In order to improve the safety and reduce plant shut down time for
scheduled maintenance works, Aceralia is developing and testing on
its HSM at Aviles an application that ensures that the selected equipment
is correctly and safely powered down. This application also serves
updated information regarding the current status of maintenance
works and equipment. Finally, it performs automatic analysis of the
events happened during the shut down, deviations with respect to
the scheduling and other statistical analyses.
