– Provide tools, tackles and equipment required for O&M of the plant except special tools and equipment supplied with the construction contract.
POWER PLANT MAINTENANCE
SPP power plant maintenance philosophy consists of:
a) Daily Maintenance, which covers routine testing to be performed according to instruction manuals on component/equipment;
b) Emergency maintenance, which is a corrective maintenance to be performed when failure occurs;
c) Scheduled maintenance, which is a preventive maintenance to be performed with component/equipment in shut-down condition.
In order to minimize forced outages duration, emergency maintenance requires a proper available stock of spare parts.
Scheduled maintenance is performed on the basis of a maintenance plan which covers, in principle, the plant life.
Such maintenance plan is designed to keep planned unavailability within prescribed values.
