Infineum

The AVEVA Mobile Operator Rounds solution at Infineum has allowed the operational procedures for visual inspections of equipment to be optimised and standardised, enabling the plant to achieve an availability factor of over 90%.

Goals

  • Increase plant’s availability by anticipating any potentially damaging situations
  • Optimize operators’ efficiency and reliability during inspection activity
  • Limit production downtimes to scheduled maintenance only

Challenges

  • The proximity of the plants to inhabited areas makes it essential for the sites to be safe and reliable at all times
  • Detection of critical indicators, e.g. vibrations or the presence of foreign particles, which automatic instruments do not usually detect effectively
  • Maximize the value of the time and experience of the field operators

Results

  • AVEVA solution has enabled the plant to achieve an availability factor of over 90%
  • The system has allowed the operational procedures for visual inspections of equipment to be optimized and standardized, thanks to the removal of paper reports and the intuitive nature of the handheld devices
  • AVEVA Mobile Operator Rounds features now allow operators to identify potential problems which were previously neglected, thus avoiding the need for any emergency intervention

"Mobile Operator Rounds has made a major contribution to reaching a plant availability factor above 90%, since it has integrated perfectly with the other innovations added to our equipment."

– Mauro Tassistro, Applications Team Leader
