Combined Heat and Power system
39.4% increase in exported power and 21.9% increase in availability
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) – LTSA
Combined Heat and Power – Long Term Service Agreements ensuring greater reliability and availability.
We offer Long Term Service Agreements (LTSA’s) for Combined Heat and Power Systems, predominately covering Natural Gas, Biogas and Landfill Gas. Recently we have seen a lot of interest from the Waste from Energy & gasification industries.
Our client already held one of our LTSA’s for their 8MW Weir – Allen Steam turbine and decided to add their 2 off 600kW 2G Biogas CHP systems to our scope.
Our scope includes all scheduled maintenance, all reactive maintenance activities, and optimisation of the equipment including its operating philosophy.
We constantly monitor performance parameters to ensure that all the equipment we are responsible for is operating at its most efficient level. We track and trend data to identify abnormalities in equipment performance and improve efficiency, it is also used to predict any potential component failure.
We have a close working relationship with most OEM suppliers to ensure that we the equipment within our scope is maintained to the best possible level and, to insure competitive spares prices across the entire equipment range.
Safety is paramount and all maintenance activities are planned thoroughly to mitigate any risk to individuals and plant. We work closely with our clients to ensure that all safety documentation and guidelines, Risk assessments, method statements are in place prior to work commencing and keep in constant communication with our clients.
Our flexible planning procedures ensure that maintenance periods are always adhered to, despite any inconsistences in biogas supply.
24/7 technical and maintenance support for operators, allowing them to contact us with any concerns, providing critical support when it is required.
Since our LTSA agreement has been in place we have ensured greater than 98% availability of the equipment including maintenance periods. A significant improvement over the 76% availably of the preceding 2 years.
Our review of the operating philosophy versus gas availability yielded a 39.4% increase in exported power over the previous year.
