An expanding asset base for ESB meant more Wind Farm assets and turbine service contracts to manage, as well as more maintenance activity to schedule in total. The existing multitude of systems was delivering limited visibility of asset status and was proving difficult to control with an ever increasing portfolio. Add to that, high volumes of data and the challenge was significant.
Peacock Engineering was selected to scope, implement and support IBM Maximo 7.5 to meet ESB’s industry compliance requirements, deliver maintenance efficiencies and reduce asset downtime. Creating greater visibility of asset status and managing the asset data would provide ESB with accurate and timely information to guide decisions.
A key benefit that is being realised is visibility of asset status and control over work being done by OEM contractors who maintain many of the assets on an outsources basis.
