Myanmar Thaketa O&M Project completes annual minor repair
At 2:00 of Sep 8, 2022, the units of Myanmar Thaketa Power Plant were full-load operated after repair, which means that Myanmar Thaketa O&M Project completed the annual minor repair successfully.
After the coordination with the Myanmar Ministry of Electric Power, the minor repair of the project was scheduled to begin on Sep 1. In order to ensure the smooth development of the minor repair work, the project organized a mobilization meeting, established the unit maintenance leading group including technical supervision, quality supervision and safety supervision, and organized safety and technical disclosure before the start of the repair.
The minor repair involves 18 standard items, 3 technical transformation items, and 11 defect elimination items. The entire maintenance period is short and the work tasks are heavy. During the maintenance period, the project carried out the three key requirements, and all staff strictly abide by the safety management regulations and maintenance standards for minor repairs of the project, paid close attention to the management of operation, made on-site corrections, reported regularly, and resolutely put an end to the "three violations". The staff clearly defined their safety responsibilities and implemented them at every level. In order to have more time to deal with the various defects left in the past, the maintenance personnel only rested for 1 hour at noon every day, and continued to work overtime until 23:00 after dinner. After the unremitting efforts of all staff, the minor repair work was finally completed within the given time.
The successful completion of the minor repair work was highly praised by the owner and recognized by the Myanmar Ministry of Electric Power, which fully demonstrates the project team's work spirit. At the same time, during the maintenance process, the Chinese staff and the Myanmar staff cooperated and worked together, which promoted mutual trust and understanding, improved the Myanmar staff's familiarity with the equipment, and created more favorable conditions for the following safe and stable operation of the units.
