Keeping electricity affordable in Arizona
Arizona Public Service (APS) provides the state’s inhabitants with essential utilities. Today, they’re responsible for delivering reliable electricity to the 2.7 million Arizonians – a vital service in a region known for its long, hot summers.
With half of its 6,000-strong workforce approaching retirement, the team knew training new operators had to be a key part of its operational excellence strategy. But with teammates spread far and wide across the state, they needed a way to deliver world-class training remotely.
We partnered with APS to introduce cloud-based training using AVEVA™ Operator Training Simulator. Using generic power plant models, the team could learn processes and procedures across plants, regardless of how they were configured.
