The Asset Management Achievement Award




"Implementing PAS 55 in 26 power generation plants" 

This project involved implementation of a corporate management system based on PAS 55 across ICE’s plants. The approach taken ensured that frontline teams shaped the content and that cultural changes, such as knowledge sharing and a risk/reliability culture were embedded. The project has achieved significant benefits, totalling tens of millions of US dollars and has improved asset availability, reliability and reduced risks.
