Long-Term Service Agreements (LTSA)

Long term service agreements (LTSA) are becoming key factors in determining the success for rotary machines. Performance-based long-term service agreements offer reliable plant maintenance solutions to help you manage the through-life costs of your rotating equipment. Clearly-defined performance indicators and managed risk transfer ensure that you only pay for solutions benefitting your operations.

Balancing operational issues with a continuous focus on your core business is a challenge. We offer flexible long-term service agreements providing a wide range of technical and commercial options.

Long Term Service Agreement:

The main issue in entering into a LTSA is defining its specifications with care. When and if original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are just invited to bid for maintenance services, they are more than likely to offer LTSAs that are the most lucrative for them. The implementation of a successful LTSA requires careful preparation and detailed invitation to bid specifications. Without careful planning and specifying what is actually needed, you may well end up with proposals which are not in line with your expectations. Different proposals might not even be comparable. This not only makes evaluation different proposals difficult but also considerably prolongs the period of contracting the services. To offer costumers all the services they may need; we have organized themselves to be present in the market as suppliers of related services such as those of operating the machines and providing for their maintenance. This service activity includes the so called Long Term Service Agreements (LTSA) which usually last several years and offed the costumer five main benefits:

1-   The costumer knows in advance how much maintenance will cost, eliminating uncertainty.

2-  The cost of maintenance can be linked exclusively to the annual production level (cubic meters of gas handled for gas compression station)

3- Maximizing production is the common objective of the both costumer and manufacturer, and both are recompensed in proportion to the production level: consequently, the plant will be maintained at highest efficiency and constantly update technologically, eliminating the risk of obsolescence … often the OEM shares risks and rewards with the costumer:

4-  The costumer’s personnel are kept constantly informed of new technologies introduced into the plant and trained about the equipment and its operation and maintenance.

5-  The customer is not obliged to keep and manage a spare parts warehouse with the looking up of capital this implies, and the supplier can benefit by sharing its warehouse and inventory with more than one customer.
