Long-term strategy and asset-specific asset management plan
Marafiq is a major power, water and sanitation utility in Saudi Arabia. Fichtner is assisting Marafiq with the assessment and establishment of their asset management system overall as well as with the development of long-term asset management planning for a pilot plant. To this end, Fichtner carried out a determination of the maturity level in accordance with ISO 55.000 (the international asset management standard), identified strengths and weaknesses, and developed an implementation roadmap focusing on future certification. Long-term goals and strategies for company-wide asset management were developed on the basis of these findings. A concrete long-term asset management plan with specific goals, strategies and scenario-based performance forecasts was developed for a gas turbine as part of a pilot, and this now serves as a template for all other asset categories.
