Switzerland: The Ernen hydroelectric power plant optimises its investment program thanks to a new Oxand algorithm
A project carried out at the Ernen power plant, in partnership with HYDRO Exploitation SA, operator of the site on behalf of Rhowag AG, has resulted in Oxand complementing its Simeo™ software platform with a new module. The objective: to optimise investment programs for hydroelectric installations.
The new module enables the user to choose, among several maintenance scenarios, the one offering the best cost and production availability performance.
Therefore providing an objective and transparent overview of the different choices, Oxand equips the installation manager with a precious decision support tool. The module has recently been deployed in several hydroelectric installations in Switzerland.
