The Energy from Waste industry provides a forward-thinking solution to the world’s need for renewable fuel. The market size was $32.15 billion only two years ago, according to Fortune Business Insights , and with over 1700 thermal waste to energy plants across the world – along with continued expansion of energy from waste plants in China – this number is set to increase.
Energy from Waste organisations normally have complex equipment and processes operating in quite challenging environments. Therefore, enterprise asset management is important to maximise asset uptime and keep maintenance costs low. Alongside this, there are regulatory, safety and emission requirements which the sites must uphold.
Maximo Application Suite (MAS) Manage technology takes waste to energy companies one step closer to achieving these objectives.
Achieve Enterprise Asset Management ‘Best Practice’
Energy from Waste businesses must aim to achieve best practice through their Enterprise Asset Management system. When your company has better understanding of your planning and reactive maintenance, it enables greater structure about where you need to focus your maintenance efforts.
Excellent enterprise asset management also enables your business to:
- Increase productivity of the plant
- Improve asset lifecycles and asset life
- Optimise stock and spares management
- Access the right assets at the right time, with the right materials and the right equipment
Enterprise asset management helps you to ensure equipment is working optimally, which ensures that you stay within all statutory/regulatory requirements, and thus making it less likely that you will be liable for fines or penalties.
