Rolls-Royce and Bruce Power have entered into an agreement to implement Rolls-Royce’s innovative digital analytics tools, as part of Bruce Power’s Life-Extension Program. As part of the contract, Rolls-Royce will implement its proven digital technology designed to optimise the operational lifetime of nuclear power plants, known as T-104. The digital technology utilises worldwide nuclear operating data to provide best-in-class asset management services to the Bruce Power fleet. This enables Rolls-Royce to convert that intelligence into valuable insights to help Bruce Power improve the operational efficiency of its plants.
Rolls-Royce will have employees embedded at Bruce Power so that the two organisations can work closely together to use Rolls-Royce’s powerful demand driven forecasting data to improve equipment reliability, reduce inventories and maintenance and materials costs, while improving operational and supply chain practices. The end result is expected to be dramatic operating cost reductions as well as major reductions in capital tied up in parts inventories.
