CLASSIFICATION OF STEAM POWER PLANTS: CLASSIFICATION OF STEAM POWER PLANTS The steam power plants may be classified as follows: l stations. rial power stations or captive power stations Central stations: These stations is meant for general sale to the customers who wish to purchase it. GBI Research has released its research, "Thermal Power Maintenance Market to - Rising Electricity Demand and New Installations Stimulate Asia Pacific and Middle East Markets". The development of offshore wind power has become a pressing modern energy issue in which the UK is taking a major part, driven by the need to find new electrical power sources, avoiding the use of fossil fuels, in the knowledge of the extensive wind resource available around our islands and the fact that the environmental impact of offshore wind farms is likely to be low.   The primary maintenance strategy in accomplishing this is an effective preventive maintenance program. Maintenance activities that are planned and scheduled on a weekly basis cost 25% to 50% less than those that are performed in a reactive mode.

Whether the power stations have a maintenance strategy and what the benefits of this strategy are. Sub-objectives that supported the main objective were to: Obtain an overview of the maintenance strategy currently being used in power plants.

Identify industry or best practise for maintenance strategy used in power generating plants. Typically we see plants employing either run-to-failure (only fix after a breakdown) or preventive maintenance (on a predetermined schedule). However, depending on the value of the asset or its criticality in the plant’s operations, we may see this strategy escalated to predictive or.

Looking at maintenance requirements in the context of the functions of each asset (by seeking to preserve what the asset does rather than what it is) completely transforms the way in which the requirements are perceived.

Such a review changes the size, shape, and location of the foundations upon which the maintenance enterprise is built. A recent study by Jones Lang LaSelle highlights how a telecommunications company saw a % return on investment (ROI) when implementing a preventive maintenance plan.
