Service Agreements for rotating equipment (FlexLTP)

FlexLTP - Optimizing your operation

Protecting our customers’ investment with first class service for rotating equipment is key to Siemens’ customer support philosophy. Siemens Long Term Service Program (FlexLTP) takes this one step further, by offering a maintenance program created for you, based on your unique needs and requirements.                                                                                     Whether you want to maximize production by extending the time between inspections, choose to have your inspections at a time when your plant is already shut down, optimize life-cycle costs by equipment condition based replacements, or operate free from predetermined inspections, Siemens FlexLTP can adapt to suit your needs: Flexibility without compromise – that is what we call FlexLTP.

Tailored to fit your needs

Today’s dynamic market calls for flexible operation. By fully utilizing our expert knowledge from millions of equivalent operating hours of data, advanced component models, and more than 100 years of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) service experience, we are able to predict the lifetime of individual components for an unparalleled support for your rotating equipment. When joining us in a Long Term Program we can together make sure that operation and maintenance of your plant is always optimized, no matter what conditions prevail.

Outcomes of a FlexLTP
Increased generation

By optimizing operation, maintenance scope and intervals based on operating conditions, production and potentially revenue can be increased throughout the unit lifecycle.

Optimized lifecycle costs

Utilizing component degradation forecasting we can adapt the maintenance cycle of the rotating equipment to fit overall plant needs, and at the same time also keep flexibility to adapt if preconditions change

Increased availability

By tailoring maintenance intervals and adapt the maintenance cycle to the needs of the total plant, availability can be increased for maximized opportunity for profit generation.

Higher reliability

By utilizing our OEM experience, combining it with our monitoring and forecasting solutions, reliability can be taken to an unparalleled level and risk for operational disturbances kept to a minimum.

* Restrictions to certain technical configurations apply. Actual outcome dependent on equipment type and operating conditions.
