CHANGE YOUR MAINTENANCE PERSPECTIVE
What happens if your facility goes complete blackout for 1 hour? If the answer scares you by means of commercial losses and vital risks; we can then say you are running an intolerant operation. If we change the question into minutes or seconds; and we all know that actually, this downtime should never ever happen, we can then say you are running a Mission Critical Operation.
The configuration and the redundancy of the Emergency Power Systems are vital for establishing full assurance against energy outages for facilities operating with Critical Operation Code. It is additionally crucial that facilities should practice a very well programmed regular and preventive maintenance. That should include full load tests, disaster scenarios to ensure sustainability and uptime of operation. At this point, continuous maintenance of the stored fuel; for generators and dynamic UPSs, which is an active infrastructure element as Emergency Power Systems, is at the forefront. Diesel has a shelf life, and it breaks physically, biologically and chemically.
