OUTAGE IN A BOX®
AP+M’S ONE-STOP SOLUTION FOR YOUR PLANNED OUTAGE
Even the most well-planned outage can cost a power plant in increased downtime and costly delays. That’s why AP+M’s OUTAGE IN A BOX® simplifies sourcing + inventory with thought-out, comprehensive preparation for your next planned outage.
WHY SIMPLIFY YOUR SOURCING + INVENTORY?
Typically, your planned outage requires various activities for sourcing, purchasing, and handling your outage consumables. Without OUTAGE IN A BOX®, these can amount to time and money lost due to…
Time Lost Finding + Receiving Parts
+ Identifying consumable lists
+ Soliciting supplier quotes
+ Reviewing RFAs and selecting suppliers
+ Issuing purchase orders
+ Tracking delivery
Costly Inspections, Including
+ Combustion Inspection
+ Hot Gas Path Inspection
+ Major Inspection
WHAT’S THE RISK OF OVER- OR UNDER-PURCHASING?
Even after going through the above processes, there’s still the risk of over- or under-purchasing consumable parts for your outage.
Wasting money on unused inventory + redelivering those parts to a warehouse and dealing with restocking fees.
With under-purchasing, however, you lose time thanks to needing more parts than had originally been anticipated.
SO, WHAT’S OUTAGE IN A BOX®?
OUTAGE IN A BOX® is a complete, fully-stocked outage consumables kit secured in a conex that’s delivered directly to your site—inventory station included. Inside the box you find thousands of consumable parts, all customized to your site’s specific needs!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We ship you all of the nuts, bolts, seals, thermocouples and other consumable parts you need in a fully-stocked and secured conex before your outage begins.
During your plant’s downtime, select from the parts you need for your repairs and replacements from the on-site inventory.
Once your outage is complete, we’ll coordinate the box pickup with you and then send an invoice for only the parts used.
