 Our Story

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​From the beginning, SPS® has been committed to helping our customers understand how their running Reliability and Availability stacks up with their “peers.”  Our customers operate some of the most sophisticated facilities and complex technologies in the world.  SPS understands that their Reliability & Availability Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are a reflection of their O&M practice.  ORAP Benchmarks help operators understand how their performance compares with the fleet so that changes can be made as required.  Data is abundant in power facilities, the competitive market is beginning to place a premium value on “good data”…. ORAP has it! 

ORAP was created in the mid 1970’s to drive change and progress as well as to support and lead to the technology that exists today.  Sal DellaVilla, our CEO and Founder, had the personal belief and commitment in the value of ORAP to ensure that it would continue to support the owner/operators and OEMs to keep a focus on performance.  Today, ORAP does just that.  As the market focuses on price and efficiency in their buy decisions, SPS is there to ensure that questions of Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Durability are easily answered.​​

 Trusted Partners

Without the support of our strong group of trusted partners, SPS would not be the company that we are today.  From the start, organizations like the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), the United States Energy Association (USEA), The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and the Western Turbine Users Group (WTUI), to name a few, have had a lasting effect on SPS as a business.
