RAPID Case Study | East Kentucky Power Cooperative
Organization: East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC) is an electric generation and transmission (G&T) organization serving a customer population of 1.1 million throughout Kentucky with four power plants. Over 530,000 homes and businesses in 87 Kentucky counties depend on EKPC and its 16 owner-member cooperatives for safe, reliable, affordable electric power.
Challenge: In today’s changing electric power-transmission environment, as some types of plants sunset and inventory on the shelves at other plants is no longer available, parts availability is significantly decreasing and lead-times increasing.
Solution: Cooper turned to Curtiss-Wright’s Fossil Operations and Maintenance Information Service for energy industry expertise.
Results: RAPID’s massive parts database has helped EKPC locate, buy, and sell engineered spare parts and identify solutions to obsolescence issues.
