By implementing M.A.C Solutions’ ProcessVue alarm management and printer replacement software at Drax Power Station, Selby, North Yorkshire, engineers at Drax Power Limited (“Drax”) now have the ability to identify alarm trends more easily and quickly and to analyse the causes of plant upsets, should any occur, including the sequence of events (SOEs) leading up to a loss of production.
George Eccleston, Lead Control and Instrumentation Engineer at Drax states: “Introducing ProcessVue to the power station has been a gradual process over the last year or so. We have 11 SCADA systems across site. Six of these SCADA systems look after the six steam turbine generators, two are associated with water treatment and common site services, and the remaining three are within our materials handling processes. All of the SCADA systems provide plant operators with real time alarm handling capability. M.A.C Solutions has supported us every step of the way, adapting and tuning ProcessVue to exactly meet our bespoke requirements.”
