Power Generation

As the world economy improves, growth is fuelling an unprecedented demand for energy. This demand, in turn, places pressure on traditional producers who are witnessing a decline in their ability to deliver cheap, safe and reliable energy. Oil & Gas production is moving to unpredictable geographies. Newer sources of energy are being added to the mix and technological changes like Smart Grids have arrived. Power generation is being impacted by EHS regulations, the need for supply security, rising fuel costs and trading integration. Amid this, consumer expectations are evolving, resulting in extreme changes in energy generation.

How Wipro Helps

Wipro understands that the future of generation depends on efficiency improvements and constant innovation to cope up with ageing plants, availability, energy demands and environmental compliance.

  • Focusing on integration of data and processes among process control and enterprise domains to drive standardization, optimization and reliability across plants
  • Offering strong capabilities in process automation, engineering and deep experience in implementing global transformational projects

Solutions and Capabilities:

EAM Template: Best practice processes for generation work and asset management, collated together, represented from L1 to L4 level. The solution reduces the requirements and blueprinting time by half, resulting in significant effort and cost savings. The processes are product agnostic and allow generation-specific implementations not directly available from packages.

Plant Dashboard: Visibility of a problem is the first step in rectification. While ordinary BI solutions present data, the dashboard identifies problem areas. The solution provides multi-layer visibility to overall plant health and trends through industry standard KPIs, as well as allows comparison across plants. The KPIs are in operations, maintenance, EH&S, supply chain, financials and fuel management.

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM): A process approach to carry out RCM for a generation plant. The solution provides guided steps and templates to carry out the analysis. A well-implemented RCM can reduce the maintenance cost by more than 30% and improve reliability by several percentage points.

Fuel Management: The solution provides a process template to cover all functionalities in the fuel management value chain by integrating fuel operations with ERP functions, improving optimization and driving cost reductions.

Product evaluation, recommendation and implementation: For a range of areas including SCADA, Historian, Asset Management, Document Management and Field Automation.
