Powering Results & Cost Reductions

Problem:

Our client knew they had problems, but weren’t really sure how to address them.

  • Their $30m + gas turbine power plant engines were rusting in storage and transit before ever reaching the installation site;
    • They were applying packaging materials themselves to their product that were specified by a reputable material vendor, materials they thought would offer them the very best in
      protection for their product; and they were applying those materials according to that vendor’s method statement. So why were they still experiencing rust problems on every shipment? They were paying a high price, and still suffering customer perception issues and unbudgeted remedial costs.
  • Customs in one geographic region were frequently cutting the packaging to inspect for
    contraband and in doing so created contamination by sand and other foreign debris.

     

    • This sometimes necessitated costly tear-down and re-build, incurring significant unbudgeted cost and liquidated damages arising from late delivery
