2018 Generation Equipment Reliability Report – Digital Publication
The information in this report can be used by utility companies to benchmark Generating Unit (GU) performance; make better-informed decisions regarding new GU construction and existing unit upgrades; improve resource focus for maintenance programs and system planning. The goal of using the information is to maximize Generating Unit performance within a company’s financial and logistical constraints. The report contains performance data for over 600 generating units in Canada. The statistics are broken out by fuel type (hydro, thermal, combustion, nuclear) and focus on unit availability and forced outage data, including mean forced outage duration, fail rate, and incapability factor metrics.
