          Conference – Expo – Awards

               07 - 08 June 2018, Vivanta by Taj - New Delhi


In India, the current installed capacity is 253,389 MW from all sources of energy and coal-fired alone contributes around 60 per cent. With the introduction of the Electricity Act-2003, the private companies in the country have shown tremendous interest in the power industry and as a result, various independent power projects (IPPs) have come up in India. The capacity addition for the 12th Plan target is to add 88,537 MW of power generation.

Most of the state sector & private power utilities display a wide spectrum of operational practices in India having critical gaps in several key operational areas heading to reduce plant performance including efficiency, generation and availability. There is significant scope for improving overall performance of the underperforming power plants through strengthening of their O&M practices.

The good O&M practices at thermal power stations have significance not only in terms of achieving high levels of performance parameters but also for ensuring the good health of the equipment at the power stations. Over the years, the power stations show deterioration in their performance due to ageing factor. The conditions of such power plants get further deteriorated if proper O&M practices are not followed in their operation. Improved O&M practices are also needed to sustain performance of rehabilitated power plants. Improving performance through interventions aimed at strengthening of O&M practices coupled with required R&M interventions is the quick and least cost alternative for augmenting the availability of power. This requires multiple interventions across various aspects including people, technology, process and infrastructure etc. Such O&M strengthening practices include various aspects like technology, O&M planning, conditional monitoring, preventive maintenance, O&M procedure, enhancement in technical and managerial skills of O&M personnel and infrastructure/facilities improvement. 

Mission Energy Foundation take privilege to announce the 3rd Edition of Thermal Power O&M – Conference – Expo – Awards that is scheduled on 07 - 08 June 2018 at Vivanta by Taj - New Delhi; which is expected to attract participants worldwide focusing on O&M best practices that enhance asset management and can protect the life of power plant equipment to the desired life-cycle of 30 years. The two day of 360 degree technical discussions will be packed with multiple networking opportunities among regional and international guests.


Thermal Power O&M - 2018 shall outline O&M best practices that enhance asset management and can protect the life of power plant equipment to the desired life-cycle of 30 years.

Presentations from best O&M practices include following well-established operating procedures, minimising frequent cold start-ups, reducing prolonged period of operating the unit with low load and operating the unit beyond the design limit, cycling the unit per OEM´s recommendation, following condition-based monitoring, introducing online monitoring system, periodic condition assessment - NDE, maintaining proper water chemistry, utilising proper spares, operating controllable parameters per OEM´s guidelines and staying well within the O&M budgeted cost shall be delivered during the two day interactive sessions.

The discussion shall also include implementation of proper cycle chemistry to prevent boiler tube failures without causing significant loss to the company, annual plant audit, implement preventive maintenance program, and reduce forced outages, RLA assessment and comprehensive cost analysis study performed including damaging cost on annual basis.
