Unipro PJSC implements an electronic operating log information system based on the SK-11* platform. Power engineers are digitizing maintaining, archiving, storing, and analyzing operational documentation at the workplaces of operating personnel. The administrative and technical order logs will also be digitized.
The pilot plants were Yaivinskaya and Shaturskaya GRES, where the electronic logging system was put into operation as early as August 17, 2020. And on July 1, 2022, the system also became operational at Surgutskaya GRES-2, Berezovskaya GRES, and Smolenskaya GRES.
The electronic operational log will reduce the likelihood of human errors in keeping operational documentation, as well as reduce the time for data entry, document preparation, their review and follow-up actions.
Another goal of the project is to implement the digital multilevel archiving and backup of data allowing to quickly view records made in significantly earlier periods.
According to Vadim Moskvin, head of the Industrial Safety and Technical Audit Department at Unipro PJSC, the environmental aspects of the project are no less important: the electronic operational log system will reduce the number of purchased paper logbooks. "By moving away from paper, from 2017 to 2021, the company's operational functions alone reduced the number of paper journals from 1,300 to 750. In the future, the project will save us from buying about 700 more paper logs a year," said Vadim.
* SK-11 is the general name of the information and technical platform with a variable set of applications for creating automated systems for operational dispatch, process and situational control of electric power facilities.
