Changing energy markets require power plants to operate with more flexible loads. In addition, pressure is increasing to keep costs down by optimizing maintenance and inspection activities according to the realistic needs.

Plant-wide Degradation Assessment and Inspection Optimization with COMSY reduces maintenance and inspection costs.
COMSY (Condition-oriented Aging and Plant Life Management System) is an efficient predictive system which is capable to provide life cycle management and realistic condition assessment for power plant components based on the individual operation conditions. The program with its integrated degradation assessment modules enables the design and setup of a living program with optimized maintenance and inspection concepts. Furthermore, case studies can be carried out to investigate the effect of e.g. higher start up gradients.

Your benefits

  • Predictive calculation of degradation progress for piping and components
  • Determination of the remaining lifetime based on design criteria
  • Determination of individual inspection dates for all components at risk with the support of risk-informed prioritization methodology
  • Identification and evaluation of operation modes margins
  • Design studies for new plants or power uprates regarding the optimization of material selection and geometry
