The rotor shaft of an 8-1KT-2 turbine broke on a large oil sands plant. This led to the shutdown of the Coker 8-1 off-gas compressor which, in turn, required the plant to shut down the entire coker.
An interim solution was employed, which allowed the Coker to operate temporarily. The arm was then repaired and operated without incident.
MDD was hired to quantify the losses associated with this event.
