Drax Power Station
Drax Power Station reduce the cost and boost the efficiency of essential maintenance processes with IBM Enterprise Asset Management solutions
Drax Power Station is the largest, cleanest and most efficient coal-fired power station in the UK. Its six units have a total capacity of approximately 4,000 MW – typically producing enough power to meet 7-8% of the UK’s electricity requirements.
To support its long-term business strategy, Drax Power Station wanted to boost operational cost efficiency by ensuring that it was not over-stocking high-value components – but how?
Drax Power worked with gold level accredited IBM Premier Business Partner BPD Zenith to refresh its supply chain, asset and work management processes with IBM Maximo Asset Management solutions – providing clear visibility of stock levels and the historical data needed to forecast requirements.
Tracking stock usage over time will enable Drax Power to forecast optimal stock levels, reduce over-stocking and support the future of the business with up to £5 million in cost savings.
