Government of Malaysia has acknowledged that its sources of fossil fuel are depleting and stresses the need to seek other forms of energy sources as critical and of strategic importance for its long-term energy security.The government continues to undertake efforts to manage both non-renewable and renewable energy resources to meet the energy demands of Malaysia's rapidly growing economy; in particular, Malaysian government's renewable energy efforts promote the biomass power generation and co-generation in the palm oil mills.However, Power producers must also consider the nature of power generation, i.e. uninterrupted electric service and environmental impact, which requires high reliability, stability and safety. Industrial organisations are constantly in search of new solutions and strategies to develop and increase their competitive advantage. This paper discusses the pros and cons of one such solution, outsourcing maintenance in power generating plants in palm oil mills and outlines, maintenance outsourcing process, and selection criteria of Maintenance Service Provider.
