June 10, 2019

Portsmouth, NH June 10, 2019 –Enventure has been awarded a contract to strategize and implement the Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) for 40+ power generation systems for a large producer of Thermal Power. The objectives of this engagement are – to develop a Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), streamlined maintenance strategy, robust spares stocking strategy and precise work instructions for each equipment associated with all power generation systems.

The client is building one of the largest Thermal Power Generation plant, powered by the supercritical coal-fired power, which is set to be complete by 2020. Currently, at full swing, the plant is producing over 1200 MW energy.

The major hurdles for the client are:


  • Greenfield implementation and experience: The need is to build a RCM strategy. Since the project is a greenfield implementation, there is no past data as a reference. The asset strategy has to be developed with prior domain knowledge considering un-interrupted power generation requirement and asset criticality.
  • Scalability and Cost: The project implementation is scheduled to be complete within six months, and there was a need for the highest skill levels in Asset Performance Management. Amongst the various options, the client chose to sign up with Enventure having domain experts available on-demand. While compared to hire resources on contract, train, and then relieve them is otherwise expensive.

Under the terms of the contract, Enventure will identify and analyze each system comprised of multiple equipment. The scope of engagement includes the strategy and implementation of RCM by performing these activities:

  • Develop a maintenance strategy for each equipment which includes function, functional failure, failure part, failure mode, failure cause and criticality.
  • Formulate a control strategy (maintenance action)to define equipment servicing frequency and on-going condition monitoring along with work instruction, which results in maximizing Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
  • Develop a system level maintenance manual and define limits and maintenance recommendation for all its associated equipment.
  • Generate recommendations on spare part requirement, based on the maintenance action. Design a spare part stock holding manual that covers spare parts level characteristics such as OEM / part number details, reorder level, max holding level, similar spare parts quantity, frequency of spares requirement.

“Enventure’s commitment to modernize asset management practices and expertise in asset reliability, condition monitoring, and sustainable maintenance strategy, has helped asset intensive global organizations,” said Kiran Sivadas, EVP, Enventure Engineering. “We are honoured to work with one of the largest producers of Thermal Power and enhance their asset optimization strategy by delivering ROI based maintenance plan.

Enventure brings to its work for the asset-intensive organization experience with sustainable asset management, including an array of services such as condition monitoring, plant maintenance, and spare parts strategy implementation to date.
