Asset Maturity Assessment

Karatha Power Station
Atco Power

Wave's Asset Management department (as MRS) were asked to perform a Maturity Assesment of the Maintenance Managemenet systems at the Karatha Power Station (KPS) in WA. We were then engauged to develop an improvement program focused on developing a structured maintenance management process at KPS.

Early in the project we focused on developing processes that match both the size and maturity of the management team at KPS. The final Maintenance Management Framework and supporting manual was very simple and targeted at not burying the small management team in a bureaucratic system.

The process is supported by a Visual Management Board which tracks daily operations, safety, people and maintenance targets.
