CODA offers a digital solution to many of the issues faced by utilities companies including limiting the risks of power or asset failures, reducing energy consumption and evidencing the effectiveness of ESG strategies.
Thousands of unmanned utility sites exist around the UK and each one may house several critical assets. To maintain essential utility services, it is crucial that these machines operate with 100% uptime and CODA enables site managers to remotely monitor sub-second data from multiple sites in a variety of locations. The CODA platform generates a digital twin of each site and its assets to deliver an in-depth visualisation of the operations, both in real-time and historically, so that site managers can deliver proactive maintenance if any deviations occur. This preventative approach to maintenance not only keeps assets working efficiently, but it can help to avoid disruptive downtime, which can incur fines and result in a poor experience for the end-user.
The granular data that CODA delivers can also help managers identify energy consumption patterns to develop a complete picture of the site’s energy efficiency. It is then possible to make strategic changes in order to optimise the operational performance of unmanned sites while reducing the overall energy consumption and therefore the costs associated with running the location.
CODA enables users to create a site-specific document repository which includes CODA O&M manuals as well as documentation relating to other assets, such as risk assessments. The platform’s digital twin dashboard even makes it possible to locate these documents alongside the asset they relate to. This means facilities managers can access any required documents by simply clicking on the relevant asset.
In addition to reducing the financial cost of running a site, improving its energy efficiency can help to reduce its carbon emissions and overall environmental impact. These reductions can be highlighted in CODA’s detailed reporting in order to showcase the company’s sustainability commitment and promote the business’s positive progress towards the NetZero targets. These reports can then be used to evidence the site’s compliance with health and safety legislation and demonstrate the effectiveness of their ESG strategy to customers and stakeholders.
