Eraring Power Station
At Eraring Power Station, a fleet of eight Condensate Extraction Pumps (CEPs) were failing more frequently than expected.
With every failure, the CEP was offline for a minimum of eight days while being overhauled. The bearing was first disassembled over three days. Then, the pump was removed in two sections while personnel worked under the suspended load to uncouple the pump.
Reinstalling the CEP was even more challenging. The bearing was reassembled on site in cramped conditions, over five or more days.
