In recent years, a variety of external forces have significantly impacted the way power generation companies run their assets and meet business objectives. The industry is facing dramatic market dynamics resulting from changes in fuel prices, growing renewables, and changes in the regulatory environment. Managing power generation plants efficiently is getting tough, it involves challenges in it. Despite having a good ERP or software system in place, power operators still face significant barriers that make it difficult for them to take the right decision at the right time. A lack of asset level visibility — not knowing in advance when problems are about to occur, unplanned downtime, costly and often unnecessary routine preventive maintenance that introduces risk and decreases availability. And most importantly, critical information needed by maintenance technicians, operators, and managers get delayed that may impact reaching their deadlines.

Technology has changed almost everything, and a number of industries have been transformed by the wave of digital innovations. One area where we’re seeing a tremendous impact is Power Industry. As other industries are flourishing by using technological advancements, Power Industry also started selectively using technology to drive better economic outcomes from their power plants and existing software system.

As we discussed in our previous blog post, that technological advancement such as mobility, especially in oil and gas sector is not just the norm, but has become a necessity for success. In this blog, we will explore how Mobility helps Power Generation companies to increase asset performance, improve workers’ productivity and safety while reducing accidents/failures.
