Commissioning & Maintenance services

The acceptance and commissioning tests for any new / under construction substations regardless of its voltage level, type or industry is very important for the first time before charging or staring it up as it becomes the blue print for the user for future reference.

Genesis with its progressive experience in Erection, Testing & Commissioning for substations up to 765 kV has executed more than 40 projects. While offering our services we keep in mind industry standards and safety procedures so that we can meet the customers’ requirement and can deliver our services in an efficient and productive way.

Whenever we take contract for erection, testing and commissioning we ensure that following steps has been maintained at site:

  • Site survey and visual inspection of the primary / secondary equipments to be tested.
  • Mechanical operation and inspection as recommended by the OEM.
  • Every equipment has been installed correctly.
  • Checking of the set-up and arrangements for primary and secondary equipments to ensure that all the components are functioning correctly.
  • Each equipment is working in co-ordination with other equipment as per scheme requirement.
  • Performing all the standard and recommend testing on primary and secondary equipments.
  • Scheme modification or correction, if required, as per system / customer requirements.
  • Ensure that the products supplied and installed at site are according to the specification or approved design.
  • Ensure that equipments were not subjected to any damage during transportation.
  • Maintain and provide reports for all the test conducted to the user so that it can used as reference for future activities.

We have reputed and top-notch testing instruments, essential tools & tackles and machinery with us for carrying out our services. We ensure that all our testing equipments are duly calibrated before we leave to site for testing and commissioning activities.

Our experienced team of engineers, technicians, skilled and semi-skilled labours are always on forefront to help our customers with testing and troubleshooting activities of the primary and secondary equipment’s in the switchyard and supports in commissioning works so that EPC companies can get the TOC (Take Over Certificate) from their clients.

The requirement and consumption of electricity is growing day by day due to which the electrical power system is getting more and more complex. To meet the growing demands and by following the inflexible guidelines the Utilities always tries to maintain uninterrupted power supply to the users and cannot afford to have breakdowns / grid failures.

The overhauling and major maintenance activities over equipment is expensive and needs to be properly planned based on the condition and age of the equipment. It is prudent to assess the health of the equipment and take corrective action in advance rather than having equipment failure and an unreliable system.

With advancement in technology new condition and monitoring based instruments are available which can be used during maintenance. These testing instruments play vital role in condition and monitoring test. The test results obtained from these instruments are always to be compared with the Factory test/pre-commissioning/last test results to assess the present condition. Hence data base of the test results and history of the equipment should be maintained for proper evaluation of test results.

As testing is one of the key factors for condition and monitoring activities, necessary and recommended precautions should be taken care while performing testing of the equipments to avoid wrong test results and wrong conclusion.

We at Genesis always suggest our customer to follow PPPM method. The PPPM stands for Planned, Periodic and Preventive Maintenance. This method helps in minimizing unwarranted breakdowns of equipments which in-turn improves the reliability of the system and generates revenue. Such method proves to be useful for those substations which are getting older as the equipments prone to fail more when compared with newly commissioned substation.

While giving our offer we define scope of work for necessary preventive maintenance test for each switchyard equipment and the schedule in which the tests are to be carried out in a year. Our team during the inspection and condition assessment tests records all observations giving details of the activity, observed parameters, deviations with reference to acceptable norms/limits, remarks/views about the checks and testing carried out. These observation and test information are fed in our standardized testing reports and our expert engineers do the evaluation and analysis of these reports.

By following such maintenance schedule and utilizing our thorough knowledge on the testing we provide advance information about the health of the equipment to take corrective action help utilities to keep the equipment continuously in service for desired output.
