An IBM software platform has been selected by an electric utility company to manage resources and automate processes at a $235 million hydropower station in Pakistan.
Tenaga Nasional Bhd Remaco operates the 84-megawatt New Bong hydroelectric power complex that was built to substitute 135,000 tons of foreign oil and generate about $100 million in annual fuel savings, IBM said Friday.
TNB intends to use IBM’s Smarter Infrastructure software for predictive maintenance programs and inventory planning to meet resource demands.
Deepak Advani, IBM general manager for cloud and smarter infrastructure technology, said the company intends for the platform to function as an interconnected system for operators to manage the plant.
The plant aims to use the software, including Maximo, to gain a single view of all energy data as well as asset and service management data, according to the company.
