Modernization of MS3002 gas turbines produced by GE from 1951 to 1973 has been accomplished with the application of advanced technology components in a redesigned turbine hot section. Texas Eastern installed the first modernization package in 1986 and now has 10 units in service totalling more than 135,000 operating hours. This paper presents the user’s motivation to refurbish 30-year-old gas turbines, including details of the uprate installation and subsequent operating experience. Specifics of the advanced technology components in these units are provided including their impact on unit performance and reliability.
