Working in a China coal fired steam power plant is challenging.. We have many experience of it. Chinese power plant use different standard. It’s GB standard. Minimum English manual operation and maintenance book also is my challenge. It made me study hard, to understand operation procedure. As we know that operation and maintenance manual book take important role to assure proper operation and maintenance. With proper operation and maintenance equipment life time can stay along time. Chinese also has low English speaking capability. It made me difficult to coordinate with them. Our Company Mission is make sure PT.
