Services Tailored Specifically for the Nuclear Industry
services to the nuclear industry that extend beyond the traditional management
and maintenance approach. These services include
Project Outage and Turnaround Management, PM
optimization services, AOV diagnostic testing and maintenance, and MOV
diagnostic testing and maintenance.
Our unique methodology begins with extensive and detailed pre-outage planning
process which challenges each work order to validate their actual intent
ensuring both predictable outage performance and better equipment reliability.
The transition from pre-outage activities to outage execution is designed to
allow tasks to be executed by our full-time factory trained technicians with a
one-touch, integrated valve team concept. This concept means the same team of
technicians executes the entire work-scope ranging from instrument, actuator,
and valve body repairs to diagnostic testing.
Our PM optimization strategy uses OEM recommendations for Predictive Maintenance
activities based on a thorough engineering review of each application, materials
of construction, industry OE, and upgrade opportunities to extend or verify the
duration of the PM cycle.
Repair Reporting -
This revolutionary approach uses ControlWorx procedures that align with the
nuclear industry milestones and standards. These procedures are specially
designed to allow our Integrated Valve Team to have a proven success path while
performing work package reviews, walk downs, valve team war-room implementation,
readiness challenges, and execution.
Our post-outage lessons learned and recommendations go far beyond the execution
of valve maintenance.
ControlWorx processes along with
Emerson Nuclear Services include comprehensive repair reporting that documents
valve condition with pictures for use in determination of PM effectiveness and
optimization. Our lessons learned and continuous improvement programs are
specially designed for each facility to allow an improvement in performance
based on the tribal knowledge gained from permanent employees.
Repeat project managers and technicians, along with our repair reporting system
ensure these lessons learned are not lost from outage to outage.
ControlWorx OEM maintenance strategies and affiliation with Emerson and other
manufacturers allows us to work with the plant site to identify and implement
long-term solutions to ongoing valve problems. Our process control engineers
work with process automation 365 days a year both in and outside of the nuclear
industry. We utilize this experience and employ the OEM engineering staff to
provide the most comprehensive solutions. Once an opportunity is identified, we
communicate with the site and OEM to deliver the best solution for the lifecycle
of the assets.
Comprehensive pre-outage project management to execute predictable outage
performance along with OEM maintenance and engineering strategies reduce outage
scope and cost.
