Improved turnaround of Langerlo power plant
Until 2017, Electrabel (nowadays Engie) operated the Langerlo power plant at Genk, Belgium, which was a coal-biomass fired power plant. The 2006 turnaround of this twin plant was characterized by significant reworks, budget overrun, and additional production loss.
After that turnaround, Electrabel asked PDM to perform a process review of the existing process for preparing and executing turnarounds within the Langerlo organization. This analysis indicated several areas for improvement, some of which were selected for immediate action.
