Cooling tower is an important part of power plant. The efficiency of power plant is directly depends on the effectiveness of cooling tower. In cooling tower scheduled maintenance and shutdown maintenance is a problem which affects its effectiveness and performance of cooling tower. In cooling tower shutdown maintenance required in every 2 to 3 year periods at this period the whole plant will be shutdown, and require 28 to 35 days maintenance so that cooling tower will be in its best working condition. In every cooling tower manufacturer provide the scheduled maintenance check list so that the worker will perform their maintenance as per given instruction. In present work optimization of shutdown maintenance strategy is done so that the time elapsed in maintenance will reduce and the requirement of man power will be reduced.
