Cory invests in EAM to support AD expansion plans
Already live at its main facility in Belvedere, London, with transfer stations and other sections of the business to follow, the platform created by business cloud software firm, Infor, is set to optimise the organisation, coordination, and intelligence surrounding maintenance planning and associated inventory.
Cory operates one of the UK’s largest energy from waste facilities on the banks of the River Thames and operates a river-based infrastructure that transports waste on a fleet of barges, turning approximately 750,000 tonnes of waste annually into baseload partly-renewable energy.
The company chose Infor EAM as part of a wider modernisation project design to support its expansion plans that will add a new energy recovery facility and an AD facility for food and green waste, solar power, and battery storage.
Infor EAM will facilitate ‘enhanced knowledge, intelligence, and decision-making’ across a growing asset register, expanding Cory’s capacity to manage waste as efficiently as possible. The cloud deployment utilises Amazon Web Services infrastructure to help reduce both the total cost of ownership and data security risk.
Lee Barker, head of IT at Cory, said: “As we gear up for major expansion, we identified a need to modernise, embrace the benefits afforded by the cloud, and ensure our predictive maintenance capabilities could facilitate intelligent insights, foster collaboration, and capitalise on the benefits of the IoT.
“Having used Infor EAM since 2012, we had absolute confidence in the capabilities of the platform and selected the latest cloud-based version of the solution to underpin our plans.
“The scale of capabilities in the system, ability to apply endless configurations to suit our specific assets and requirements, and in-depth management reports, stand to help us really embed our principles of efficiency and squeeze every last drop of potential from the assets we manage.”
