TOPi® enables informed operational decisions
The main function of the TOPi® process information system is to monitor equipment performance and enhance power plant maintenance. At Fortum’s O&M sites, the tool is used to collect data from the defined DCS interface, store long history into the process database, and produce new information, such as calculations and reports, based on the data gathered. As an example, the system enables detailed process performance calculations with online and offline data, as well as emission and fuel consumption forecasts. The information is presented in a user-friendly way on process displays, as trend charts or reports, enabling an in-depth analysis and informed operational decision-making to improve the performance of the plant.
TOPi® is compatible with various automation systems, and the whole power plant personnel – from operators to management – can use the tool.
