NiSoft continue to expand their footprint in the United States
Published August 2011
In May 2011 NiSoft started an eclipse implementation project with Tampa Electric at its Big Bend power station, Tampa Bay, Florida. Tampa Electric joins Orlando Utilities Commission and Gainesville Regional Utilities as Florida based power generation providers using eclipse to manage their HSSE document management processes.
Big Bend Power Station, located on almost 1,500 acres, has four coal-fired units with a combined output of more than 1,700 megawatts. The station began service in 1970, with additional units being added in 1973, 1976 and 1985. In order to provide for customers during periods of peak demand, and to support Tampa Electric's commitment to reliable power, a natural gas and fuel oil-fired peaking unit was installed at the plant in 2009. NiSoft are confident that the installation of eclipse will further enhance Tampa Electric's reputation as a reliable and efficient power generation facility.
Andy Clark, Senior Vice President of Sales Americas was delighted with the successful eclipse implementation at Big Bend. He commented that NiSoft are continuing to expand their footprint in the United States, with a growing trend towards lock out management. "NiSoft have grown out of the requirement to implement reliable permit and lock out tag out systems in process intensive industries. We see more and more in the US, a requirement for the robust management of lock out, as well as tag out systems".back
