As part of the complete OEM solution, Solar offers retrofit kits developed to upgrade your turbine, compressor, mechanical-drive or generator package sub-system. Particularly when planned at time of overhaul or maintenance intervention, kit-driven retrofits provide a fast, efficient, and cost-effective mechanism to revitalize and enhance your Solar turbine package.

Designed to improve package performance and efficiency, a retrofit kit can be used to rework any mechanical and electrical/controls systems and components of existing packages.
 

TYPES OF RETROFIT KITS
Sales Order Specific
Sales order specific retrofit kits are designed to meet special site or customer requirements and are tailored to a particular package. The kits can be installed by a Solar Field Service Representative or the customer.

Standard
Standard retrofit kits are developed to serve Solar's product line of gas turbines. These kits refer to a specific product line and are available "off-the-shelf" or with minor modifications which minimizes engineering design and development time. This results in a more cost-effective process and quicker kit delivery.
