CLIENT SPECIFICS

Following fluctuations on the energy market, the generation of electricity from gas became difficult for several years, even with high performance combined cycle plants. The IPP’s therefore tried to reduce their OPEX.
Maintenance works on main equipment (gas steam turbines, generator) is usually carried out by the OEM.

PONTICELLI’S CHALLENGES

Carry out the works to the same level of quality as the OEM’s according to the manufacturer’s intervention range.

SMRI, a regional company, with its know-how in assembly works, mechanical skills, ability to follow the OEM’s assembly-maintenance ranges, and its nearby mechanical workshops was able to intervene directly with the IPP by simply supervising the OEM, therefore significantly reducing shutdown costs.
