Proactive maintenance regime achieved

Back to case studies

Transfield Services is an operations, maintenance and construction services business, operating globally in the resources, energy, industrial, infrastructure, property and defence sectors. 

In 2004, Transfield Services owned, operated and maintained Collinsville Power Station (now wholly owned by Ratch-Australia Corporation). 

Collinsville is an intermediate coal fi red power station with a total output of 180MW. Ausenco Rylson delivered the following services to Transfield Services: 

  • Reviewed Asset Management documentation and updated as required, specifically: 
    • asset management policy 
    • equipment strategy development 
    • criticality analysis procedure 
    • work management system 
    • plant/equipment hierarchy development 
    • spares analysis procedure 
    • inventory management procedures and policies. 
  • Implemented the following: 
    • maintenance strategy optimisation and upload into SAP 
    • work management system development and roll-out 
    • consolidation of inventory and review/update of stock levels 
    • on-site coaching, mentoring and training on all the above asset management systems and processes. 


Ausenco Rylson assisted Transfield Services Asset Manager to deliver all of these services. Within a period of five months, the Maintenance Department converted from a reactive maintenance regime to a proactive maintenance regime; going from 20% proactive to 80% proactive maintenance activities. 

This project was a forerunner to rolling out Asset Management systems and policies across the whole Transfield Services Group.
