Annual maintenance is vital for any heavy industries including power plant to ensure the plants operate consistently. A proper maintenance management can reduce the failures occurrence and maintain the good performances. This paper reviews the literature on maintenance optimization mechanisms that have been utilized to solve the difficult and complex problems in power system. A brief introduction and literature review on the turnaround maintenance are included in this paper. In order to optimize the maintenance tasks of power plant systems, the tasks need to be prioritized first. Hence, this paper also presented several literatures on the methods used for maintenance prioritization. This paper includes the most related case studies and references on maintenance actions involved in power plants. The main outcome of this reviewed paper is to become a reference for the power plant people in choosing the best mechanism to be implemented in their plant so that the plant performance can be improved, specifically in term of maintenance practice.
