4 shows the basic process flow-sheet and the main equipment composing the plant section under analysis. The main objective of the case study is to apply the developed TCO evaluation methodology to prove its potentialities for supporting decision making. Basing on the framework presented in Sect. 1, the methodology is applied by the user’s perspective (owner and manager of the plant) dealing with the Middle of Life phase of its asset. The main potentialities expected from the evaluation of the TCO by the plant management are to support re-configuration choices through an economic quantification of the effect of technical changes in the plant.
