Suncor Energy, Inc. has selected Asset Performance Technologies, Inc. (APT) and its partners, Meridium, Inc. and the Marathon Consulting Group, for its RCM project at Suncor's upgrading facilities in Ft. McMurray AB, Canada. APT will use its PRO-M software and methodology to expedite the RCM facilitation and analysis work, resulting in optimized PM recommendations based on the highest value PM activities for all equipment in scope. Using Meridium's RCMO software, Marathon personnel will implement the RCM recommendations into Suncor's SAP data system.
According to David Worledge, CEO of APT, "We are very pleased to be working with the leading oil sands recovery company. Working with Suncor's operations, maintenance, and reliability staff, we can very quickly translate our experience in the power industry into relevant equipment models for the refining industry. Using PRO-M and our efficient methodology, APT will save Suncor time and money during the RCM analysis, increasing uptime and reducing annual maintenance costs. Our approach makes use of Suncor's personnel resources in a very flexible manner - a new development replacing the traditional team-based approach that is so difficult to sustain."
