EnerSys Corporation Announces SCADA Control Room Design Partnership with User Center Design Services
Russel Treat, President of EnerSys said: “Our partnership with UCDS enhances our ability to offer state-of-the-art, turn-key solutions for SCADA and the control room. In particular, we welcome the opportunity to implement the High Impact HMI approach developed by UCDS. We fully anticipate that the changes required of oil and gas operators by the new Control Room Management regulations create an opportunity for operators to implement best practices in control room design focusing on operational excellence.”
A combination of new and rapidly evolving standards and regulatory requirements is calling for the control room to examine existing operations and to develop plans to bring their people, processes and systems current. By implementing both control room design and best practices in workspaces and management systems using existing EnerSys SCADA platforms, gas control centers will achieve more effective controller operations and improved overall operational integrity.
Ian Nimmo, President of UCDS, said, “Our mission is to impact all aspects of plant operations by implementing best practice solutions for reducing the frequency and severity of abnormal situations and instituting efficient and effective work processes. We accomplish this by evaluating current plant conditions, making realistic and achievable recommendations for improvement, and assisting in implementation of the recommendations.”
