KEEPING THE POWER ON WITH CONDITION BASED MAINTENANCE
Power and utilities companies are experiencing higher maintenance costs than ever before, running their assets close to their operational limits to keep pace with demand. This places a significant importance on critical assets performing as they should, an unexpected breakdown can result in costly downtime and high repair costs.
If you are responsible for keeping machines working in the power and utilities industry, you will understand how important it is that your assets are available. The challenge is to determine the best way to monitor the performance of your assets while considering risk and cost, which is why many turn to Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) when opting to improve equipment reliability.
The decision to implement CBM can depend on several factors, but a greater return on investment is often seen if your mine is experiencing some of the reliability challenges listed below.
