SCADA and CMMS applications for power plant maintenance contractors and operators

A power plant’s smooth operation is essential to the uninterrupted delivery of power to consumers. Plant maintenance contractors and operators play a vital role in keeping power plants operating economically and avoiding any operational issues after commissioning. They follow industry-leading maintenance procedures and practices, as well as rely on technologies such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Computerised Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) to carry out maintenance activities.

SCADA enables the monitoring of plant operations and machinery conditions, while CMMS helps in planning maintenance activities in advance. Power plant maintenance contractors can use CMMS to track the performance of power plant equipment and components. The technology is also used to detect faults or underperforming assets and schedule maintenance activities accordingly.
