The performance of AESI systems is guaranteed for 12 months for regular operation and in any case no longer than 18 months after the date of delivery.
- Availability - AESI guarantees that if the Biomass Boilers are operated per the written procedures and fuel qualities remain at or above the levels provided to AESI at time of system proposal, the plant availability will be >90% which allows for maintenance and unscheduled outages. After the first year of operation the plant is expected to exceed this availability when operated in accordance with the Operation and Maintenance manuals.
- Capacity - AESI guarantees that if the Biomass Boilers are operated per the written procedures and fuel qualities remain at 95% or above the levels indicated based on data provided to AESI at time of system proposal, the delivery capacity will remain at 95% or above, the name plate boiler rating.
- Emissions Limits - System emissions are fuel specific and determined through either estimated calculations from a qualified air permitting specialist or through real time emissions profiling and third party emission testing professionals. These activities are conducted during AESI exectured burn test activities.
AESI agrees to warranty (Make Good) that the system processes work as design forecasts indicate when plant operations are operated within correct protocols with fuel as specified during design.
Make Good applies to: Plant performance (efficiency and power capacity) falling below 90% of committed values for a continuous, sustained period. A continuous, sustained period is defined as “more than 24 contiguous hours”.
As advantageous as warranties and guarentees may be, the deliverable must begin with reliable, dependable, need meeting solutions.
