Safeguarding your plant

Successfully operating a power plant is a 24/7 task. As a plant owner or investor, you anticipate and expect smooth, continuous operation with high levels of availability and reliability. But no matter how well prepared, issues will inevitably arise, and it is imperative to have experienced and dedicated people at hand, ready to find solutions so no time is wasted. We provide O&M services around the clock to protect your investment and secure the plant’s availability, not only by the plant staff but also by the technical support teams in the head office.

Working together

To achieve results, BWSC relies on cooperation and teamwork with our main equipment suppliers, local service providers and most importantly our customers. Customers and suppliers are our partners, and we are in this together, with mutually agreed targets and success criteria. This is the backbone of the BWSC philosophy.

Enabling the right people to make the right decisions

We believe that, when possible, power plant decisions should be made locally and not only behind a desk at headquarters. Our well-trained and local employees make this possible. We empower them with full responsibility, enable them to take action and solve issues wherever they are stationed.

Only results count

We guarantee a high and stable availability on your plant, and we keep our promises.  We work hard to safeguard our reputation, and we are proud to say that our operation and maintenance staff has earned the respect of power plant owners and the industry worldwide.
