SAN DIEGO, Calif. – October 18, 2011 – Two leading providers of real-time software solutions, Power Analytics Corporation (www.PowerAnalytics.com) and OSIsoft, LLC (www.osisoft.com), today announced they will offer a range of integrated software solutions to address the demanding, real-time requirements of mission-critical facilities. The first of these solutions will be for U.S. Government facilities to improve the reliability and energy efficiency of their mission-critical electrical power infrastructure, in order to meet “Net Zero” and 2020 protocols.
The announcement underscores the two companies’ intentions to actively implement their combined solutions based upon Power Analytics’ Paladin® Live™ and Paladin® SmartGrid™ platforms, as well OSIsoft’s PI System® infrastructure for the management of real-time data and events. Previously, the two companies collaborated successfully on a range of advanced customer projects involving some of the world’s largest financial and e-commerce data centers; off-shore oil and gas platforms; and one of the world’s most advanced next-generation Smart Grid / microgrids, located at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) where the use of the PI System infrastructure will provide the ability to manage, study, and augment control of the campus’ microgrid assets.
Both companies’ platforms are intended for high performance, real-time operating environments where power problems could have costly or catastrophic consequences. As a result of the technical collaboration between these two market leaders, industries where electrical power problems can wreak havoc, such as military facilities, data centers, power grids, petrochemical, and the oil and gas platforms – all markets in which both companies already have significant customer bases – will have the ability to dramatically increase both the reliability and energy efficiency, while reducing the total cost of ownership of their operations.
“We are very pleased to strengthen the ties between the Paladin and PI System infrastructure in a manner that will deliver higher-capability real-time solutions to the broadest possible range of customers,” said Kevin Meagher, chief technology officer for Power Analytics Corporation. “Customers with mission-critical requirements will enjoy unprecedented insights into what is happening in their electrical infrastructure, and advance warning about things that haven’t happened yet including power problems that there is still sufficient time to avoid.”
“We see this collaboration as yet another mission critical and strategic initiative where OSIsoft’s expertise in streaming data and events will make a significant contribution in developing better situational awareness, driving continuous improvement and building a more robust and sustainable approach to smart energy management for critical facilities”, said OSIsoft president Bernard Morneau.
