SaskPower Selects Alstom Grid’s UISOL for Asset Management Solution

04/02/2014

Alstom is pleased to announce that its consulting and systems integration services group, UISOL, has been selected to provide an asset management optimization solution through a competitive procurement by SaskPower (electric utility serving the province of Saskatchewan). 

UISOL will provide the technical and business services to implement the AIP solution within SaskPower’s IT environment (including project management oversight, installation of the software, and providing training for SaskPower personnel). The Group has partnered with Clevest who is providing its industry-leading Asset Investment Planning (AIP) solution. This software will be configured to handle power production infrastructure optimization with future expansion into transmission and distribution.

“Utility senior executives, management and engineers are seeking enterprise solutions for managing their large asset base. The AIP solution provides utility personnel with the tools and means to optimize electrical Grid, operations and maintenance spending, to prioritize decision-making and to manage risk while accounting for asset condition and performance over time. It fits nicely into Alstom Grid’s overall strategy to cover the Asset Management domain from electrical equipment expertise up to enterprise integration know-how,” said Terry Nielsen, who leads UISOL’s systems integration practice.

“Clevest’s mobile solutions are already being used at SaskPower to help with its advanced metering infrastructure implementation. We are very excited to capitalise on this success with our AIP solution, which is currently being used to identify, justify, and optimize capital portfolios at major energy companies in Canada and the U.S.,” said Clevest CEO Thomas Ligocki.
