Since its incorporation in 2012, HERMES hit the ground running in partnership with the Niger Delta Power Holding Company, a holding company of the National Integrated Power Project (NIPP) operating at five power plants (Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) and Open Cycle Gas Turbine (OCGT)) across Nigeria.
Hermes Engineering is also involved in manpower services support to Mainstream Energy Solutions Limited (MESL) since September 2017. This service covers Kainji and Jebba Hydro Electric Power Plants where MESL have done a highly commendable job since taking over the two stations in 2013.

Our Core Business

Facility Management, Operation and Maintenance, Manpower Training

Our business is facility management and operation and maintenance: Facility Management, Operation and Maintenance are essentially tools to maintain and increase availability, reliability, efficiency, cost reduction, productivity and reduced down-time.
We are dedicated to planning and managing the operation and maintenance of power plants to ensure that safe operational performance is optimized, that availability is maximized and that cost is minimized. In short, we specialize in operating and maintaining our clients' production facilities and power plants so that they do what they should at minimum cost.
Our Operation and Maintenance Services include:

  • Audit Services. Hermes analyzes portions or all of your O&M functions, recommend areas of improvement and estimate payback potential.
  • Oversight Support Services. Hermes provides continuing oversight and advice on areas of improvement. Regular reporting to management can also be provided.
  • On-site O&M Integrated Services. Hermes provides a complete on-site staff or employ current plant staff and handle the daily O&M functions.....
  • On-site Support Services. Hermes can provide management support in areas of project management, commissioning and re-commissioning of plant and plant items after major overhaul and re-habilitation and small capital project design and construction.
Operation and Maintenance

Operation and Maintenance is a comprehensive, specialized activity that starts with understanding the plant and its processes, together with the objectives of the owner. Effective maintenance increases the 'up-time' of the facilities – the time the plant is available for production. In addition to increasing operating revenue, professional operation and maintenance also extends the productive lifetime of the assets, resulting in a reduction in the clients' capital expenditure and a timely return on investment.
Our thorough knowledge of all the major types of plant, equipment and components means that otherwise disparate and specific operation and maintenance activities can be consolidated, coordinated and managed by us your trusted independent partner.
Power Plant Training

The electrical power generation process is continuously exposed to catastrophic loss, such as explosions, accidents and burns from unexpected equipment failure or lockout/tagout procedures that are not followed. These procedures are in place to control the high potential for equipment and human error which can result in serious threats to your workforce and the overall well being of your operation. Keeping your power plant personnel competent, safe and well trained is clearly your most expedient route to risk reduction.
Occupational Safety & Hazard Administration (OSHA) regulates the operation and maintenance of electric power generation, control, transformation, transmission and distribution lines and equipment under 29 CFR 1910.269. There are specific requirements for "qualified" employees who must be trained in the safety-related procedures that pertain to their respective job assignments and related power plant generation equipment.
This training plan is designed to improve knowledge and skills by providing an understanding of components, safe operation and proper power plant maintenance procedures. Areas covered include boilers, turbines, combined cycle, steam cycle, coal handling, environmental protection, heat transfer, water treatment, startup/shutdown, feedwater systems, furnaces, pollution control and safety, among others.
HERMES Engineering offers a complete package of training programs in Power Plant Operation and Maintenance Services which are aimed at developing the needed skilled manpower that is currently lacking in the Nigerian power industry. The complete packages which are available for offer to our clients are as shown below. However, our package can be modified to suite the individual needs of our clients.

Mode of Presentation

Our training programs are presented as complete packages of both classroom and hands-on the job training to suite the requirement of our clients.
Our classroom training packages are delivered in an audio-visual presentation. This enables the trainee to have a mental picture of structures, processes, activities and actions that are involved in the operation and maintenance of any system, plant items etc. in the power plant.
Our "hands-on the job training" involves site specific skill acquisition and participation of the trainee in the operation and maintenance on site. The trainee at this stage is allowed to take part in on-going operation and maintenance activities which enables him to develop the right skills and confidence required to perform with moderate supervision.
Resource Persons

For effective presentation of our training packages, HERMES uses internationally trained resource persons to deliver the packages in an internationally accepted format. HERMES draws her resource persons from a pool of experienced Trainers from outside the country. Our resource persons are trained and have worked with reputable organizations, GE, GEC, Siemens, etc in power plant operation and maintenance.
