The only way to combat natural ageing of equipment while adhering to management requirement is correct maintenance, which allows prevention of faults in the electrical apparatus and components installed.
The primary goal in maintenance is to prevent failures and eliminate potential damages as quickly and safely as possible - at the lowest feasible cost. The main objective of Hitachi ABB Power Grids maintenance programs is to optimize the functionality of the existing switchgear. Maintenance programs generally need to be planned on a customer-specific basis.
The best strategy to increase the plant availability is an optimized combination of scheduled, selective and prepared maintenance activities.
