Scottish Power has selected PAS to provide its comprehensive alarm management and control performance software and services for twelve sites comprising gas-fired, coal-fired, and hydro-electric power generation stations.

Under the contract, PAS engineers will assess the performance of alarm management systems and control loops, and develop improvement plans for each individual plant. PAS says it will also install its PlantState Suite software at all sites. This will provide comprehensive alarm management and control performance functionality, to facilitate the assessment and improve performance of their systems. Upon completion of the project, Scottish Power will continue to utilize PlantState Suite to monitor and sustain the improvements.

" Scottish Power selected the PAS alarm management and control loop performance solutions after an exhaustive assessment of available technologies in the market," said Suzanne Mackay, Scottish Power project manager. "We believe that these technologies will best help us avoid abnormal operating situations, significantly improve the situation awareness of our plant operators, and provide better control of our plants."
