Technical Services

Electrification Management :

Planned Maintenance:

Planned maintenance means the act of maintaining to preserve from deterioration by the use of appropriate resources and pro-active and pre-emptive actions, including the systematic inspection, cleaning, calibrating, measuring and recording, making of minor adjustments, testing, replacing of minor parts and any other similar actions necessary to prevent deterioration, to assure reliability to improve the availability.

Planned maintenance should therefore also include the removal from the system of unreliable components, equipment or sub-systems and replacement with components, equipment or sub-systems which will improve reliability.

Planned maintenance also means the scheduled upgrading and the restoration of the system, any sub-systems, or components to a condition equal to the original specification in the event of a random fault, failure or damage. Corrective maintenance includes the subsequent repair or replacement of any components found to be defective, irrespective of the course.

Planned maintenance is a pro-active maintenance activity arising from scheduled inspections.

Emergency Maintenance:

Emergency maintenance means maintenance which requires immediate action because of its criticality. Critical means faults or damage related to the system, which will result in the electricity reticulation or distribution systems not being available. It is a reactive maintenance activity which also includes after hours break downs.

Management information system:

Ulundi uses a MS Access database computerised management information systems which allows the following benefits:

· All work is recorded in a computerized database in terms of a worksorder per job.

· All worksorders can be assessed in terms of hours spent, resources utilized, Km’s traveled per vehicle per job.

· Performance analysis reports can be drawn from the system.

Roads and stormwater maintenance:

Maintenance of existing access roads and stormwater systems within the Municipality will be dealt with as follows for the current financial year:

  • Revise yearly program for planned maintenance
  • Perform maintenance according to year plan.
  • Identify critical problem areas.
  • Perform planned maintenance

Road rehabilitation:

Due to excessive rainfall and a lack of sufficient funds to perform adequate maintenance, the condition of various roads in Ulundi has deteriorated over the past couple of years.

One of the most important factors that affect the remaining life of these roads negatively is the ingress of water into the layerworks of the road. The combination of blocked storm water systems and water entering the layerworks of the road leads to the rapid deterioration of these roads.

The project for the current financial year will address the upgrading of 10 streets including storm water systems. The total lengths of the roads are approximately 1.5 km long. The upgrading of the existing storm water system will prevent flooding, to a great extent, in the lower lying areas.

Buildings:

· Council building maintenance

· Replacement of Windows

· Maintenance of roofs and gutters

· Maintenance of toilets and kitchens
