Embedding the RCM Mindset

In 2013, GDF Suez Energia Polska inaugurated a new “Green Unit” biomass plant, the world’s biggest powerplant entirely fueled by biomass. This presentation will discuss the Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) project conducted as a start to develop the next 30 year permanent maintenance strategy for the new unit, with an emphasis on continuous improvement and finding maximum effective solutions. The presentation will address:

  • Overview of the RCM project (such as schedule, scope, participation, software, etc.).
  • Results and savings estimations in terms of cost and spare parts reduction (including comparisons with OEM recommendations and Run to Failure).
  • Lessons learned (what we know now and what we can recommend).

Key Words: RCM, Maintenance Strategy, OEMs Recommendation Savings, RTF, Biomass Boiler, Embedding Mindset, SAP, Isograph, People, Improvement
