Life cycle cost
When developing new facilities, often times the key focus is on design, engineering, procurement and construction. Less attention is given to lifecycle cost of operations and maintenance. This leads to high start-up cost, increases the time to get installations at optimum production capacity and results in suboptimal lifecycle maintenance cost.
We help assess your readiness to successfully start up, maintain and operate your new facility. Our field proven methodology is structured in modules that can be selected à la carte, depending on your needs.
Applying this approach helps you minimize start-up issues and asset lifecycle cost, and enhance for investor confidence in your business case.
Providing O&M services to new facilities has opened our eyes to the omissions made during the EPC phase. We have turned these experiences into robust practices, to make sure that these aren't forgotten during your EPC project.
Based upon our experiences, we have developed field proven tools, methods, and blueprints that are ready to be applied on your project.
We have bundled our experiences into different modules. These cover topics that need to be addressed prior to a facility's startup:
- Organizational readiness
- Maintenance readiness
- Operational readiness
- Supply chain readiness
- Information management readiness
- Spare part readiness.
Proven asset readiness
Ready-to-Go is for asset owners that don't frequently start up new facilities and thereby might forget essential elements required for smooth start-up and lowest life cycle cost.
Considering that EPC contractors are often incentivized to focus on CAPEX reduction, it is essential that good input is given to EPC contractors early in the design stage, so that truly optimal lifecycle costs can be achieved.
We are ready to provide input in those areas where you need support!
