump

• Strong growth in mid-range turbine demand in medium term and large
turbines in longer term
• Booming Middle Eastern market will outpace Europe over the next few
• Greatest demand for very large gas turbines to come from Asia
• Services market is very attractive to both OEMs and independents
• Long-term maintenance agreements continue to expand
• Desired improvements from operators’ perspective: Reliability is key for
European users – lower emissions and greater fuel flexibility also important
