First line maintenance includes preventive actions that can easily be executed by on-site maintenance personnel. All procedures are documented and training for operators and maintenance staff is provided after commissioning of the installation.
Second line maintenance comprises follow-up of the overall condition and performance of the machine as well as the performance of the complete installation to maintain continuation of the ORC machine. The follow-up work is reduced by implementation of extended logging on the operator panel and evaluation capabilities implemented in the machine controls itself. E-RATIONAL can monitor and operate the machines remotely to assist and advise in this matter.
A two year overhaul of the machines is to be executed by BEP assigned personnel. This overhaul includes a revision of the expander. Basically, it comes down to the fact that a spare expander is prepared in the workshop followed by replacement on-site of the expander by the prepared spare. The old expander returns to and becomes the property of BEP EUROPE. The expected time the machine will be out of service is in a range of two to four days, depending on the conditions of the machine.
E-RATIONAL offers maintenance contracts covering all required services for your machine, relevant to the requirements and possibilities of the site: technical (remote monitoring and assistance), mechanical and electrical (BEP EUROPE assigned maintenance interventions and two-yearly overhaul) and logistics (supply of wear parts and consumables).
