EASL - DNB Dump Steam Tunnel Supports Case Study

EASL has carried out a pipe support survey and audit, which confirmed that two adjacent pipework supports were hitting their bottom stops. This was attributed to load transfer following work carried out on adjacent support during a previous outage.  It was recommended that all three supports be replaced during the next outage. However, the supports could not be replaced without delaying the end of the outage resulting in significant delays and cost, through lost generating capacity, to the client.
