The shutdown of this 33 MW unit is due to more stringent emissions laws coming into effect, and not due to any mechanical issues.
The control room is very modern with several operating manuals obviously in use, so they are most likely well updated. The control system used in this plant is an ABB “Process Portal” system with “Composer” for easy programming.
SAP is used for the maintenance tracking system in this plant. The plant maintenance and maintenance records appear excellent and is also reflected in the high availability numbers.
Documentation is excellent. Operating manuals, overhaul reports, original design manuals, and P&IDs were all observed during the inspection. The overhaul reports are all done by very reputable companies and are extremely detailed.
There is a preservation plan already prepared for activation when this 33 MW unit is shut down. It will be maintained such that it will remain in operational condition, similar to stand-by status.
