Over the years we have been involved with many projects ranging from Planning and Programme Management to Maintenance Management Systems and in many locations including London, Vancouver, Dusseldorf and Coventry.  Here is a selection of our more recent projects:

E.ON Climate and Renewables

Eonlogo

Generic_WindFarmECR is a global business generating energy from renewable (including on- and off-shore wind turbines, hydro-electric, biomass, marine and solar-power [PV]) sources.  It is part of the E.ON group and the UK arm was previously PowerGen Renewables Ltd.
We were originally commissioned by PowerGen Renewables to undertake a study of their maintenance management requirements and adapt an existing Maximo system to their particular requirements.

 

Over a nine year period from 2003, we undertook the Design, Implementation, Data Takeon, Training and Support of their CMMS.  The platform was initially Maximo v4 but it was changed to SAP R3 in 2008 to accord with the parent business’ ERP systems.
Our responsibilities included Master Data management, data structure design, process design and implementation, training and mentoring, reporting and analysis.  This work was accomplished in a variety of locations including UK, Denmark, USA, Sweden and Germany.

During the initial stages of the assignment the business embraced the rigours of a formalised Asset and Work management system, enabling us to play a significant role in the development and prototyping of the Wind Turbine Safety Rules – which have now been adopted by the BWEA (British Wind Energy Association). As a result, the business was more in control of its widely distributed asset base and is making good progress towards better control both of costs and Service Providers.

 

Alterra Power Corporation

RWE Innogy is the Renewable Energy business of the RWE Group of Essen.  It is an international business that pools the renewable energy expertise and power plants of the RWE Group. The company plans, builds and operates facilities generating power from renewable energies. RWE Innogy aims to vigorously grow renewable energies in Europe.
rwepicWe were commissioned to research and prepare the User Requirements Specification for a CMMS for the RWE Innogy renewables portfolio (both On- and Off-shore wind farms with possible extension for Hydro-electric, Wave power, Solar Power and Biomass powered stations).

The investigations ranged from United Kingdom and Germany to Spain – and concentrated on delivering a solution together with the establishment of Work Management process, reporting regimes and asset structures to support the CMMS.

The URS (and partial Functional Specification) was successfully delivered in April 2011, and is currently being implemented.

FFSL_Portsmouthleet Support Limited (FSL) is a British company formed to run HMNB Portsmouth’s Fleet Maintenance and Repair Organisation (FMRO) on a commercial basis. The FMRO was an agency of the Ministry of Defence responsible for repair and maintenance of Royal Navy vessels.

FSL performs this task but also undertakes commercial work such as ship repair, refitting, conversion and hull fabrication, heavy engineering work and non-destructive testing for the marine and engineering sectors.  In 2012 the company was restructured, changing its name to BAE Systems Maritime – Maritime Services.

We led a team developing the Maximo CMMS to focus on the Facilities Management portion of FSL’s business – for the recording and maintenance of the civil, building and structural assets of HMNB Portsmouth.  Among the works covered was redesign of the data structures, rebuilding asset structures and extending the capabilities of FSL’s existing system to include Work Flow Management, Facilities Service Desk and Mobile Working to the system.

  • establishment of weekly co-ordination meetings for all Package Contractors
  • assessment of progress
  • management reporting and forecasting
  • supervision of planning staff
