Hong Kong Society for Quality (HKSQ) was organized a technical visit to CLP Shamshuipo Centre on 2 Nov 2013 which was the first visit in World Quality Month. The visit included a tour of Power Quality Workshop and a presentation on PAS 55 and CLP Power's strategic asset management (SAM) system.
In the beginning, Mr. John KK Leung (Engineer I, Systems Engineering Branch, Technical Services, CLP) gave an introduction speech and showed a film to us.
The beautiful model matched the film show we saw.
Then we played a game to demonstrate the fault clearance mechanism. Then John explain the Power Quality included Interruption, Voltage Dip and Harmonic Distortion. He said Power Quality was more than Supply Reliability. For voltage dips would be caused by Lighting, Vegetation, Animal, Excavation and Customer Equipment.
After that John introduced the different performance of high intensity discharge lamp against voltage dips. The first two lamps from leaf hand side were turn down when the voltage dip happened. The others were no impact especially LED lamp.
Mr. Peter Fung (Vice Chairman, HKSQ) presented a souvenir to Mr. John Leung.
We took a group photo in front of the Power Quality Workshop.
The second part was a seminar. The speaker was Mr. CP Ng (Sr. Performance Management Manager, Power Systems Business Group, CLP) and his topic entitled "Asset Management Experience CLP Power". Mr. Ng introduced Power System Business Group (PSBG) background and organization.
Then he showed their asset management experience through the history line. They used standard asset management frameworks included Strategic Asset Management (SAM) model, PAS 55 - Current Standard of Asset Management, and ISO 55000 - International Standard to be published in 2014.
Mr. Ng shared their asset management practices through Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle (ISO 55000) and the Asset Life Cycle management by PAS 55 (e.g. Asset Planning, Construction, Operation and Disposal). It was found that PSBG was exceptionally mature as an asset management organization.
Asset Management System built upon existing Integrated Management System (IMS) which provided a comprehensive platform for their SHEQ performance. Moreover, it could utilize many IMS tools such as risk management and change management to fulfill system objectives.
Finally, Mr. Ng mentioned their six major business goals stated in Asset Management Policy as follows:
- World-class Supply Reliability
- Environmental Protection
- Customer Satisfaction
- Optimal Life Cycle Cost
- Systematic Risk Management
- Safety & Zero Incident
Their critical success factors in asset management were discussed. They were "Sustained Organization Commitment", "Organization Alignment", "Change Management", "Collaboration between Asset Management & Service Management" and "Information System Support".
