“Largest floating power plants in the world” (Waller Marine)

MATE PCS completed the startup phase of implementing the GP MaTe Computerized Maintenance System for two barge based GE 7FA power plants near Caracas in Venezuela. MATE PCS worked with S&W Energy Services to define and load the equipment asset information, develop the complete Preventive Maintenance program for both units, including the barge ancillary system PMs, and load the spare parts inventory required to support the operations and maintenance of the plants.

Onsite training and start-up consulting was performed by MATE PCS to help S&W manage the plant startup operations and to support the eventual turnover of operations and maintenance to Corpoelec.

MATE PCS was asked to develop the equipment lists from plant as built drawings and then to develop the PM program for both plants based upon manufacturer recommendations and MATE PCS’ experience with similar plant configurations.

The two plants were installed on barges built by Waller Marine in Orange, Texas and shipped to the site in 2011. There is a great YouTube video of the construction of these barges at:
