Our maintenance strategies reduce cost and risk
Keep your plant operating at the optimum level. Our independent inspection and data give you a sound basis for quality decision making. We can optimize maintenance strategy across individual plant and whole plant items, reduce outage scope and maintenance induced failures, stretch overhaul intervals and increase confidence in condition assessment. Our maintenance and repair strategies are OEM-independent, based upon actual plant condition and operational priority, saving your time, resources and CAPEX. Partner with us to reduce your commercial complexity - our outage solutions bring together a broad range of in-house technical disciplines and commercial expertise.

Plant assessment and monitoring
Optimise the health of your plant machinery and maximise availability. Our monitoring provides independent diagnosis of root cause issues. Our analytics solutions convert plant data into knowledge that enables teams to prioritizse, plan and execute an optimized maintenance strategy and reduce unplanned outages.
Maintenance strategy and optimisation
Minimise your operational costs and maximise asset investment returns with an effectively managed maintenance strategy. We can reduce risks from the impact of flexible operating regimes, and deliver strategies for plant preservation. Use our independence from OEM’s to support the re-negotiation of long term service agreements.
Outages, inspection and integrity
Optimise outages and reduce operational costs with our careful planning, risk management and targeted inspection strategies. We can help you to increase the time between outages to improve availability. We also maximise component life with independent advice from industry leading experts
Maintenance, execution and repairs
Our skilled engineering teams have the experience to manage the complete range of tasks in overhaul, refurbishment and repair. With world leading materials and corrosion experts to advise on maintenance strategies, and a dedicated repair facility equipped to handle components up to 100 tonnes.
We independently identify, validate and supervise engineering solutions, contractors and equipment providers to give you confidence in your supplier quality.
We understand how to identify, assess and mitigate risks across the entire asset life cycle. Our tailored solutions will also help you to reduce spend with risk based maintenance scoping and challenging of planned measures.
Repairs costs of €1.23M saved for gas plant
Our client had a transformer failure at its UK plant. We gave an insight into the cause and damage and assessed components at risk. We confirmed suitability of spares and oversaw recommissioning. With our support, our client saved €1.23m in repair costs and downtime.
Increased outage periods for coal plant
A client with both coal and gas-fired plants needed to reduce costs due to challenging power markets. Using our in-house optimum pressure systems inspection strategies we proposed an increase in outage periods, which enabled our client to extend inspections by one year on four units and by three years on three other units.
Vibration analysis solves offshore wind farm issue
When a vibration issue occurred in our client’s offshore wind farm, we used our owner operator experience and expert vibration analysis competencies to quickly and accurately solve the issue with minimum loss of generation and risk to the asset.
Avoiding corrosion risks in waste to energy assets
Our client, a UK-based operator of several energy recovery plants, assigned us to review the boiler water chemistry regime at several of its plants. We identified the chemistry regime and that the targets established by the EPC contractor were not appropriate for the plant design and would introduce corrosion risks in the water-steam cycle. Equipment performance problems were also identified. We are working with the client to ensure that risks are minimized at existing and future sites and avoid forced shutdowns and reduced efficiency caused by corrosion and boiler tube failures.
Root cause analysis of electrical transformer
Our industrial customer in Germany asked us to identify the cause of the failure of a 25 MVA, 30/10 kV transformer supplying power to an air compressor. We carried out a detailed analysis of the damage inside the transformer mechanisms and detected the off-load tap changer as the root cause of the failure. We expedited our analysis so there was minimum delay for the client, and we supported them by finding a back-up transformer to avoid further disruption to the plant process.
