How many years to go?Laborelec Al Taweelah Power Plant

Make the right decisions to extend the lifetime of your plant

The Al Taweelah A1 Power and Desalination Plant has been in service for about fifteen years. It has now reached the stage where management would like to assess the plant’s overall condition and determine which actions are absolutely necessary to ensure that the plant continues to run reliably, efficiently, and cost-effectively for another fifteen years or more. Laborelec and Tractebel Engineering have drawn up an action plan that will help plant management make the right decisions.

Correctly allocating budgets

The action plan specifies which actions need to be taken and how urgent they are. In this way, the local plant and maintenance managers can efficiently plan the plant’s lifetime extension efforts and allocate funds accordingly.
In addition, they can use this information to renegotiate the power purchase agreements. Clarifying the capacity fee that the government is willing to pay for this initiative will aid plant management in making the right budget decisions.

Successful approach

The action plan is based on the same approach that Laborelec used during the successful lifetime extension studies for the Belgian power fleet:

“The lifetime extension study enables us to prioritize our investments and effectively allocate the maintenance budget.” Peter Pauwels, General Manager at Al Taweelah A1 Power and Desalination Plant, Abu Dhabi
