Power Generation & Utilities
BPD Zenith have worked with a variety of Power Generation and Utilities companies. Our Power Generation Clients range from the operators of onsite combined heat and power plants to large-scale conventional power stations. We have recently implemented IBM Maximo Asset Management, including the Maximo Health, Safety & Environment Manager add on, at the largest coal-fired power station in Europe which is simultaneously undergoing partial conversion to biomass.
In the water distribution industry our Clients have ranged from Thames Water, one of the world’s largest water and waste water companies, to water-only companies with less than a million connections.
The highly complex systems that Power Generation and Utilities companies manage, require a robust and highly available Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to ensure that they are safe, compliant and profitable. More specifically a CMMS for this industry must address:
- Large, Complex Hard Assets
- Preventative Maintenance Regimes
- Work Management Approvals
- Purchasing & Inventory
- Resource Scheduling through Crews & Skills
- Safety & Incident Management
- Problem, Cause & Remedy Analysis
- Smart Metering & Condition Monitoring
- Tools & Asset Calibration
