faster than traditional outage
The outage process improvements required both up-front and real-time planning. Some of the key hardware and components, which would usually be assembled during the outage, were preassembled and ready to be installed at the beginning of the outage, which resulted in more “hands on deck” during key portions of the project. In addition, the team of engineers made a few changes to the sequencing in the process of disassembling and reassembling the unit, which helped reduce unnecessary rework and man hours.
This outage also employed a new GE enhancement called “Live Outage”, which replaces a previously manual process with a more modern one to help improve the safety, quality and efficiency of onsite field execution. While traditional outages rely on a trailer full of paper documentation and drawings, GE’s Live Outage brings all that knowledge and project tracking to a touchscreen-based, digitized platform that includes a large display screen on site and tablets for the field execution team. With drawings, videos, step-by step procedures and checklists, and live feedback from a centralized GE knowledge management system available on screen, outage team members have everything they need at their fingertips—literally.
As a result of these process and technology improvements, the team was able to complete the outage in just 8 days—6 days faster than the average HGP, with no safety incidents.
GE has implemented a new approach to outages called Live Outage, which was developed along with experts from the field to improve the field execution experience for our customers.
