In the energy industry, the focus is on
planning operations and producing
kilowatt hours at the lowest possible
cost. Service downtime should be
scheduled so as to minimize production
losses. To minimize the cost per kilowatt
hour produced, maintenance organization
should also be balanced in the right way.
Of course, the conditions and solutions vary depending
on the type of power. A nuclear power plant will be
stopped annually for maintenance. In order to avoid production losses, maintenance work must be completed during these scheduled downtimes. The wind power industry is subject to different conditions. In the summer, winds are usually relatively weak, so in order not to lose valuable kilowatt hours, the maintenance organization should be ready to perform the requested maintenance during low wind periods, and also prepared to rapidly correct any faults that may arise during the rest of the year.
In the energy industry, we help our clients find the best maintenance strategy, minimize operational costs per kilowatt hour, procure components on a life cycle basis, and review spare parts logistics so that maintenance always can be completed on time. Fundamentally, the goal is to optimize the organization or products to minimize operational costs and, above all, increase production.
