Software and management services provider PAS is to install alarm management and control performance software and services to improve operations at Scottish Power-owned power stations across the UK.

The installation sites include gas-fired, coal-fired and hydroelectric power stations.

PAS will evaluate the performance of alarm management systems and control loops, develop improvement plans for each plant and install its PlantState suite software.

Scottish Power project manager Suzanne Mackay said the PAS technologies will help avoid abnormal operating situations, improve situation awareness and provide better control of the plants.
