More than 1,000 leading utilities and 100% of North American ISOs/RTOs rely on the PI System for real-time critical operational data
Strategic Approaches To Data Management, Analytics, And IT/OT Convergence: Webinar
As IT/OT convergence continues to rise, the proliferation of connected assets in the Power & Utilities industry has resulted in a massive increase in data availability. However, the sheer volume and variety of data has outpaced the ability to analyze it to develop actionable insight.
Get In Shape For ISO 55000: Taming The Tide Of Data To Transform Electric Utility Operations
Your organization generates an enormous amount of data that could help you improve your utility’s performance, but if it resides in separate organizational silos with different naming and governance standards, it will be difficult to use data in a way that enables meaningful, timely action.
Ansaldo Energia Utilized The Cloud To Increase Asset Availability And Reliability While Reducing Maintenance Costs
Ansaldo Energia is a 160-year old company headquartered in Genoa, Italy and a leading producer of thermoelectric power generation plants with a focus on plant engineering, manufacturing, and service. The company has over 100 power plants and 300 gas turbines around the world and provides remote monitoring services for customers in 13 countries. At the 2016 OSIsoft EMEA Users Conference, Sandro Gollini, a Diagnostic System Engineer at Ansaldo Energia, and Giuseppe di Bartolo, owner of TQService, discussed how Ansaldo is using the PI System for remote asset monitoring and predictive maintenance.
Vattenfall Hydro Discovers New Efficiencies In Condition-Based Maintenance
Representing over 50 percent of energy production in Sweden, hydro power is the backbone of Sweden’s energy system. With about 520 employees Vattenfall Hydro Power is the third largest hydro power provider in Europe. The utility manages 55 large-scale power plants and about 50 smaller-scale plants in Sweden and Finland with an annual production of 30-35 TWh and a capacity of about 8.300 MW. “We’ve been operating hydropower units for over 100 years,” noted Maintenance Development Engineer Magnus Holmbom in a presentation at OSIsoft’s 2015 EMEA Users’ Conference.
Kansai Electric Reduced Costs By $3M Per Year In One Plant Alone
For numerous years, Kansai Electric Power Co., Japan’s second largest power company, operated as a regional monopoly, providing the majority of power to the Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe areas. However, in 2011, the Fukushima earthquake triggered a tsunami that disabled the power supply and cooling at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, resulting in one of the worst nuclear meltdowns since Chernobyl. After the crisis, in 2016, the Japanese government passed the largest energy reforms since 1951, closing most of its nuclear plants, and fully liberalizing the nation’s electrical market, which until then consisted of ten regional monopolies.
Scrubgrass: Data Saves Jobs In Coal Country
When your business model is exquisitely sensitive to a changing environment, an investment in real-time data can make the difference between survival and shutdown. That was the case for the Scrubgrass Generating Plant, a 35-employee, 85-megawatt waste-coal-fired power plant in Kennerdell, Pennsylvania. In the last few years, Scrubgrass has used OSIsoft data systems to overcome new market challenges that have already shuttered similar plants.
Xcel Energy Uses The PI System To Improve Wind Forecasting And Save $46 Million In Operation Costs
Xcel Energy provides power for 3 million electric customers and 1.9 million natural gas customers across eight states. According to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), it has been America’s leading provider of wind-generated power for the past 11 years, and the company holds a world record for electricity generated from wind power.
Data To People: How AGL Energy Used The PI System To Empower Employees
In 1837, Australian Gas Light Energy (AGL) was founded in Sydney, Australia. At the time, Sydney was a small colonial outpost with less than 35,000 people, and “grid management” consisted of operating a few gas lamps. Today, AGL manages one third of the energy of Australia’s eastern seaboard, where most of the nation’s population lives.
7 Ways To Get Greedy With Your Information
We often hear that data is the currency of the future, but it’s actually the currency of right now for energy-generation, transmission, and distribution companies.
Mission Critical Data For Reliable Power In The Age Of Renewables
The rapid growth of renewable energy deployments on grids worldwide has profoundly changed the electric power value chain. Professionals at every link in that chain—from control room operators from generating fleet managers to regional transmission operators—face operational challenges that simply did not exist even a decade ago.
