On the basis of the co-operation between Eurelectric and VGB it was decided to merge data collection for the availability and unavailibility of power plants. Since 2008 the data of Eurelectrc´s TherPerf-Report and VGB´s KISSY-Report are presented in one common report. The technical scientific report "Analysis of Unavailability of Thermal Power Plants" is now available for the operation decade 2002 - 2011 (pdf file).
The report provides information about weak points of equipment and power plant systems. VGB is analysing the annual unavailability (UA analysis) in order to identify the root causes, i.e. those systems causing unavailability to be able to upgrade such weak equipment. The systems and equipment to be analysed are specified according to the KKS power plant identification system.
