Alarm Management Case Studies
By implementing ProcessVue alarm management software from M.A.C. Solutions at its West Burton B gas-fired power station, EDF Energy can now perform accurate process alarm analysis and has taken huge steps in rationalising and reducing alarm loads on operators at the site.
By implementing ProcessVue alarm management software from MAC Solutions at its Bacton and Zeebrugge gas terminals, Interconnector UK (IUK) can now perform accurate alarm analysis across the two terminals and gain an accurate picture of the number of alarms operators have to deal with.
By implementing new alarm management and KPI reporting software from MAC Solutions, engineers at a UK-based biomass power station are now able to easily and quickly identify KPIs for alarm trends and to analyse the root causes of plant upsets (i.e. events that lead to a loss of production).
By replacing their sequence of events (SOE) system with ProcessVue software, Premier Oil’s Balmoral facility has experienced zero software outages since it was installed. The 100% reliability of ProcessVue ensures that data from safety-critical plant is always logged, enabling engineers to identify the cause of a plant upset, including the sequence of events leading up to this.
By implementing MAC Solutions’ ProcessVue alarm management and printer replacement software at Drax Power Station, Drax engineers now have the ability to easily identify alarm trends and to analyse the causes of any plant upsets, including the sequence of events (SOEs) leading up to a loss of production.
