Icon Water is partnering with ARMS Reliability to put best practice digital Asset Strategy Management in place across its more than $2.4 billion AUD in water and sewerage assets.
Icon Water is the Australian Capital Territory’s supplier of essential water and wastewater services. They own and operate assets comprising the ACT’s network of dams, water treatment plants, sewage treatment plants, reservoirs, water and sewage pumping stations, mains and other related infrastructure.
In line with their core company value of excellence, Icon Water set out to boost their Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) toolkit and launched an RCM improvement initiative.
Following the evolution of the business to Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management, it was clear there was an opportunity to ensure that optimized maintenance strategies existed for all assets – not just critical assets. It was an ideal time to transition from Excel to a digital Asset Strategy Management solution.
“We’re always focused on providing quality and reliable services to our customers and community," said Andrew Behn, Team Leader Maintenance Engineering & Delivery Planning at Icon Water.
“As our asset base grows and our assets age, it is even more important for our maintenance strategies to be well planned and executed. By working with ARMS Reliability we are able to leverage industry best practice tools so we can deploy the best possible solutions for our entire asset base in the most efficient manner.”
“ARMS Reliability have been a great partner - they have worked closely with us to truly understand our challenges, and continue to provide considerable depth of knowledge and support throughout the process.”
Using OnePM, Icon Water will be able to quickly build, deploy, and update maintenance strategies for one asset and instantly make that change across all similar assets.
In addition to OnePM, Icon Water will use Isograph’s Availability Workbench™ to ensure strategies can be tailored to suit future budgetary constraints based on cost and risk, and maintenance strategy effectiveness can be demonstrated using data and analytics.
“We’re looking forward to supporting Icon Water during the initial phase of building optimal strategies for their asset base," said Amir Datoo, Technical Manager for ARMS Reliability.
“The first steps of implementation are an extremely important part of the process and we will make sure Icon Water is set up to deliver the ideal balance of cost and risk as well as improved asset performance.”
The implementation of OnePM kicked off with a three-day workshop involving ARMS Reliability and Icon Water’s Maintenance and IT teams. Phase two includes installation and configuration, as well as the creation of 418 equipment strategies for over 700,000 assets, expected to be completed by the end of November.
