Back To Case Studies


  • Three site locations, each managing their own overhauls
  • Coal/steam units ranging from 11MW – 100MW, Gas CT units < 50MW
  • Overhauls were focused primarily on duration, limited emphasis on scope or budget

Process Results:

  • Create and managed detailed project plan & roles/responsibilities to deliver project on schedule and under budget
  • 100% of staff trained at a level appropriate for their position
  • Field coached & coordinated staff activities to support training and implementation for the Outage/Project Management Process

Bottom-Line Impacts:

  • Due to proper work identification prior to the start of the BF overhaul. BHP was able to successfully complete the life extension project 2 years early with an estimated savings of $7.4 million
