An expanding asset base for ESB means more Wind Farm assets, turbine service contracts to manage and more maintenance activity to schedule. 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 outsourced basis.
“Peacock Engineering offers excellent technical expertise, they are a good fit with our own organisation and they are able to demonstrate experience of similar successful implementations to our own. Since the completion,n we became the first wind farm utility to be PAS55 certified by Lloyds Register.”
