How does it work?

Tecnatom Monitoring Center aims to support energy plants to optimize operation and maintenance. The data and the TecOS Suite solutions provide support for our monitoring and diagnosis services

Services provided by the Monitoring Center

Inside the CMT

The CMT team uses different profiles from analysts and experts who work collaboratively with plants. The center's staff is supported by their knowledge on the technologies, processes, and tools to be able to make the most of the available data. Our relationship with our clients is based on transparency. We design communication processes based upon our clients’ specific needs.
In addition, CMT includes simulators that Tecnatom has developed and that allow to test different scenarios and give recommendations to our clients

The information processed in the CMT is shown through smart interfaces that, thanks to pattern recognition and the integration of information, allow to identify anomalies at a glance.
The use of smart icons, developed by Tecnatom, help to present information in a comprehensive, intuitive way,reducing the cognitive load on the user and favoring situational awareness.
Tecnatom's experience in human factor engineering has given rise to a design aimed at facilitating the work of analysts

The architecture for acquisition, transport, and storage is flexible and adaptable to the client's needs. CMT software has a wide variety of connectors to transmit and storage plant data in order to be able to take advantage of the data once it has been processed.

Performance and component monitoring both require data sources and communications solutions. Storage takes place in a data management system. The best solution for deployment will be sought to meet the client's needs

The communication process with plant staff is tailored to the needs of each client. Staff should be available for weekly and monthly follow-up, as well as being able to tend to alerts set off by monitoring system incidents.

The data for TecOS solutions is stored in a database to ensure its integrity and it is sent securely via SSL/TLS encryption. Optionally, the TecOS platform can also perform data masking, if required.
