Summary

The CoE for Asset Management used Mercury, an analytic tool developed byour Strategic Consulting team, to provide a holistic view of the data centre assets in a pilot. This holistic view allows the Ferrovial services team to monitor asset performance in real time and identify potential failures.

The pilot focused on the data centres Air Handling Units and identified a number of benefits including: risk planning, strategic planning, improvement of inspection task lists and predictive maintenance.

The implementation of Mercury as a tool of high-level analysis provides added value to the data centre operations as follows:

Clear Understanding of asset behaviour

The data collected and presented by Mercury enables a much clearer understanding of the behaviour of individual assets. In particular, Mercury visualisations clearly show the possible degradation of an asset.

Improving inspection practice

Mercury visualisations allow NFF inspection reports to be questioned, with the goal of significantly reducing the frequency of NFF inspections, enabling proactive maintenance.

Improved understanding of risk

Mercury data drives the analysis of the risk of simultaneous fault conditions on redundant systems. This enables FS Management to take an informed view on maintenance levels and overall risk to site operations

Understanding of systematic differences in asset behaviours

Mercury has demonstrated differences in the overall management of all information relating large volumes of information and data, making more useful and fast active understanding for all technical operations team members
