Foundation bearing with heavy load spring elements

Gas and steam turbines are positioned on concrete foundations in order to technically guarantee their smooth operation and proper alignment. The entire cement foundation is mounted on spring elements which bear the total load of the block and the machines. Taking the spring rates of the elements into consideration, the required tuning frequency, and thereby the quality of the isolation, is structurally adjusted.  The foundation is placed during the assembly with cooperation of the commissioning engineers.
