AES in Northern Ireland has chosen Infotechnics’ Opralog solution for preparing and reporting shift activities in the plants.

The AES Ballylumford Power Station has a generating capacity of 1246 MW it is the largest power station on the island of Ireland. The AES Kilroot Power Station has a generating capacity of 520 MW from dual coal and oil fuelled generators, plus 84 MW from additional gas turbines.

Opralog has been selected to provide a standard shift logging solution for capturing and reporting key plant events.  It will replace paper based and manual systems which will reduce the workload on the operator, improve communication across the plant and reduce risk.

Jon Howard, Business Development Director at Infotechnics said, “We’re really pleased to add AES to our growing customer base in Ireland.  Opralog is used across the power generation industry and will provide AES with real time reporting that is available 24/7.  This will allow the plant to recognize potential risks and hazards earlier and and make more informed decisions.  We look forward to working together.”
