“Straightforward operation”

“During the past few years we have carried through a comprehensive development of the maintenance activities at Gasgrid. This has consisted of three different projects: In the beginning of 2020 we commenced a current state analysis for the maintenance activities. In the analysis we investigated our organization structure, know-how and the potentials for the business development. The works were continued with a criticality analysis for the life cycle management’s results. In the summer 2020 we started a renewal project for the digital maintenance management system and in the autumn the competitive tendering and procurement of the technical services for the maintenance.”

“The target of the current state analysis was to highlight the picture of the organization, life cycle management status and the solutions with which we are able to maintain and develop outsourced service procurement, meaning the buyer-producer operating model. The target for the digital maintenance management system was to define and execute a procurement for an operational system, which fulfills our needs now and will be adjustable for our future needs.”

“The competitive tendering for the maintenance services was put into action with the public procurement procedure for the utilities sector. The target has been a responsibly executed service procurement with which we will in a customer-oriented way secure the maintenance of the gas transmission infrastructure in different sectors.”

“MABCO has acted in our projects as an expert, a coach and as a partner who supports and steers the development work. Their role has included organizing workshops, gathering the materials, expertise in different sectors and project management related tasks. In our opinion they have succeeded very well. In addition to the expertise, it has been a benefit that we have been able to concentrate in our daily tasks in suitable way.”

“We knew already in advance that MABCO has wide experience from the sectors under development. With them we have met the goals in defined scope and schedule and the operation has been straightforward; “We speak the same language”. They master the project-like approach and are familiar with and able to support in wide range of different kind of processes and procurements.”

“When considering our case, MABCO has been a very good choice. MABCO has been with us during the whole development project from the very beginning so they have had the possibility to learn the Gasgrid way of working and to assimilate with our vision of the foundation structure of the maintenance and life cycle management. It has been easy to carry through topics with them in logical order.”

“I believe that the cooperation has been satisfying to both parties. We both have learned from each other during the projects. I can warmly recommend MABCO as a partner for similar kind of projects.”
