Cost of Ownership
The cost of purchasing a gas turbine is only a small portion of the life-cycle costs of the equipment. In particular, the costs of operation could exceed the initial purchase price by far depending on the type of equipment used and its mode of operation. Therefore, we will look into the total costs of ownership and highlight various aspects to be considered for an optimization from the point-of-view of a customer. The optimized total cost of ownership depends ultimately very much on the specific project conditions.
