OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF POWER PLANTS

Operation and Maintenance that provides assertive & accurate reliability and availability to our customers

Andina Turbomecánica relies on its experience, and that of its teams, to offer all types of Operation and Maintenance services for power generation plants.

Services

The reliability and availability of a Thermal Power Plant depend first on the design and quality of its assembly then on the unit(s) operation i.e. avoiding fast load rate, unnecessary sudden maneuvers or working with abnormal parameters for long periods of time, which fall under operators’ responsibility. Plant technical issues are mainly due to the way they are operated. Eventually reliability and availability depend on maintenance practices

Our Objective

Andina Turbomecánica target is to design an Operation and Maintenance plan that analyzes all possible failures in order to prevent them and deliver to our customers the highest reliability and availability of the Thermal Power Plant. Today we suffer yesterday’s mistakes, or enjoy the right guesses
