Keyspan Energy - Outage

Back To Case Studies


  • 2004-05 Unit # 3 (375 MW) major outage runs over in duration, scope and budget
  • Client recognizes need to improve current outage processes
  • Strategically, client emphasizes reducing overruns on next major outage, developing more complete outage processes, and moving to a data based culture instead of a knowledge based one.

Process Results:

  • Improvements based on comparison to similar 375 MW units and work at same location
  • Labor actual within 4% of estimated
  • Scope expanded without additional man-hours
  • Maximo/Primavera reconciliation within 2%

Bottom-Line Impacts:

  • 30% Labor-hour reduction on turbine overhaul
  • Reduced economizer by 1,000 man-hours (6000 total outage)
  • Within 1% of budget estimation
  • Estimated duration met
