Parts of the latest design, incorporating improvements developed over 19 years of operating experience, can be utilized on the Model 7001B gas turbines.

This paper describes the initial application of the 7001E technology to an entire turbine retrofit. Component design improvements, interfaces, and limitations are described as well as expected reliability improvements.

Emphasis will be given to Field Service Engineering experience in installing this first change, since labor can be a significant part of the conversion.
