By Jack Burke12 November 2020
MAN PrimeServ, the after-sales brand of MAN Energy Solutions, has signed a five-year service agreement for a new 200 MW power plant near Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital.
The tailormade contract was signed with Cambodian O&M company, SchneiTec Co. Ltd., responsible for the C7 power plant owned by Cambodian utility, Electricite Du Cambodge (EDC), and constructed by MAN Energy Solutions. The plant is powered by 11 MAN 18V51/60DF engines.
The five-year agreement covers the supply of OEM spare parts, specialist services and digital solutions, all aimed at improving the power plant’s uptime to ensure a reliable energy supply for Phnom Penh. MAN PrimeServ will partner with SchneiTec to help ensure the efficient planning of maintenance services during the plant’s lifecycle.
“MAN PrimeServ convinced us with its maintenance solution that focuses on a collaborative approach to enable forward-thinking maintenance planning and cost-certainty,” said Tann Tourthang, general manager, SchneiTec Co. Ltd. “We were also impressed by MAN’s unmatched service-infrastructure, including its network of service centers with trained specialists spread throughout Asia Pacific.”
The agreement was negotiated by PrimeServ O&M − responsible within MAN PrimeServ for long-term service agreements, plant operation and maintenance.
Engine operation will be remotely monitored 24/7 by dedicated service experts, with the customer notified immediately in the event of critical deviations in engine performance. As its database continues to grow, PrimeServ Assist’s ability to act as an early warning system and optimize uptime increases, the company said. Past references for the digital service have showcased its ability to avoid stoppages through the early analysis of performance trends.
