Asset Guardian Solutions Ltd (AGSL), which specialises in protecting companies’ process critical software assets, announced that it has been awarded a contract by EDF Energy for work at its Torness Power Station in East Lothian, Scotland.
The contract requires AGSL to supply EDF Energy with its Asset Guardian software toolset for Torness. Torness Power Station is using it to control its hardware assets (PCB life cycle). It also provides improved management of the critical software assets that it uses to operate the Power Station.
“We found it difficult to find a company capable of meeting our requirements due to the technically challenging nature of this project,” said John Duguid, Group Head – Protection & Electrical for Torness. “However, AGSL proved that it has the technical capabilities to develop an exact fit for us. We’re looking forward to working with the Asset Guardian team, and receiving its support in helping us to maintain our consistently high standards when it comes to managing the integrity of our assets.”
Protecting process critical software assets for the energy industry
The contract award from EDF Energy is one of several recent contract awards to AGSL from companies operating in the international energy industry. Recently, operator Woodside Energy Ltd. of Australia awarded AGSL a contract to provide a Programmable Systems Management tool set to provide enhanced management of its critical software assets. The company also provides Asset Guardian to operators BP, Marathon Oil UK and EON.
“We are delighted to be extending our relationship with EDF Energy to help them address the challenging nature of this project,” said Sam Mackay, Chief Executive of AGSL. “The growing demands of regulators mean that industrial operators must be increasingly diligent when it comes to ensuring the safety, reliability and quality of their assets. AGSL helps these companies to achieve those objectives with a customisable solution that fits their specific requirements.”
