Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) Remaco, the builder of Pakistan’s first private sector hydroelectric power scheme, has selected IBM (NYSE: IBM) software to streamline operations and help meet the business challenges of running the US$235 million plant. It was announced by IBM today, May 3.
The addition of this power source will replace about 135,000 tons of imported oil, reducing carbon emissions and saving Pakistan approximately US$100 million per year in fuel costs, says IBM.
“IBM’s solution will play a vital role in running the systems efficiently and helping to pave the way for rapid and full scale development of Pakistan’s hydropower potential,” said TNB president Che Khalib.
TNB Remaco selected IBM asset management software to automate its manual systems to provide predictive maintenance while helping to meet increased resource demands.
Previously, finalizing approvals and searching for relevant information was a time consuming task as data was scattered across multiple systems.
IBM software provides TNB Remaco’s power plant with a single, consolidated view of all their energy data as well as asset and service management data, enabling employees to make better informed decisions about the plant’s operations.
The solution will also assist in planning inventory to meet precise maintenance demands, making the correct parts available at the right location whenever needed.
IBM Smarter Infrastructure technology used by TNB Remaco includes IBM Maximo software. The software provides condition-based maintenance capabilities and ensures physical assets are safe, reliable and available to support an organization’s business goals, according to IBM.
