Bringing a new asset online is exciting!
Whether it’s replacing old, troublesome equipment or adding more capacity, new equipment brings a host of benefits to your organization. The high reliability of the fresh-from-the-factory asset should also mean trouble-free operation, allowing your techs to focus attention on other issues.
But how trouble-free the new equipment runs and how productive it is, depends in large part on whether you properly install and commission it. What should manufacturers, utilities and process operators consider as they plan to acquire a new asset? ABB service experts have some ideas.
“The main thing to ensure proper installation, commissioning and long, trouble-free asset life is to work as a team with the OEM,” said Davor Vlaski, field service and operations team leader.
Aside from ensuring a smoother startup, close involvement by the customer builds relationships with the vendor that will pay off down the line. When the equipment owner has a problem or even just a question, they have someone specific to call. Their vendor contact will not only be familiar with the equipment, but the installation and the facility. That will enable them to quickly provide a knowledgeable and helpful response.
