A high performing plant is one that is safe, efficient, reliable, and profitable and there are many critical success factors that come into play when it comes to striving for excellence.
The philosophies cascading into the management systems and processes influences all 4 elements of what it takes to be a high performer. Without a meticulously designed and executed CMMS resulting from this, plants are subject to increased risk of equipment failure, loss of production, and excessive maintenance costs – which will directly impact the safety integrity and performance of the plant.
To truly optimise a plant’s maintenance and materials regime and unlock the associated benefits that come with it, it is key to build this regime using reliable, structured, and quality master data. Realising the need to have this in place, Add Energy were contracted by an international energy company to deliver a global maintenance optimisation project where we were tasked with enriching the CMMS data and optimising the maintenance management regime, and associated spare parts in excess of 1.3 million equipment tags.
To assure the right level of preventative and predictive maintenance and inspection, on the right equipment, was being done with the right materials, at the right time – no more, no less. Achieved through:
The Add Energy team was contracted to deliver the review, enrichment, and optimisation of their global approach to maintenance and integrity management. This included:
Having complete visibility of their equipment, and how important it is, has been instrumental in building the foundations for achieving maintenance excellence. The company now has confidence that they are maintaining equipment at an optimum level and ensuring the risk profiles are still being managed.
Plant reliability and safety integrity of their facilities are of the most noticeable outputs of this project; not only are they setting record reliability statistics, but they are achieving this with optimised levels of maintenance, done at the right time, in a globally consistent manner.
As a by-product to the safety integrity and reliability benefits, this client also benefited from some significant cost savings, including:
