Asset Obsolescence Management

Nothing lasts forever, as we know.

And that of course includes the critical components underpinning the assets at the heart of your business.

You may already know from bitter experience how frustrating, time-consuming and costly sourcing replacement parts can be — especially when they’re no longer in production.

In fact, just the time lost trying to find the right spares can edge your key assets even further towards obsolescence as they become less and less profitable to run.

But it doesn’t have to be like this.

With Critica Group’s unique asset obsolescence management service, you’re no longer at the mercy of your next weak link but able to plan ahead with confidence.

We bring together our decades of experience across multiple contexts in renewables, oil and gas, and liquid and gas power generation to solve the problems caused by failing assets and often obsolete components in ways you’d possibly never considered.

Our skilled team never takes a single linear approach to asset obsolescence management — we always look at the challenge from every angle and find the creative solutions that not only work best but work within your budget and timeline.

And by getting to know your assets inside out first and planning well ahead, we can be ready to step in and procure exactly the right components for you well before failure leads to costly downtime. These can include quality upgrades and engineered replacements, all of them a fraction of the price of a full OEM asset alternative solution.

Case Studies

We knew our 20-year-old plant had obsolescence issues, so we engaged Critica Group to complete a full review. Once that was complete, we were able to integrate the recommended upgrade-based solution, and now have a further 10 years of alternative, available materials to support and ensure optimum reliability and availability. This also saved us the many millions that would have been involved in investing in new equipment.

The OEM could only offer us a complete alternative to replace our entire asset, at a cost of multiple millions — something we did not relish. So we got Critica Group to carry out a review, and by using state-of-the art upgrades and engineered direct replacements, we now have a facility that we know will be supported to keep going for many years. And we have achieved all this without the environmental, budgetary, and time impacts commissioning a new product would have entailed.
