Replacement Runners

Improved Performance

CHC can provide as-kind and upgraded replacement runners and turbine components that will often outperform the original equipment. Our engineering team can design and retrofit an improved performance runner within the constraints of an existing powerhouse and ancillary equipment. CHC adopts a system solution for its upgrades: where required, parts are digitized, 3-D models are created, patterns and castings developed, and related parts upgraded to provide a proper system solution that will allow the plant owner to maximize the performance of the unit.
