Operation and Maintenance

The long-term success of infrastructure projects is heavily dependent on sound operation and maintenance. Infrastructure project operation and maintenance activities include various ongoing routine and non-routine operation and maintenance actions to maintain safe, effective, and efficient operations of infrastructure facilities. Adequate and cost-effective operations and actions are important to maintain safety, protect the environmental, and maintain the functionality of the infrastructure project. Sound environmental, social, and health and safety management and sustainability actions should be fully integrated into the planning and execution of project operation and maintenance. These can help promote improved environmental sustainability and quality of life for the community, and reduce finite natural resource consumption, saving financial resources in turn.
