    Coal-Fired Power Plant Morupule B, Botswana

    O&M management and detailed gap analysis

    SES has taken over the O&M of MBPS on short notice on demand of the state owned Botswana Power Corporation. The contracted services comprise operation of the four units 24/7 including daily maintenance, repair and overhaul management. Intense training of client‘s local staff allows to melt down the SES workforce from initially app. 300 employees gradually. In order to get a clear picture SES has performed a gap analysis on MBPS indicating flaws in design, construction and documentation. The respective report includes findings and recommendations of about 30 international experts having performed site walk-downs and design calculations for dedicated systems. In-house developed software tools such as SI®/PAM (which is a CMMS) support the plant personnel of MBPS in an efficient plant operation.
