Combined gas cycle - Fos-Sur-Mer - France

ENNOVIA accompanied by the site operator right from the engineering phase to facilitate the site maintenance & operation.

Based in Fos-sur-Mer, the central Combigolfe possesses an annual electricity generation of 2.6 TWh. Approximately equivalent to the annual consumption of 520,000 households. Combigolfe has to supplement essential electricity production supply to the Provence-Alpes-Côte-D’Azur region of France.

The Combigolfe combined gas cycle (CGC) uses a gas turbine and a conventional steam turbin. The energy efficiency is nearly 58%, and contributes to the reduction and emissions of greenhouse gases and CO2.

Combigolfe construction works were launched in January 2008 with Alstom. The construction lasted almost three years and involved (depending on the period), between 600 and 800 people.

Our client, the plant operator must prepare the organization for the maintenance of the facility, and the intelligence of its CMMS (SAP PM).
The Engie center (ex GDF-SUEZ) based in Fos-Sur-Mer provided Ennovia with a complete mission to accomplish:

  • Development of the site tree (12,000 items),
  • Management and integration of the maintenance documentation (Ennov5 and Documentum),
  • Site surveys,
  • Technical support for the preparation for the maintenance engineering of combined gas cycle :
    • CMMS administration,
    • Review of the facility,
    • Preparation of the outage and maintenance of the CGC,
    • Creating a list of spare parts.

The Ennovia team used the QuickBrain software throughout the project for carrying out different tasks and in turn effectively prepare for full plant operations and also to accompany the teams throughout the operation of the site. The technical competence of the Ennovia team associated with the power of the QuickBrain software allowed a faultless start and at the same time respected the various schedules.
