A 70-MW combined-cycle power plant was constructed in January 1989 at a manufacturing plant located in York, Pennsylvania. The purpose of the power plant was to provide the manufacturing plant with a reliable source of lower-cost process steam and electricity and to produce excess electricity for sale to the local utility company. This paper is an overview of the planning and implementation of the operation and maintenance (O&M) practices which have resulted in superior cash flow from plant operations. A primary element of the power plant project was to include the O&M needs in plant design, construction, commissioning, and start-up.
