Facility Shutdown

A Proactive Temporary Power Plant Reduces Risks and Costs During Shutdown / Maintenance

There are times when utility providers need supplementary power support when current power facilities undergo maintenance, are under replacement or upgraded to the latest, more efficient technologies. Altaaqa Global’s rental power solutions provide a reliable alternative during these scheduled periods of outages to minimize interruption in electricity supply.

A period of interruption especially of electric current. The utility infrastructure and its associate power facilities are disrupted for a period of time.

A shutdown is a planned general outage of equipment used by a business for production or delivery of service, usually caused by maintenance or upgrading. All main power and other utilities are cut off for a given amount of time, disrupting the activities of normal business and leading to customer inconvenience. That is why minimizing the effects of a shutdown is critical.

Managing Risks

Managing shutdowns is a precise operation. Steps must be taken to ensure the proper flow of procedure. Altaaqa Global manages not only internal risks but external risks as well. This list guarantees a well-orchestrated shutdown:

  • Packaged and turnkey temporary power equipment (generators, fuel tanks, transformers, switchgears and all power ancillaries)
  • Materials management & spare parts
  • Utility supplies
  • Engineering services
  • Utility company engineering departments
  • Regulatory compliance and insurance
  • Qualified & CAT certified manpower
  • Work permissions from authorities, neighboring shared services or properties
Shutdowns should be planned before implementation, a necessary action that will reduce the time the facility is non-operational.

Shutdowns should be planned before implementation. This is a necessary action that will reduce the time the facility is non-operational. The shutdown plan and Altaaqa Global’s temporary power solution is divided into three specific stages:

  • Pre-shutdown – Site preparation and commissioning of the temporary power plant
  • Shutdown – Temporary power plant is running continuously, 24/7
  • Post-shutdown – Temporary power plant demobilizes

This approach is vital because maximizing the maintenance will shorten downtime. Resourcefulness, creativity and collaboration between everyone involved is important to minimize the outage period.
