Asset Management - Peru electrical plant
Structuring a management model suitable for the operation and maintenance of the two electrical plants located in the rainforest in the north of Peru was not an easy task. It had to include a practical focus to ensure the correct operation and maintainability of more than 700 maintainable assets (mechanical, electrical and instruments) at the electrical plants in a systematic and orderly manner throughout the first 72 months of the operation.
Stork was responsible for initiating the operation of the plants and to do so, implemented a long term management model for the Wärtsilä plants based on three main areas: Establish a culture of health and safety (HSE) as a priority, a competent team and the application of strategies and tools appropriate to the operational requirements of the plants. Each one of these elements has been key in the development and implementation of the good practices management system in maintenance engineering and reliability. This is based on an asset management model for the Operations & Maintenance service of the generation plants. Today, we find ourselves faced with established processes in which costs are optimised, risks are controlled and the operational performance exceeds the indicators agreed with the customer.
The satisfaction of the customer and the creation of value in the service have been Stork’s main focal point in consolidating tangible results since 2008 to the present, for example:
- Compliance with the operational and management indicators, with accumulated values in excess of the contracted target:
* Securities July 2015
- Reduction in fuel (HFO) consumption by more than $480,000 in 2014.
- Proactive focus (98%) on the execution of the maintenance plan.
- Overall optimisation in the consumption of spare parts in major maintenance by more than $500,000 in 2014.
