Power plant test readiness

PROBLEM

Power plant engineers require perfectly calibrated turbines to ensure tests produce valid results. Currently, calibration requires two engineers - one to relay readings from the control room and one to perform the calibration on the unit. This duplication results in an inefficient use of resources and increased project costs.

SOLUTION

We created a native iPad application that streams data from the control room monitoring system to present a live feed of turbine data to the on-unit test engineer. By transferring data through a mobile device, we can eliminate the second engineer and streamline the testing process.
