SAN LEANDRO, California – (October 18, 2011) – OSIsoft, LLC (www.osisoft.com
), provider of the PI System and the leader in real-time data and events infrastructure solutions, today announced they will offer combined solutions with Power Analytics Corporation to improve the reliability and energy efficiency of United States military facilities while reducing cost of mission-critical electrical power infrastructure in order to meet “Net Zero” and 2020 energy efficiency and reliability mandates.
This agreement will implement OSIsoft’s PI System® infrastructure for the management of real-time data and events in conjunction with Power Analytics’ Paladin® Live™ and Paladin® SmartGrid™ platforms to reduce U.S. military risk. OSIsoft and Power Analytics have previously collaborated on a range of advanced projects including financial and e-commerce data centers and the University of California, San Diego microgrid.
OSIsoft’s PI System® infrastructure will provide U.S. military facilities with insight into their operations with secure real-time data. Power Analytics’ Paladin® Live™ and Paladin® SmartGrid™ will provide real-time power network management and real-time power grid optimization. Both offerings are intended for high performance, real-time operating environments where power problems could have costly or catastrophic consequences. As a result of the technical collaboration between these two market leaders, industries where electrical power problems can occur, such as military facilities, data centers, power grids, petrochemical, and the oil and gas platforms – all markets in which both companies already have significant customer bases – will have the ability to dramatically increase both reliability and energy efficiency.
“We are very pleased to strengthen the ties between Paladin and the OSIsoft PI System in a manner that will deliver higher-capability real-time solutions to the broadest possible range of customers,” said Kevin Meagher, chief technology officer for Power Analytics Corporation. “Customers with mission-critical requirements will enjoy unprecedented insights into their electrical infrastructure and advance warnings about pending issues such as electrical power problems with sufficient time to avoid them.”
“We see this collaboration as yet another mission critical and strategic initiative where OSIsoft’s expertise in streaming data and events will make a significant contribution in developing better situational awareness, driving continuous improvement and building a more robust and sustainable approach to smart energy management for critical facilities,” said OSIsoft president Bernard Morneau.
