The integration of SCADA with asset management systems may be on the wish-list for many companies in the energy and utilities sector, but Infinis is one of the first to have implemented it successfully
Working with Peacock Engineering, an IBM Business Partner that specialises in service and asset management consultancy projects, Infinis decided to integrate the SCADA and BMS alarms into its IBM® Maximo® Asset Management asset management system, creating a comprehensive incident management system (IMS).
Centralises 90 percent of operational management in a single system, making it easier for staff to manage more than 500 incidents and 2,000 work orders per week.
“By combining our in-house telemetry skills with Peacock Engineering’s expertise in IBM Maximo, we have been able to create a system that genuinely transforms the way handle incidents at our sites. The ability to predict where failures are most likely to occur ultimately leads to fewer outages, less emergency maintenance work, and greater total production across our generation infrastructure.”
