Electricity of Vietnam hosted the above workshop from 7-11 January 2019 at Laly Hydro Power Company, Pleiku City, Vietnam.
Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) is a corporate-level maintenance strategy that is implemented to optimize the maintenance program of a plant or facility. The final outcome of an RCM program is the implementation of a specific maintenance strategy on each of the assets of the plant. In the case of power generation plants, this would include critical assets such as synchronous generators, turbines, generator transformers, etc.
The challenges for power plant owners is to increase reliability and reduce cost. Reliability-based maintenance is a proactive approach to helping power plants achieve better results of delivering the highest availability and reliability at the lowest cost.
The ultimate goal of RCM is to achieve optimum environmental, health and safety compliance, and desired plant operability, by establishing the most economical balance of corrective, preventive, and predictive maintenance activities to ensure plant assets perform as required.
15 participants from Laly Hydro Power Company attended the workshop facilitated by Mr Fazle Ayob and Mr Marwan Mohamed of Tenaga Nasional Berhad
