Effective Maintenance Strategies Driving Maximum Plant Efficiency

Maintenance management has always been guided by the need to maximise the availability, quality, and effectiveness of your equipment, and to do this at the lowest possible cost in terms of machine and material.

This discussion will explore the various strategies available to ensure a reliable fleet of assets through planned, preventive, predictive, proactive maintenance. We will also discuss how, under the shadow of the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, plants have managed their planned outages considering the restrictions on numbers and access imposed by governments around the world.

Digital Solutions for Optimal Asset Performance

Digital technologies are proving themselves and changing the face of the power sector. From plant maintenance to operational efficiency, pragmatic adoption of digital technologies, while gradual in their uptake across ASEAN’s plants, are vital to ensure enhanced machine and personnel performance. Digital twins, AI, the IoT, predictive maintenance, robotics, and “Big Data” analytics are already providing measurable returns to early adopters.

This session will explore the technologies available and how they are currently being and best utilised to improve operational flexibility, efficiency, reduce planned and unplanned outages, and better adapt to todays’ changing power sector.
