Nihar Associates was employed to develop maintenance plans for the LV/HV switchboards and protection equipment installed on our client’s oil and gas platform such that they aligned with their suite of Generic Maintenance Strategies.

In addition, Nihar Associates performed an extensive review of the equipment within the scope of the project to determine if they were appropriately documented in the CMMS (by examining the data stored in SAP PM, single line diagrams, and general arrangement drawings), and created/changed functional locations in SAP PM as required.


  • 300 unique pieces of equipment had their functional location and maintenance plan data reviewed/updated.
  • Maintenance plans were updated such that they conformed to the requirements of the¬†Generic Maintenance Strategies, and that each piece of equipment would be tested in the most efficient way (considering both safety and economic constraints).
