Prioritizing Power: How Alectra Used the PI System to Achieve Reliability-Centered Maintenance
Serving 15 communities and one million customers, Alectra generates 4750 MW of power during peak demand. Scheduled maintenance couldn't prevent 89% of failures, which were a result of premature failures, rather than aging assets. To combat this, the team embarked on a digital transformation with the PI System and created a new Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM3) strategy to maintain critical assets, prioritize repairs, and decrease asset failure that could lead to outages. Already, they have identified and repaired a major transformer issue that would have been an estimated $3 million to replace if it had been run to failure.
