With over 100 years of transmission and distribution experience in Calgary, ENMAX has only been in the power generation business for a few years following the acquisition of the Shepard Energy Centre (SEC). The addition of SEC has doubled the generation operated portfolio for ENMAX requiring significant work to ensure the facility conforms to the company’s Operations and Maintenance programs. This presentation will describe various integration strategies that ENMAX undertook including: building an organizational design to fit with the asset use plan; identifying all individual assets and use a structured approach for risk assessment and maintenance recommendations; developing spare parts purchasing plan based using risk based methodology; establish complete regulatory compliance program and EHS procedures and systems; and integrating everything into ENMAX’s existing systems. This presentation will explore both the challenges and benefits of this major endeavor.
