Bolt Tightening Training


The overall purpose of the course is to provide practical training in bolt tightening and shimming techniques and tools specific to Siemens Gamesa. Through the use of different types of exercises performed individually and/or in small groups the ability to safely and competently perform torquing and tensioning of bolts as well as shimming are achieved.


The following topics are covered:

  • Introduction
  • Recap of eLearning curriculum
  • Practical tasks:
    – Torque wrenches
    – Hydraulic torque tools
    – Hydraulic tension tools
    – Shimming


Upon completion of the course the participants are able to:
- Know how to find documentation applicable to torqueing, tensioning and shimming
- Skilled in using torque wrenches correctly to tighten bolts
- Skilled in inspecting, assembling/dismantling and adjusting the hydraulic torque and tensioning tools
- Skilled in using hydraulic torque and tensioning tools correctly to tighten bolts using the two-stage bolt tightening procedure
- Skilled in inspecting, measuring and filling in checklist as part of shimming
- Know how to use shimming tools for filling air gaps by following the applicable procedure
Upon completion of the course the participant have obtained the following competencies:
- Select technical manuals and documentation for bolt tightening and shimming tasks to be performed under supervision
- Safely operate specialized tools used for bolt tightening and shimming
- Suitably fill out appropriate checklists when working in the turbine
