Power Plant Availability

Today’s plant operating profiles are stressing your fossil units like never before.

Improve Power Plant Availability Despite Operational Challenges

Forced outages are on the rise as fossil plants cycle to stabilize the more variable power supplied by renewables. With the increased stress that cycling adds to your units, smaller staffs struggle to operate and maintain your plant’s assets effectively.

Working with Emerson, your staff can mitigate the effects of cycling and have your units ready when called upon. We can also equip your staff with the insight to resolve electrical, rotating and valve equipment problems as they arise – not when they fail.
