Power Generation and Utilities

Power generation and utilities are a major focus for our consulting practice. Gateway has been frequently engaged to develop information management strategies to improve safety and reliability in this highly regulated sector. Gateway’s team of information technology professionals are highly qualified to implement an electronic document management (EDM) solution for the applications described below.

Regulatory Compliance and security are two of the top information management issues. Power generation plants and utilities are required to comply with a wide range of  regulatory requirements that put special information management demands on this sector. Also the need to manage corporate content in a secure IT environment is a major driver for EDM technology. Gateway has extensive experience in designing and implementing electronic document management solutions in this sector.

Capital Projects are crucial for maintaining and expanding plant productivity. There are substantial benefits to be gained by leveraging Electronic Document Management technology through all phases of a capital project. Gateway has extensive expertise in the development of  solutions that facilitate data exchange between contractor and the plant owner-operator.  We also provide lifecycle solutions to transition the construction and as-built data to production

Drawings & P&ID’s are utilized in support of plant operations, maintenance and capital projects. Managing drawing numbers, revisions and version control can be particularly daunting in this sector due to the reliance on outside contractors and the long retention times for this technical content. Gateway has extensive experience in all aspects of drawing capture, rendition processing and data migration into EDM systems. We excel in all aspects of information and business modeling required to navigate the relationships between a facility’s assets and the supporting technical content.
