Plants and plant owners are under increasing scrutiny to meet market demands and at the same time reduce their ongoing operations and maintenance (O&M) costs. These challenges can seem monumental and can drive uncertainty in approaches and the implementation of ineffective “short-term” fixes. BCP understands the need and benefits of effectively managing the life of […]
We understand the process for completing major projects in a sequence that allows the effective turnover of completed systems to the startup and commissioning group, to perform the initial test program and prepare the plant for operation. We have directly participated in the successful construction, completion, startup testing, operational readiness, and commissioning of numerous plants (Nuclear, Fossil, and Renewable) and power delivery infrastructure (Transmission and Distribution) around the globe.
Plant outages/turnarounds are a substantial contributor to the overall cost structure of any plan fraught with costs due to the complex, expensive and risky nature of outages/turnarounds. Impacts on plants can be tremendous: Lost revenue while a plant/unit is shutdown Critical path items/project delays Safety hazards Coordination and scheduling complexities Maintaining qualified team members Startup, […]
