LONDON, February 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Ventyx(R), the world's largest private software, data and advisory services provider to the energy and utility industry, today announced that Romanian nuclear operator CNE (http://www.cne.ro/) Cernavoda, in conjunction with its business partner SIVECO (http://www.siveco.ro/web/?page=11language=2) Romania, has successfully implemented the Ventyx Asset Suite(TM) (http://www.ventyx.com/asset-suite/overview.asp) enterprise asset management (EAM) software solution to manage maintenance and safety operations for its nuclear plants at Cernavoda, and has made a new four-year commitment to extend the deployment to the entire nuclear operation.
CNE and SIVECO deployed Asset Suite across CNE's two currently operational plants, Units 1 and 2, supporting a total of 600 users. As part of the new agreement, CNE has committed to extend the solution to 1,000 users and deploy additional Asset Suite modules, including Engineering Change, Personnel Qualifications, Project Management and Total Exposure. CNE uses also the Ventyx Curator document management system in order to manage engineering design documents.
CNE chose Ventyx and its business partner SIVECO for this project because we wanted to work with a company that understands nuclear plant operations process and needs, and has successfully delivered solutions around the world, said Ionel Bucur, CNE Cernavoda Site Director. The success of this implementation shows that our choice of Ventyx was well-founded. CNE places high value on the quality and knowledge of the professional services teams from both Ventyx and SIVECO, as well as the strength of our partnership. Both will play a vital role as we work together to maintain and improve the safety and efficiency of the Cernavoda site.
By implementing Asset Suite, CNE has deployed the industry-leading EAM solution for nuclear power generation, energy delivery and other asset-intensive organizations. Hundreds of clients around the world use Ventyx asset and plant operations management software, including 95 percent of the top 50 Fortune 100 energy companies, nine of the top 10 European power generators and four of the top five European utilities.
Asset Suite will provide CNE's nuclear operators with deep asset management for their diverse equipment and infrastructure, allowing them to manage information such as equipment model, serial number, vendor, date purchased, spare parts, services performed, recalls and more for the entire site with a single system. In addition, Asset Suite delivers a personal user interface that includes role and rule-based content and workflow-based navigation and is configurable for the individual user. As a result, CNE can improve their asset performance, safety and financial results by reducing plant operational costs, improving workforce effectiveness, meeting regulatory and safety requirements and streamlining the supply chain, among other benefits.
We are delighted to be able to count CNE amongst our extensive nuclear customer base and to partner with leading IT partner SIVECO on such an important project, further demonstrating our commitment and leadership in the Central and Eastern European energy generation market, said Ventyx VP Richard Jones. The success at Cernavoda is truly the result of a team effort. Ventyx has had a full-time team of nuclear specialists from our Professional Services Organization onsite in Romania working closely with both the customer and partner implementation team from the onset. And, we are proud that CNE has chosen to continue our partnership and leverage our industry-leading work and asset management solution as they are going to operate also Units 3 and 4.
