Gowrings Continental BV was founded in 1973 by the late mr J.A. Steenman with the support of Gowrings Ltd. of Reading in the UK. From 1989 onwards his sons, Joop and Albert Steenman took over the company and developed it into the on- and offshore Gas Turbine maintenance, spares and service company of today's standards together with a dedicated team.
Gowrings Continental BV has worked for 40 years for the industrial division of Rolls Royce PLC in Ansty, Rolls Wood Group in Aberdeen and what used to be Ruston Gas Turbines and what is now the Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Ltd. located in Lincoln.
In addition Gowrings Continental represents a world known Gas Turbine packager Centrax from Newton Abbott who are a packager of Gas Turbine gensets in a power range of 3,9 to 64 MW, utilising both RR and Siemens gas turbine driver units.
Gowrings has a gas turbine overhaul facility adjacent to their offices in Maasdam in order to generate a very short turn around time for repair and overhaul work. Gowrings has a long experience in overhauling the Siemens TB, SGT200 and SGT100 engines in their own workshop where they also employ several gas turbine engineers with a great gas turbine multidisciplinary expertise including experienced Control Engineers.
