GE Jenbacher | Gas Engine | Upgrades | Repair | Overhaul

Gas engine maintenance typically falls into two key categories; scheduled and unscheduled.

Scheduled Maintenance

Attendance for replacement of consumables such as oil and filters typically occurs every 1,000 – 2,000 operational hours.

Scheduled intermediate services occur at 10,000 hour intervals.


Finally, the GE Jenbacher gas engine has a full overhaul at 60,000 hours of operation. At the 60,000 hour overhaul ideally the engine will be taken away from the site to be stripped down and fully serviced with specialised machinery. This either occurs at the authorised rebuild centre in Liverpool, UK or Jenbach, Austria depending upon the geographical location of the unit. If we are provided sufficient notice, a reconditioned swing engine can be brought in at the corresponding time for the engine overhaul. This provides the lowest down-time for your generation plant.

Alternatively where it is not possible to remove the engine, it can be overhauled in situ. This is not an ideal situation and will take longer than using a swing-engine.

Unscheduled Maintenance


When your engine is overhauled it may be possible to upgrade all components to the latest versions. This may provide additional benefits to the customer from increased generating efficiency. Please speak to your local Clarke Energy office to determine whether there are any upgrades available for your generation equipment.
