RWE Power plant Turnaround
Scope of work
To ensure integrity and reliability of RWE’s combined heat and power plant Swentibold a four-yearly inspection is required. A four-week turnaround of the facility is planned for this.
RWE asked Stork to perform the inspection scope. After approval of the inspection scope, the scope for Balance of Plant activities was also awarded to Stork. This includes equipment services for the boiler, valves, fans, piping, etc. During the preparation of the turnaround, a leak was discovered in the boiler. In parallel with the TA, Stork Thermeq carried out the boiler repair in collaboration with the Stork project team.The preparation has taken place on a risk basis. Various risk mitigating measures have been taken on behalf of the customer in order to limit the turnaround-time, such as the reservation of welders, fitters, materials, etc.
As a result of the inspections and maintenance works the integrity of the Swentibold power plant is secured. The plant is compliant. Execution was provided with:
- High quality service
- High safety standards
- Single point of contact for the complete Turnaround
- Risk-based preparation
