Power plants operated with coal, natural gas or oil are the primary sources of power supply
and therefore must be constantly available. Failure of a primary component not only has direct
consequences locally, but can also affect the stability of the entire mains infrastructure.
The machines in a power plant can be sub-divided into turbo sets and auxiliary equipment. For
safety reasons, turbines are protected by a machine safety system. All other primary and
secondary components, depending on their importance in the power generation process, are
either monitored by an online condition monitoring system or checked with a portable data
collector within the framework of regular inspections.
This allows the timely and cost-effective execution of corrective actions, such as shaft alignment
