A global operator with ownership vision

At GPG, we are a unit engaged in the provision of Operation and Maintenance services to third parties. We offer the experience and expertise of GPG to power station owners requiring a very high level of results.

Supported by professionals from around the world and over 100 years of experience in the operation of power stations, clients obtain the same quality and level of service as received by all other GPG power stations from the outset.

All technologies

All manufacturers

Siemens, Alstom, GE, Mitsubishi,
Andritz, Voith, Wartsila, etc.

Besides being an independent service provider with no conflict of interests, having worked with market-leading equipment manufacturers and constructors, and having over 100 years of experience in the operation and maintenance of power stations, we look after our clients’ assets as if they were our own: meticulously caring for the useful life of assets, maximising their profitability, streamlining their performance and availability, and minimising their consumption and operating costs. This experience makes us an option that minimises project risk: offering increased security to the owner, financiers and insurance companies by facilitating management in investment projects.

To do so, we have developed such operational tools and improvements as CESOM – an innovative monitoring and supervision centre for the operations at all power stations owned by the company based on “big data”, which provides significant added value to our company. Our comprehensive management of power generation assets is supported by external audits and certification. The audits allow correct and sustainable management of the asset to be corroborated.

Our Services

We provide a unique service in two stages:

Short term: Mobilisation

A stage prior to the launch of commercial operations by the facility. At this stage, we recruit personnel, implement systems, train personnel, get to know the facility, identify room for improvement from the standpoint of future operations by the plant, and prepare operation and maintenance procedures and plans.
