Copperleaf C55 Goes Live at Hydro OttawaBy Copperleaf
Vancouver, BC, February 17, 2015—Copperleaf’s C55 Asset Investment Planning & Management (AIPM) solution is now live at Hydro Ottawa, the third-largest municipally-owned electrical utility in Ontario, Canada.
“I’m extremely pleased to say that the project was completed on time and on budget, and that we now have a robust process in place to create, manage, and optimize all of our asset investments across the distribution system,” said Jim Pegg, Manager of Asset Planning at Hydro Ottawa. “With Copperleaf C55, we now have much better visibility into the sustainment needs of our asset base over the long-term and can clearly demonstrate that our investment plans are aligned with our priorities as a company.”
Copperleaf’s Project Manager Pat Lord led the implementation. “Hydro Ottawa is our first customer to deploy the full suite of C55 functionality at once, which really points to their desire to implement a best practice AIPM methodology,” noted Lord. “They’ve taken an innovative approach to modeling different investment levels for populations of distribution assets—using C55’s Program Analytics module to compare different risks, benefits and cost trade-offs, and determine the optimal levels of investment for these assets.”
The C55 implementation was part of a larger initiative led by Ottawa-based Montera Corporation.
“Copperleaf’s C55 solution was an ideal fit to help Hydro Ottawa improve their asset investment decision making and planning processes,” said Jim Bursey, Managing Partner of Montera. “The success of the project is really due to the professionalism, drive and knowledge of everyone that has been involved.”
