Yokogawa Electric Corporation has launched its VigilantPlant Services, the first comprehensive package of automation service solutions that help manufacturers achieve safe, environmentally friendly, and profitable plant operations.
From design through project execution, operations, and maintenance, VigilantPlant Services provide manufacturers the support they need to achieve Operational Excellence over the entire plant lifecycle. It is in line with the Yokogawa VigilantPlant concept, said Yokogawa.
VigilantPlant is Yokogawa's automation concept for safe, reliable, and profitable plant operations and is ideal for plant production management in industries such as oil & gas, petrochemicals & chemicals, power, fertilizer, and mining, it added.
Yokogawa provides a wide variety of automation platform solutions that help companies protect health, safety, and environment (HSE), optimize production, improve asset utilization, and maximize plant uptime.
The service, the company said, is for those manufacturers who are looking to improve the safety, efficiency, and reliability of their operations while keeping quality high and costs low.
The VigilantPlant Services bring operational excellence by improving the effectiveness of automation platforms, the company said.
There are three basic types of VigilantPlant Services:
*Opportunity Identification Services- To identify new improvement possibilities and optimum solutions, Yokogawa provides free plant analysis, comparative effectiveness analysis, management seminar, master planning, and improvement leader development programs.
*Solution Implementation Services- To effectively implement identified solutions, Yokogawa provides Asset Management, Safety Management, Production Management, and Plant Lifecycle Management programs.
*Lifecycle Effectiveness Services- Following the implementation phase, Yokogawa continually maintains and re-evaluates these solutions for its customers to ensure that they remain effective throughout the plant lifecycle.
Yokogawa’s reorganization of its operational and consulting services business under the VigilantPlant Services name is based on the belief that manufacturers require a comprehensive package of services and solutions to support their continuous improvement activities throughout the plant lifecycle.
