As governments seek to achieve the benefits of privatization and to drive down the price of electricity by introducing competition in generation, the role of those responsible for maintaining the power plant has changed radically. This text presents conference papers on the subject.


Part 1 Boiler techniques: in-situ valve seat replacements; spiral welding - cutting the cost of maintenance, but not the quality; beyond repair - cost-effective management of boiler tube failures; the use of novel diagnostic and retrofit design techniques to eliminate coal and ash storage failures. Part 2 Managing people: the ISO 9001 combined cycle gas turbine power station; developing a climate of collaboration and teamwork for outage time reduction; partnerships and alliancing - and the importance of a good business strategy; value added using focus group methodology. Part 3 Sweating the asset - 1: quantitative risk assessment and its role in plant maintenance decisions; cost-effective maintenance for the new millennium; Industrial Trent Genset - designing for life-cycle. Part 4 Turbogenerator techniques: problems with modern air-cooled generator stator windings; a new approach to turbine lubrication management; proper maintenance practices involving condenser cleaning and in-leakage inspection; troubleshooting bearing problems during the uprating of an existing steam turbine. Part 5 Condition monitoring: evolution of health monitoring for CCGT plant; condition monitoring of cooling tower fan gearboxes; permanent partial discharge assessment of power station high-voltage switchgear. Part 6 Sweating the asset - 2: an enterprise wide implementation of a maintenance/materials management systems; power station maintenance for safety and reliability; how to contract for a gas turbine major inspection.
