DUTIES PERFORMED
Position at MARAFIQ Power Generation (512.5 MW, 9 GTGs & 5 HRSGs). Shift Supervisor I worked at GE Gas Turbines, responsible for: Starting, synchronizing, load variation, fuel change-over for all the gas turbines from LCR (local control room), by operating the Mark-V control system through monitor screen and with the coordination of CRO. GT-9 was having the problem in auto synchronization, therefore shift supervisor has to synchronize manually matching the voltage, frequency and phase angle. Breaker was closed at the 0 point when synchroscope was rotating in clockwise direction. Gas turbine was started after repair, maintenance and then its associated HRSG was started to supply steam to the common steam header for Desalination Plants. Maintaining steam supply at optimum pressure and flow to the desalination. Testing & commissioning after repair of Gas Turbines and their associated HRSGs. Compliance and audit in all areas of Health, Safety and Environment and application of British Safety Rules as applicable to the Power Station for all the fault and preventive maintenance jobs and activities. Safety audit and reporting the near miss. To provide safety isolation of the plant. Isolation was made and permit was prepared during the night shift and to be issued in the next morning for the day ahead planned jobs. I was providing leadership, representation and supervision of all the operators, taking care of the safe operation of the Gas Turbine Power Generation and Steam Generation. During the morning shift, I was representing the other shifts in the morning PDR meeting for discussing the plant problems and their solutions.

I used SAP R/3 to raise and monitor notifications for plant defects. I have worked with multicultural and multi-disciplinary staff from various nationalities like Saudis, Egyptians, Pakistani, Indian, Pilipino, Sri Lankans, Bangladeshis and others. I learnt new Technical Skills, Marafiqs Company Procedures, Environmental Procedures, British Safety Rules, Key Performance Indicators, Emergency Procedures, Black-Out Restoration Procedures etc.

Positions at KAPCO (1600 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant). I have worked at the following positions in chronological order. i. Senior Shift Engineer (Shift Charge Engineer) I worked as Shift Charge Engineer at 1600 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant which consists of three major blocks having 4 Siemens Gas Turbines V 94.2, 4 GE Gas Turbines Frame 9, and 5 Steam Turbines ABB Condensing type. I was responsible controlling, directing and training shift operators and Shift Engineers. I was responsible for:

Starting, synchronizing, load variation, fuel change-over for all the GTs. These units were started, according to the load demand, during the evening peak hours in combined cycle mode and stopped late night after peak hours, some units remained in operation. Normally, the starting of gas turbines was carried out from LCR (local control room). Their control is speedtronic Mark-IV. Testing & commissioning after repair of a Gas Turbine, HRSG and STG. To make sure compliance in all areas of Health, Safety and Environment and application of British Safety Rules as applicable to the Power Station for all the fault and preventive maintenance jobs and activities. Training of the operation staff (operators and trainee engineers) with the help of technical training material. Understanding the operation procedures and instructions issued by the Operation Manager for operations team. Attending the daily production meeting with operation and maintenance managers and engineers and discussing the problems and its solution. Leading the planning meeting in the evening and deciding for day ahead jobs. Then permits were prepared during the night shift and issued in the next morning. Attending the budget meeting, performance review meeting, health & safety meeting, objective & target meeting. On daily basis we were doing calculation of plant performance and heat rate by computing the parameters as part of shift report. During the shift hours, if any emergency arises, I act as incident controller. I also acted a very important role during black-out restoration. I participated in preparation of a guide line and identification of the breakers and selection of responsible persons to act under the supervision of incident controller for the quick restoration. I was responsible to make sure that the plant meets the maximum availability, reliability, efficiency, generation and cost targets, safely and within IMS environmental limits. I make sure the safe, reliable and economical operation of all the units as per NPCC load demand. I have got authorization as Safety Controller after class room and practical training and successful completion of tests and interviews. I am authorized for applying safety precautions for Mechanical Plant (Main Plant and BOP) and Electrical Apparatus for LV, MV and HV. I prepared routine shutdown & trips data by calculating equivalent operating hours of the Gas Turbine Factored fired hours and this data was used for outage planning for Combustion Inspection (CI), Hot Gas Path Inspection (HGPI) and Major Overhauling (MO) for Gas Turbines, HRSG and Steam Turbines.

After investigation, I have identified many points due to which plant load was being affected and thus overall combined cycle efficiency was improved. ii. Safety Controller & HSE Engineer

I was responsible to make sure compliance in all areas of Health, Safety and Environment and application of British Safety Rules as applicable to the Power Station for all the fault and preventive maintenance jobs and activities. I was responsible for overall Health and Safety issues, ensuring safety standards, safety checks and audits. Key Performance Indicators about health & safety are measured. Ensure that safety standards are maintained and continually seek ways to improve safety standards. To Plan and implement safety and health programs and promotional activities (e.g. inspections, campaigns and competitions) that improve safety and health awareness. Establish and maintain a system incident reporting, investigation and analysis as stipulated in the HSE manual. Conduct Safety Department Review at least once every quarter to review the achievements of the Safety and Health Objectives and improvements to the HSE manual. Investigate and report all reportable accidents: internally to relevant persons, and externally to the relevant authorities. Brief and instruct sub-contractors on the safety and health procedures and instructions that they and their employees are required to comply with.

Training Engineer

As Training Engineer, I have been working as part of the Human Resource (HR) department for the Training & Development of all employee of my Company. Training Need Analysis (TNA) was carried out with the help of respective sectional heads for their staff, training requirements wee identified, annual training plan was prepared and then Internal and External trainings were arranged. I worked as a Technical Trainer as well. Having a vast experience in Operations Department, I have prepared technical training material, operating procedures and instructions for operations team. I have written and prepared many books (with the help of O&M Manuals), picture taken during overhauling were also included in these books. These are very relevant books for the Operation Staff and Engineers which describe the theory, operation techniques, parameters and limits about the Gas Turbines and Steam Turbines in Combined Cycle mode. I have applied the following strategy, at KAPCO, for getting quick and better understanding of Operators while they remain on-duty, and I found it very useful for trainees and acceptable by Managers.
1.

Started with back to basics: A week program for refreshing the basic knowledge regarding valves, pumps, turbines, generators, transformers, motors, switchgears, C&I. Identify subject matter expert within team and make them present the topic to the team. This is really useful, while people start understanding advanced plants, they forget core basics. Break team in to four groups. Break plant systems in to four groups. Make each group responsible for study of the assigned groups. This should basically involve, description, basic specifications, P&IDs, Operation philosophy, Trouble shooting. Ask each group to present topics to other groups. This really initiates self learning approach. Field rounds: Group responsible for particular plant area should conduct detailed field round along with P&IDs. Each one must have their own copy of P&IDs. Each and every piping, instruments and locations must be reviewed during field rounds. Assessment: It is important to assess the level of learning, Conduct a test for competency assessment. Do gap analysis and implement corrective actions.

SOP: Making team write SOP is best exercise. Writing SOP is really a task of putting all knowledge together. If SOPs are already written, ask teams to review those.

6. Operating Limits: Learning and reviewing plant operating limits was made a standard practice. It also created understanding of the reasons why this is the upper or lower limit. Last but not least, demonstration of deep interest by Department Manager in this activity is key to success. Close follow up, regular involvement and surprise dip checks affects quality of Training process. Encouragement by IMS audits: Training plans was asked from all the departments during IMS audits. This encouraged the training needs. All the departments in Operation and Maintenance asked me to help them.
