Abstract
The work presented in this research consists of assessment and analysis for some of the operational problems that appear in Khartoum north power station after using the waxy Sudanese fuel oil instead of the imported fuel oil (bunker c) power station design fuel oil. The main problem associated with the Sudanese fuel oil is its relative high wax content, which raises its pour point and consequently generates problems in unloading process, storage and delivery in side the plant. So this research is divided into three parts, the first part deal with the unloading area problems, the second with the storage tanks problems and the last deals with delivery system problems. The adopted solutions were assessed and discussed. Moreover, further solutions were suggested to improve the situation. Negative side effects resulted from the application of some of these solutions were also discussed and assessed
