Efficiency in Power generation in the third world countries which Nigeria is among can never be waived aside by any responsible government. Local productions are expected to be stepped up in order to boost national economy and also put recession at bay.

The paper illuminates various ways 5S methodology can be incorporated into the industry in order to reduce losses that tend to affect efficiency. It systematically discusses 5S pillars, seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu and shitsuke, viz- a-viz power generation infrastructures. It suggests various maintenance activities that can optimise maintenance cost and gender efficiency thus dovetailing into high productivity and profits.
