Thermal Power Capacity Additions Expand Opportunities in the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) Power Plant Services Markets

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

The Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) power plant services market is likely to expected to see robust growth in the coming years. This will largely be due to increasing power generation additions from both state-owned utilities and independent power producers (IPPs). The advent of combined cycle gas turbine power plants and the outsourcing philosophy of IPPs will both render new opportunities, as will the privatization and corporatization initiatives of Australian state-owned utilities.

However, on a wider scale, it is the installed base of existing thermal power plants in the region that is likely to help sustain the local service companies as well as new emerging market participants.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (, ANZ Power Plant Services Markets, reveals that revenues in this market totaled $398.2 million in 2006, and is likely to reach $540.1 million in 2013.

"The rapid increase in the number of gas turbine installations is likely to fuel the growth of the ANZ power plant services market in the medium to long term of the forecast period," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Bharath Srinivasan S. "Going forward, the population for gas turbine services is likely to increase, especially from construction of combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants."

The growth in gas-based power generation capacity can, in principle, be attributed to factors such as faster construction periods, less emission characteristics, as well as ample availability of natural gas fuel. With the installation of these new generation plants, there is likely to be an increasing reliance on the OEMs for providing spares and maintenance services. Lack of independent companies to provide services for combustion turbines also adds to a promising future for contractual services to these gas-fired power stations.

Furthermore, Australian IPPs generally trust in long-term service contracts for gas turbines, where key cost risks such as fuel and turbine maintenance are mitigated through long-term hedging and supply arrangements. Such contracts for gas turbines provide visibility and stability of earnings and cash generation over the long term. On the other hand, routine maintenance on steam turbines is generally undertaken by OEMs or internally by utilities and boiler maintenance is largely handled in-house.

With respect to the challenges facing market participants, there has been a gradual decline in the availability of skilled manpower for power plant services. This paucity of technically sound and specialty skilled personnel is causing huge pressure and service quality concers for the service providers.

"Manpower issues are likely to become more pronounced with the retirement of current employees as there is little knowledge about the assembly or repair procedures of old technology equipment, even with the utilities," says Srinivasan. "Even the OEMs have very few personnel with hands-on service experience and companies are also known to actively hire skilled personnel from their competitors during times of need."

With the obvious uncertainty in the availability of skilled manpower, multinational OEMs and non-OEM companies would augur well if they collaborate alongside and work with the local service and manpower supply companies in ANZ. Besides, power plant service providers need to be willing to offer flexible and competitive contracting procedures in order to regain market confidence.
