Our digital tools for supporting modern operation and maintenance

Power plants are operated today with dedicated, highly automated DCS.  The complexity of the projects, volatility of energy production and the need to constantly optimise production call for advanced digital solutions to simplify daily power plant operations. Daily, monthly and annual reports are required to evaluate plant performance from both environmental and production perspectives, and digital tools are also needed for proper production planning, storage handling and optimisation of maintenance.

Over the years, Fortum has developed tools to support both our own fleet as well as international customers’ O&M sites.

Fortum's digital tools

  • TOPi is a browser-based tool for efficient power plant data management that helps monitor the performance of the equipment and enhance maintenance of the power plant. It retrieves data from the DCS, which is used for production optimisation, various calculations and reporting.
  • Fortum's Computerized Maintenance Management System based on IBM Maximo saves and maintains data on operational locations, equipment, inventory and suppliers. The data reported can be used for tracking faults, planning maintenance work and outages, managing the warehouse, acquisitions and inventories, and analysing maintenance costs.
  • The Apros simulator is used for training and recruiting purposes at O&M sites. The software is designed for dynamic simulation of power plant processes and energy networks automation and control, as well as power systems. The Apros model is created for the specific plant and used for operator training.
