Hydro Plant Major Overhaul

Normally hydro plant doing major overhaul around 10 years for a cycle. Why we need such work to be carry out?

The main reason for setting up overhaul is to prevent unscheduled outages from failure of equipment. Since a machine which already run for a long period have lot of wear and tear and need to be treated well to make it last longer.

In order for the overhaul to proceed smoothly and to accomplish all the work required, planning should start well before the overhaul starts.

I am going to prepare roughly on what we have to do or prepare before we can carry out such a big job. Maybe it will takes some time to complete all the checklist. Anyway I will try to find out the data first before write an entry about hydro major overhaul.
