Before After

Outage Planning Services

Pre-Outage Planning

A Customized Plan

Most power producers are short-staffed and do not have the time and sometimes the expertise to prepare a comprehensive outage plan and workscope.  That’s why we offer the option of providing our comprehensive Pre-Outage Planning Service independent of the award of the contract for inspection and repairs.

Our field project teams have the breadth of knowledge and experience to produce the highest quality planning product, with a workscope customized to your unit and its specific signature.

One of our qualified Technical Directors will visit your plant and prepare a customized report for your specific unit.  The report will contain everything needed to plan your internal preparations for the outage and to prepare a comprehensive Request for Quote for the inspections and repairs.

 

A Basis For Your RFQ’s 

Your customized Pre-Outage Plan will include everything you need to prepare a comprehensive Request for Quote for the necessary inspections and repairs.  We will compile a summary of the findings from past inspections and develop a list of recommendations for potential repair work.  We will prepare a comprehensive and detailed suggested Statement of Work for the outage, based on these findings and observations from a unit walk-down.  Incorporating this information into your Request for Quote packages will yield “apples to apples” cost comparisons and few if any surprises on implementation.

 

A Task List For Your Facility

We will review your spare parts inventory and compile a list of recommended parts to have on hand prior to the outage.  We will recommend disposal of any expired or unusable spare parts.

We will also prepare a Critical Path Method schedule based on the defined workscope.  You can use this schedule to plan your expected outage duration and coordinate with any other activities to be conducted during this downtime.

 

What We Provide

The Pre-Outage Planning Package includes:

  • Outage History Review: We review your past outage reports to determine pending or implemented outage recommendations and any changes that may have been made to your unit.
  • Unit Walk-down: We perform a detailed walk-down of the unit, visually inspecting the components and auxiliaries that will help to develop a detailed pre-outage scope of work.
  • Customized Outage Workscope: Formulated from the on-site analysis of your unit, past outage reports, and known issues supplemented by discussion of particulars with you and your staff, we develop a workscope unique to the specifics of your unit and its current condition.
  • Outage Schedule: We take your customized workscope and create a comprehensive Critical Path Method schedule. This exceptional tool outlines a reasonable outage schedule and projected duration, and it can be used as a guide to measure the performance of your outage contractor.
  • Parts List: We compile a “recommended to buy” list determined by a physical review of your unit, prior outage report recommendations, and review of available inventory.

 

In summary, our Pre-Outage Planning deliverables to you will be:

  1. A scope of work tailored to your equipment and outage needs.
  2. A parts inventory and suggested purchase list (to support outage or emergency needs).
  3. A document to assist in the preparation of the scope for RFQ / bid documents.

Shaft Machining

Our Field Machining Division recently completed another successful shaft machining project.  The project included initial machining, sleeving of the shaft, and final machining to bring the shaft back to OEM specifications.  The end result was another satisfied customer whose equipment was back up and running as designed.  Great job team!

Contact Us today if you have any upcoming Field Machining projects that we could provide an estimate for.

Summer Projects are Heating Up!

We’ve been going strong all summer!  Hard to believe August is almost here.  We’ve had our crews at 32 different customer sites across the U.S. so far this summer… and counting.  Typically summertime brings a slow down for maintenance as turbines and generators across the country are in full operation for peak run season.  But we’ve had a solid summer, and we’re gearing up for a busy fall outage season.  If there are any turbine maintenance inspection or repair projects you’re considering for this fall please give us a call – we’re ready and willing to help however we can!
