MAN PrimeServ seals five-year service agreement for Cambodian power plant
MAN PrimeServ, the after-sales brand of MAN Energy Solutions, has signed a five-year service agreement for a new 200 MW power plant near Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital. The tailormade contract was signed with Cambodian O&M company, SchneiTec Co. Ltd., responsible for the C7 power plant owned by Cambodian utility, Electricite Du Cambodge (EDC), and constructed by MAN Energy Solutions. The plant is powered by 11 × MAN 18V51/60DF engines.
The five-year agreement covers the supply of OEM spare parts, specialist services and digital solutions, all aimed at improving the power-plant’s uptime to ensure a reliable energy supply for Phnom Penh. MAN PrimeServ will partner with SchneiTec to ensure the efficient planning of maintenance services during the plant’s lifecycle.
Tann Tourthang, General Manager, SchneiTec Co. Ltd. said: “MAN PrimeServ convinced us with its maintenance solution that focuses on a collaborative approach to enable forward-thinking maintenance planning and cost-certainty. We were also impressed by MAN’s unmatched service-infrastructure, including its network of service centers with trained specialists spread throughout Asia Pacific”.
The agreement was negotiated by PrimeServ O&M − responsible within MAN PrimeServ for long-term service agreements, plant operation and maintenance. Dr. Michael Filous, Vice President and Head of PrimeServ O&M commented: “With our customer-centric lifecycle approach, we are committed to work with SchneiTec to ensure efficient plant-maintenance. We are also grateful to have the opportunity to secure a reliable power supply for the people of Phnom Penh. EDC’s C7 power plant is another important reference in our growing portfolio of power plants under service contracts”.SchneiTec and EDC will benefit from MAN’s digital-service solution – PrimeServ Assist – which strongly supports the efficient operation of power plants. Engine operation will be remotely monitored 24/7 by dedicated service experts, with the customer notified immediately in the event of critical deviations in engine performance. As its database continues to grow, PrimeServ Assist’s ability to act as an early warning system and optimize uptime increases. Past references for the digital service have showcased its ability to avoid stoppages through the early analysis of performance trends.
