A method of installing into a machinery hall a gas turbine unit comprising a gas generator unit and a power turbine unit and forming a portion of a large capacity, gas-turbine powered electrical generating apparatus. The method is particularly intended for electric generating equipment having a capacity of at least 60 megawatts. To install the gas generator of such a unit in the hall and to couple it to the already-installed power turbine unit, the gas generator is moved horizontally into the machinery hall on roller devices. When the gas generator has been moved horizontally to the assembly site, some of the roller devices are removed, and concurrently with their removal a portion of the load is then transferred to an overhead travelling crane in such manner that the remaining roller devices and the overhead crane provide force couples which together support the entire weight of the gas generator and also readily permit adjustments in position of the gas generator so as to bring the central shaft pivot of the gas generator into its desired position relative to a central bearing of the power turbine unit. The method makes it possible to conveniently assemble the gas turbine unit to the power turbine unit without damage to the central bearing and without any need to provide an overhead crane of a capacity adequate to support the entire weight of the gas turbine unit.

A method of installing in a machinery hall a gas turbine apparatus for coupling mechanically to an electric power generator, the gas turbine comprising a power turbine unit whose output shaft is coupled to the input shaft of the generator and also comprising as a separate unit a gas generator unit which is to be connected to the power turbine with a gas-tight fitting by means of respective cooperating flanges and also with a protruding axial shaft on the gas generator which mates with a bearing in the power turbine unit, said method comprising the steps of: fixedly installing on supporting means in the machinery hall the power turbine unit and coupling said power turbine unit to the generator with the said bearing of said power turbine unit being oriented horizontally for coaxial alignment with said shaft of said gas generator, transporting the gas generator into the machinery hall and to the site of its assembly with the power turbine unit by rolling the gas generator horizontally on a plurality of roller means and with its entire weight supported in static equilibrium on the roller means, lifting one end of the gas generator slightly so as to permit the removal from thereunder of sufficient of the roller means to ensure that the roller means remaining do not provide static equilibrium of the gas generator, concurrently with the lifting step, supporting a portion of the weight of the gas generator from an overhead travelling crane which is attached to the gas generator at a point to provide, in cooperation with said remaining roller means, static equilibrium support of the gas generator, and repeatedly adjusting the height of said roller means and also the extent of lift provided by the travelling crane while concurrently moving said gas generator horizontally to bring the cooperating flanges on the gas generator and power turbine unit into abutting relationship with each other while said shaft concurrently is coaxially aligned with said bearing.
