Bureau Veritas assist with the Millmerran Power Station Shutdown

16/10/18

Bureau Veritas assist with the Millmerran Power Station ShutdownDowner Mitsubishi Hitachi (DMH) - formerly Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) Plant Services, is one of Australia’s and South East Asia’s leading power industry mechanical maintenance service providers, covering construction and maintenance of boilers, turbines and generators in the thermal power industry.

Bureau Veritas performed Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) recently for DMH in a major boiler outage at the Millmerran Power Station in Queensland. An extensive NDT proficiency testing was undertaken ahead of the outage proving that Bureau Veritas’ technicians, equipment and technical procedures met the requirements of Millmerran’s EPRI engineering advisors.

Bureau Veritas mobilised technicians, ultrasonic and radiography equipment to Millmerran for 24-hour service for 6 weeks. The scope of work included Non-Destructive Testing of Boiler #2 tube replacement, totalling approximately 3500 Phased Array Ultrasonic weld tests along with conventional NDT methods completed throughout the boiler. Experienced technicians worked alongside with DMH welders to confirm weld integrity as boiler tube elements were welded into place. All of Bureau Veritas’ phased array technicians passed competency assessments run by EPRI (Energy and Power Research Institute of America) for boiler tube phased array testing.

Site operations continued around the clock with the team working on multiple fronts at the same time starting with the pre-outage site works in preparation three weeks earlier. The main outage was completed in five weeks with the final handover delivered to the client on schedule.

DMH commented: “Thank you to Bureau Veritas, all testing completed on time with no delays to production. This is the first time that all reports have been transmitted before demobilisation allowing all ITP work pack closure. With this response, this outage has been a success.”
