The Importance of World-Class Power Plant Operations and Services
How Malaikoff has set the new standard for power plant services
From the satisfying charge to 100% on your smartphone to large urban skyscrapers illuminated by thousands of lights, electricity is a vastly undervalued resource. It is the very core of what keeps a city “alive”. But who or what exactly generates the large amounts of electricity we use in our daily lives? The answer is an industrial facility known as a power plant. Power plants convert mechanical energy into electrical energy using generators that supply power to electrical grids for society’s needs. Different countries get their power from different kinds of power plants. For instance, some power plants in Malaysia are coal-fired, while others use hybrid power stations. Common fuels range from coal, natural gas, or uranium. Other sources may come from wind, solar, tidal, and geothermal mechanisms as well. So, with all these sources in mind, each power plant requires the most careful attention to detail when it comes to maintenance and handling. One wrong move could lead to substantial impacts to the power supply of an entire city! As Malaysia’s most sought after provider of Operation & Maintenance Services, Malaikoff continues to provide their world-class services to Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern power plants. Here are some of the ways they have dedicated themselves to providing only top-quality power plant operations and maintenance.

The overall reliability of each asset can be skyrocketed with their dedicated team, experienced in CCGT and coal plants as well. World-class services mean inspections and overhauls that encompasses every aspect of a power plant. Their power plant inspection services include complete scheduled & unscheduled maintenance that encompasses repairing, overhauling, rewinding, workshop servicing, and calibration. All of these are also done through live feed, so that operators can solve problems in real-time and provide each client the most optimal safety and security.
Any power plant operations and maintenance company could provide said services. But Malaikoff performs each service utilising the latest techniques and services that not only saves time and costs, but also makes each maintenance and inspection session far more efficient. This is what differentiates Malaikoff from others. The consistent updating of power plant maintenance services allows Malaikoff to implement the latest methods to quality servicing for any power plant they are required to handle.

When you select Malaikoff , your power plant inspection or operations maintenance will be handled by Project Lead Engineers, Principal Engineers, Specialists, and skilled craftsmen. The sheer number of services they are able to handle range from steam turbines, gas turbines, pumps, compressors, valves, and mills. Another aspect of their power plant maintenance services is that they also offer electrical, control, and instrumentation calibration as well. This includes generators, motors, transformers, insulated phase bus ducts, actuators, protection relay, and breakers.
Professional Facility Management
An excellent power plant operations and maintenance service requires each Operations & Maintenance facility to have perfect management. Malaikoff has handled massive undertakings, operating facilities that generate a combined total power of over 6800MW and over 300,000 m3/day of desalinated water. These facilities are managed by a strong team of experienced field-service engineers and specialists utilising the latest equipment. This means that Malaikoff is able to provide maximum value to its clients by operating at the highest standards in performance without neglecting safety and environmental care.
District cooling, gas processing, water desalination, and waste to energy are all vital management elements that a power plant needs to thrive, especially in the Southeast Asian region. Not only is this important for power plants to convert, process, and deliver electricity to power supply grids successfully, but it is also essential for each power plant to be able to operate at the most efficient costs. Malaikoff has the solution for this.
Through their life cycle cost reduction and asset rehabilitation, each asset is constantly serviced to perform at its best for least amount of resources. This ensures the longevity of the power plant as well as its ability to continue its operations without dropping in quality. In contemporary times, power plant maintenance services cannot be solely limited to the plant. Facility management extends past the power plant, to other essential services such as solar services and drone inspection services.
These services are the latest methods of optimising operations and processes in a power plant. However, this also means service providers must be competent with handling these technologies. Malaikoff offers solar services that provide clients end-to-end solutions for power plant operations and maintenance services. This includes predictive maintenance and condition monitoring that allows for on-site intervention, which is also known as preventive and corrective maintenance. Every modern power plant needs this. Power plants simply cannot afford errors and drastic mistakes in these times of large demand. That is why Malaikoff is dedicated in preventing these errors from happening in the first place in its solar services and power plant maintenance services.
