AVEVA NET offers one of Canada’s largest oil sands producers’ operational efficiency and cost savings with third-party integration
Calgary, AB, Canada – 15 November 2012: AVEVA announced today that Suncor Energy has implemented AVEVA NET to support its data integrity management program for a new bitumen processing project in Alberta. The AVEVA NET software will provide validation of tag data and the identification of maintenance-significant tags and their corresponding key attributes to be uploaded into Suncor’s SAP Production and Maintenance system throughout the operation of the new facility. AVEVA NET will replace a costly manual process, achieving considerable efficiencies and cost savings.
“We were impressed with AVEVA NET’s rapid and robust data loading technology and its agile deployment capabilities,” said Jody Blotski, Master Data Manager, Project Services – Major Projects, Suncor. “Traditional data warehouses take a long time to set up with immediate benefits hard to realize. By contrast, AVEVA NET has proved to be both agile and pragmatic, which has allowed us to quickly gain value. The large amount of data we need to process can easily be handled by AVEVA NET, so the potential cost savings are enormous.”
“This implementation is a great example of AVEVA NET interfacing with third-party systems and offering tangible cost savings when pitched against competitive solutions,” added William Muldoon, Executive Vice President-North America, AVEVA. “Suncor is benefiting from an information management system specifically designed for assisting major projects to cross the data information chasm between engineering and operations. The combined strengths of the AVEVA team and our technology have enabled this significant win against our competitors. Suncor also provides a great reference for the extension of our AVEVA NET North American footprint in plant operations and maintenance.”
