InfoFACILITY in the Olevano Lomellina biomass power plant
The collaboration is continuing between IB and MST, Manutenzioni & Servizi Tecnici Ltd, specialized in maintenance, energy & facility management, a subsidiary company of the Maire Tecnimont Group, an international leader in Engineering, active in various sectors.
After the completion of the construction of the Biolevano 18 MGWe power station, fueled by wood biomass, MST has been entrusted with the management and maintenance of the biomass power plant for the next 15 years.
The biomass power plant - one of the largest currently operating in Italy - is designed to produce 140 GWhe of renewable energy per year, enough to give power to approximately 50,000 households, and it will consume about 200,000 tons per year of poplar wood chips.
MST has installed InfoFACILITY® to centrally manage process control, to schedule maintenance, to record the technical data of all plant equipment with the maintenance history of each piece of equipment / system component and to integrate the software with the central PLC. Finally, through the "Performance Monitoring System", all the information necessary for the optimization of the management system is collected, such as: production efficiency, comparison with energy sales data, instant power production, etc.
