Enhance installation safety


and reliability with MP4 services
Get 4 detailed plans to improve your electrical installation

Get a plant-wide
electrical assessment
MP4 services give you a clear vision
of your installation, so you can:

Maximise production levels


by increasing installation availability and quality

Improve your OPEX

by providing a roadmap to optimise your operations and maintenance

Prioritise investments
and optimise your CAPEX

Increase safety

and reduce electrical risk levels

Predict failures

and act before they happen

Replicate

some or all recommendations at other sites

MP4 improvement plans show you the way


Each MP4 assessment delivers 4 detailed improvement plans, as well as a summary of critical safety issues. You get:

Maintenance Plan
A description of the
level of maintenance
to be performed
The stress and reliability
levels of critical devices
A strategy for the
maintenance
plan schedule

Modernisation Plan
A list of equipment at the
end of its service life and
proposals for available
retrofit solutions
Advice on improving
installation performance
Suggestions on how
to adapt your
installation to meet new
business requirements

Monitoring Plan
A predictive approach
to anticipate potential
device failure
Energy quality and
availability indicators
Opportunities for energy
savings in relation to the
solutions deployed

Management Plan
Safety recommendations
for technical staff
Service contracts
with respect to your
subcontracting policy
Management of
spare parts
Competency
management including
expertise and training
Data management via

Critical safety issues

An MP4 assessment helps you to identify critical safety issues such as:
Incorrect breaking capacity
Absence of interlocking devices
Insufficient personnel protection
Unprotected access to live parts

Oil & Gas

How MP4 services work


Our electrical consultants partner with your teams during an MP4 installation assessment. In every step they are supported
by professional software integrating Schneider Electric know-how.

Step 1

Specify your electrical energy needs and assess your current capabilities
The first step of an MP4 service consultation involves:
Understanding your process & quantifying your financial risks
Identifying the critical points in your process
Making a link with the electrical network, and highlighting
devices or busbars that could trigger these high-risk events

Locating the main energy consumption points


Gaining an understanding of your current and future
operations & maintenance organisation and capabilities

Step 2

Assess equipment and evaluate network robustness


During Step 2, we:

MP4 assessments
are delivered
in 1 to 2 weeks by
electrical experts

Build a stress indicator for each set of equipment, based on:


- environmental conditions (e.g. humidity, temperature, salinity)
- operating conditions (e.g. load rate, number of operations)
- equipment ageing

Carry out a reliability study to evaluate the robustness


of network design in relation to the critical points
identified in Step 1
Classify each set of equipment according to the probability
of it contributing to undesired events

Step 3

Rate criticality levels


In Step 3, we combine stress and reliability levels to rate the criticality of each set of equipment and define
the appropriate service policy:
Critical equipment (e.g. predictive maintenance, emergency
recovery plan, upgrading action)

Major equipment (e.g. preventive maintenance)


Minor equipment (e.g. periodic inspection)

Step 4

Draw up plans and share conclusions


Based on the output of Step 3, the following deliverables are consolidated:
