Leveraging technical expertise, extensive component inventory, a robust supply chain, and a network of global repair facilities, we mitigate operational risks.
Expedited and long lead-time solutions meet maintenance demands and reduce capital spending.
In today’s economy, turbomachinery operators are being asked to aggressively manage inventory, cash and operating expenses. However, they are also often looking for shorter cycle repairs, cycle parts purchases and deliveries. This dichotomy often results in greater risk than expected and higher costs for facilities.
By changing the traditional buying approach, operators are managing and overcoming this challenge. They are benefiting from high quality, back-to-back outage warranties, short cycle deliveries and lower than competitive market pricing.
EthosEnergy has developed a solution that requires the customer to purchase only a portion of the overall parts life needed to meet maintenance requirements thereby significantly reducing capital cost requirements.
Term Maintenance Agreements
EthosEnergy provides customized solutions that mitigate the technical and financial risks associated with plant operation through the ability to deliver a total plant solution including capital parts, component repairs and maintenance services. A typical term maintenance agreement offers broad scope provisions for gas turbines, steam turbines, generators and compressors with full-term responsibility for parts, repairs and field services.
Taking a partnership approach, we can integrate our operational, maintenance, performance and overhaul capabilities with your resources to efficiently and effectively manage business risks to achieve greater predictability of costs and asset utilization.
