SEC Trans

SEC Transmission Dept
SEC(CRB) generates 5,000 MW of power at its 11 generation plants, and distributes the power to the Saudi Central Region (around Riyadh) via 69,202 km of cables.

The company employs 6,500 personnel. The Transmission Department identified the need to review the maintenance operations to examine opportunities where improved methods of operation and procedural efficiencies could be implemented

In partnership with the Specialist Group, a respected local consultancy, a wide ranging review of operations and maintenance activities were audited and analyzed to provide a detailed plan for the way forward.

Simon Mills devised the methodology and managed the project in Saudi Arabia, assisted by an electrical power distribution specialist from Mott McDonald, and undertook the review over a 6 month period

The audit was completed for 35 Operations and Maintenance activities of the Transmission Department. This initially identified 30 key asset management challenges, grouped into equipment, personnel and procedural focused lists. From these, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were identified and established. A detailed site audit and subsequent improvement planning process resulted in 179 specific recommendations.

These recommendations were ranked by utilising a sophisticated cost-benefit model, resulting in the identification of 25 high priority actions.

Payback on the top 25 recommended actions was projected to be SR 3.7 million for a cost of SR 0.4 million. These benefits were derived primarily from improved work methods that allow the work to be performed more efficiently. Additional health & safety and staff morale benefits were also identified. The review also delivered a detailed specification for the selection, procurement and implementation of an Enterprise Asset Management System (EAMS)
