Two rotor discs failed in a 84-MW unit installed in a power plant. The failure was evidenced by large circumferential fractures of blades attachments in both discs. Disc failure was evaluated by investigating rotor operation history, steady state stress analysis by finite element (FEA), disc fracture surface fractography and deposit evaluation. It was found that this disc failure was driven by stress corrosion due to significant static stresses, humid ambient operation and disc material susceptibility. To correct disc failure and restore turbine original characteristics, a disc welding repair procedure was developed. This repair process was implemented and rotor discs restored by weld deposition, post weld heat treatment and machining. As a result, the rotor was returned to service and its useful life extended.
