Nova Scotia Power owns, operates and maintains the majority of its power production. This is in the form of thermal steam units, combustion turbines, hydro, tidal, wind and biomass. Like in any business, the stakeholders expect cost efficient and reliable electricity supply, while technical people expect to understand the risks, operators and maintainers expect safe and trustworthy equipment. A need to run leaner and more profitably is a challenge that a strong asset management program can support. This webcast will highlight NSPI’s approach to building an asset management program in our power generation fleet. See how NSPI consciously chose innovative technologies and techniques to get results and avoid the pitfalls when following the process “by the book”. Hear what NSPI learned along the way and how to improve as they move forward in the never ending journey of asset management.​
