Taking a proactive approach in the maintenance strategy of generation investments can improve the position of any project. The upkeep of CTGs, steam turbine generators, and other power generation-related equipment can be perceived as complex and lead to an attitude of complacency when choosing a maintenance strategy. However, choosing the correct maintenance approach from a programmatic perspective can have significant financial and time benefits for power producers. Employing a CBM strategy can allow end users to significantly extend the service life of components and/or parts.
In this whitepaper, we discuss:
- The advantages of conditional based maintenance strategy
- Original equipment manufacturer recommended major maintenance intervals
- Strategies to extend combustion turbine generator component life
- How to mitigate risks of a conditionally based major maintenance strategy
