Would anyone be interested in setting up a monthly phone conference to discuss topics unique to engine based power generation. Safety, environmental, and production lessons learned. Unique troubleshooting issues. Maybe just a forum to bounce an idea off.
I can host the call. If you are interested please email me directly at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you.August 25, 2017 at 3:33 pm #1718AnonymousInactive
I think it’s a great idea. As we mentioned on the last day of the 2016 Conference, having a semi-regular communication (whether monthly or quarterly) would be a great way to ensure that operating experience and best practices are shared between members. It would also be a way to track commonly occurring issues that should be raised to Wartsila for consideration, action, and/or follow-up. I’m also willing to host or help.
The other thing that we can do to start the ball rolling, is to have member stations email me with a list of top-3 concerns, and I can then distribute the compiled list (so that we can prioritize which areas may require most attention). I’ll offer to start that list. Please send top-3 items to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can have a call between now and the 2017 Conference, and/or fine-tune during our discussions at the Conference.

OK. I’ll be hosting a phone conference on September 20 beginning at 1000 pacific time. The dial in specifics are as follows: 1-800-603-7556 code 32501612#
Please join if you are able. The first call will primarily be used as a meet and greet and a general discussion regarding the topics and format of a monthly phone call.September 19, 2017 at 6:39 pm #1724AnonymousInactive
I’ve quickly pulled-together a spreadsheet that includes some of the issues discussed at the 2016 WUG Conference, as well as recent issues generated on the WUG website discussion “Forums.”

It makes perfect sense (per Chuck’s note) to first spend time to meet, greet, and discuss a go-forward format for these calls.
That said, I thought it was at least sharing some of the issues discussed (informally) thus far. Hopefully, this will be a decent starting point for the calls that take place “beyond” tomorrow.
Chuck – thx for hosting. We can discuss “tag team” leadership beyond tomorrow’s call, if that would be helpful. Thx again!

One of the self-inflicted “action items” that I took during the recent collaboration call (and reported in the minutes of the previous post), was to forward along information related MPR’s capabilities with respect to Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) and Engine Signature Analysis (ESA). See files within the link below.
Hopefully, the CBM report file and the CBM slide file will be self-explanatory, but I wanted to provide some background related to the ESA file. This was a report based upon liquid-fueled Wartsila 18V38 engines in Guatemala (April 2010), so I sought/received permission from the plant operator to share this report.
The details of this ESA report represent a more full-scope of MPR capabilities, and for other plants the scope could be reduced or tailored (e.g., streamlined to recommendations only) for the specific needs, based upon number of units or station requirements. Anyway, it will provide you with some sense of MPR’s diagnostic/prognostic services to assist with the optimization of engine operation and maintenance.
