Operations & Maintenance

Challenges

From time to time utilities loose capabilities in the operation and maintenance of their facilities due to personnel changes. The challenge presented is great and must be met quickly.

A different challenge occurs when a plant is performing poorly. The cause of the problems needs to be identified and corrected through either capital improvements or operator training.

An approach to meeting the challenges is to bring in experienced personnel to guide plant staff through the learning process and to train them on operating and maintenance procedures.

Good Operation and Maintenance is an Asset

Well operated and maintained facilities require that the personnel be well trained and that equipment problems be under control. Well operated and maintained facilities are valuable assets as they normally save costs and reduce the risks of enforcement action by regulators. Probably the greatest value of the asset is in protecting public health.
