Increasing the effectiveness of diagnostic and control systems

Situation

  • A leading Russian thermal and heat energy network company wanted to assess the processes in its operational units to identify ways to improve efficiency in analyzing and controlling its heating networks

Goal

  • To optimize the diagnostics systems within the heating systems, including the renewal of equipment and changes to operational processes
  • To develop a system of control to assess sections of the heating network along with systems to ensure decisions about the modernization and repair of critical areas are taken
  • To develop and introduce all of the needed regulations for the optimized processes

Our approach

The project was divided into 4 stages, in which the consultants team and pilot operating units’ working group implemented the following steps:

  • Streamlined the processes and selected equipment alternatives
  • Performed tests on the new, improved processes in chosen subsidiaries on selected equipment
  • Developed regulations for the processes and taught them to diagnostic personnel in the pilot units
  • Introduced the streamlined processes into the pilot units and renewed the investment programme on relaying heating networks as a result

Results

  • Was developed and implemented a comprehensive system for diagnosis, analysis and evaluation of thermal networks
  • Was adjusted the investment program on the basis of the introduced system by more than 1/3 by including more priority sites that required new heating networks and excluding those in fine working condition
