The nuclear power industry faces constant price pressure from sectors like natural gas and renewable energy, while prioritizing safety for the community and workers. Exelon Corporation is the largest nuclear operator in the United States. Exelon used AVEVA’s PI System to transform its diagnostic process, so engineers and operators have a shared set of data to use for crucial decisions. Exelon’s staff can now focus on analysis and decision-making while AVEVA’s PI System automatically collects data.
“Time is of the essence. The sooner you find out there is a problem, the sooner you can do something about it.”
– Mohammed Yousef, Process Control Engineer, STM
- 10% reduction in engineer workload, reduced data latency, better analysis capabilities.
- Safety is a top priority, along with competitive pricing pressures and the need to collect data faster.
- The PI System
- 20% maintenance reduction from switching to condition-based maintenance, less time spent on data collection created more time for analysis.
