We expect IBM Watson services integrated with Maximo to generate a wealth of insights about predictive maintenance and the root causes of equipment failure. We’re confident they will optimize our production of energy and medical isotopes.

Business Challenge

Capturing and analyzing data is foundational to understanding the health and performance of nuclear power operational assets and, ultimately, to extending their life by predicting when they require maintenance. Unfortunately, Bruce Power’s heritage system for enterprise asset management (EAM) lacked robust data-management capabilities.

Transformation

Bruce Power engaged IBM Global Business Services to deploy the IBM Maximo for Nuclear Power EAM platform. Replacing an obsolete EAM system, the tool helps plant managers understand how assets perform in real time and manage them from any location. They also benefit from built-in reports and analytics that generate operational insights and document regulatory compliance. As a result of these capabilities, Bruce Power can generate nuclear power more reliably, efficiently and safely.
