Spare parts supply for assured long-term plant operation
Power plants can operate profitably for many years – in fact their profitable service life can extend far beyond the amortization period. Problems with the spare parts supply, however, can quickly place their continued economic operation in jeopardy. Many operators choose to address the need to prevent breaks in production and maintain spare parts supplies by creating their own extensive – and expensive – spare parts stockpiles, but there is a better way.
Siemens possesses deep expertise in all areas of relevance to electrical, instrumentation and I&C systems. Our status as an OEM puts us in a position to ensure the spare parts supply with original or compatible components over a very long period and our lifetime extension solutions allow operators to minimize risks to availability even in the case of discontinued systems. Thus, Siemens offers power plant operators spare parts concepts specifically tailored to the lifetime and requirements of their plants long before any threat of shutdown looms.
Our expertise in spare parts logistics, moreover, enables us to deliver all available spare parts quickly and reliably anywhere in the world. Our spare parts concepts embody the principle of "as much as necessary, as little as possible", which means that only strategically important spare parts are kept in the on-site store. All other original or functionally compatible spare parts are shipped in as quickly and as easily as required. This stocking concept renders the entire spare parts supply process economic in the long term. Customized spare parts concepts, for example incorporating a warranty extension or similar, can be agreed upon on request, as can the repair and replacement of all spare parts by our global service team.
