Skills Gaps

Based on the type of maintenance required, O4 prompts us to develop a training and documentation plan which is fit for purpose.

Skills gaps which have been uncovered are addressed through a combination of ‘on the job’, ‘one to one’, ‘classroom’ and ‘online training’, whilst gaps and in documentation are updated to bring documentation from an ‘as built’ to ‘as now’ status.


Documentation & Training

Educate your workforce/service provider in the knowledge required to perform their duties, competently keeping abreast of standards, procedures and practices related to their tasks and targets;
•On the Job Training
•Competency Assessment
•Nationalisation Training
•Mechanical, Electrical & Instrumentation Control Training
•PLC & Network Training
•Documentation Development
•Training Manuals
•Interactive Training Documentation

About O4

The O4 Approach involves working with or on behalf of the client, using industry proven techniques such as RCM, FMECA and RCA, as appropriate for the installation or operation. The result is a management controlled maintenance service which brings together:
•The Owner
•The Operator
•The OEM

The Owner

We work with equipment owners to manage their assets and supply highly detailed maintenance engineering processes, plans and procedures which can be fully tailored to specific owner strategies and assets.

The Operator

In situations where the assets are operated by a third party, we ensure the continuity and consistent approach required.


The process of managing rotating equipment is broadly similar. This gives us a shared database of historical data and experience which can be difficult for OEMs to capture using only their corporate systems. We work directly with OEMs and actively implement their Technical Service Bulletins and procedures.

The Service Provider (OFS)

Our core strength is a team of experienced rotating equipment specialists in numerous sites around the world covering a multitude of gas turbine manufacturers. Based out of Ireland and supported by seven regional offices and a number of joint ventures, OFS has a dedicated crew of field engineers. Their primary focus is on providing the appropriate operational maintenance for the client. This expertise is fully supported by our back office maintenance team which is engaged in the very latest methodologies.
