Smart O&M as a tool for continuous improvement at BEGSE
BEGSE is a solid waste treatment high-tech environmental protection enterprise jointly funded by Beijing Development Environmental Protection (Haidian) Limited (99% share) and Beijing Lvhaineng Environmental Co., Ltd. (1% equity), owned by Beijing Enterprises Environment Group Limited. The company was established in August 2014 with a registered capital of 308 million yuan.
The Renewable Energy Power Plant is located in Beijing Haidian District Circular Economy Industrial Park. It covers an area of 22.75 hectares, with a total construction area of 63,100 square meters. It has a household waste treatment capacity of 2,100 tons/day, approximately 790,000 tons/year, generating approximately 260 million kilowatt-hours/year.
BEGSE was deeply aware of the importance of asset management at the early stage of construction, and contacted Siveco China before the project was officially put into operation, to understand Siveco China's asset management methodology and business application logic. Based on Siveco China’s successful implementation on waste treatment plants in Shanghai, Taiwan, Nantong, Hong Kong, etc., BEGSE finally chose Siveco China to implement its computerized maintenance solution in the waste-to-energy plant.
By defining the "Core Model", Siveco China has established a comprehensive maintenance management system for BEGSE, including technical data management, HSE management, preventive work planning, spare parts management, procurement management and decision support. Siveco China helped BEGSE to achieve the best maintenance management practices through professional theoretical foundations and systematic training and evaluation.
Specific project goals included:
Establish a structured plant equipment database (including equipment and spare parts), paying attention to defining equipment types, equipment criticality, and other useful equipment data for vertical and horizontal reliability analysis
Standardize the work order feedback process, to enable SDCA (Symptoms, Failures, Causes and Measures) analysis to gradually build-up a historical maintenance knowledge base and gradually improve the skill level of the entire maintenance team
Define and implement preventive maintenance plans (frequency, actions, personnel, spare parts) to ensure equipment availability and safe production
Build a systematic reporting system, coach the maintenance team to use the reports and performance indicators that meet international standards to carry out continuous improvement work
Establish a complete inventory and spare parts management mechanism and correlate it with actual maintenance work to provide a basis for safety stock and spare parts procurement plans
Implement clear procurement practices, from purchase requisition to purchase order, linked with the inventory system.
The CMMS project of BEGSE was launched on September 5, 2016, and the system put online on January 20, 2017. Both the management methodology and its implementation in practice were well received by the top managers of Beijing Enterprises.
