To consider the maintenance of a specific process plant is by definition an examination of the particular.
This paper will examine the practical maintenance of a particular process plant; the C.C.F. Plant, in a particular factory; Goulding Fertilisers, East Wall, Dublin.
The maintenance of the plant will be considered in relation to the factory as a whole and the utilisation of engineering resources on the plant will be considered in relation to the total engineering resource within the factory.
A number of particular plant items will be examined in some detail in the hope that our experiences may be of interest or practical value to others.
The paper will conclude with a brief look at what lessons we think we have learned and will suggest how these might be applied in the future, both on the C.C.F. Plant and to maintenance engineering in general.
