We are an ISO 9001 registered company, focused on providing services and solutions to industry. We specialise in the performance monitoring of equipment and processes through analysis and visualisation of real-time data, and in the management of alarm data.
The company consists of both engineers and computer scientists forming a team of very capable and skilled professionals who provide innovative and tailored solutions to their global clients. It strives for the following principles:
Maintaining high quality standards is vital for any business, especially Intelligent Plant. It helps to maintain customer satisfaction and loyalty and reduces the time and cost for the maintenance of products. The company puts a lot of emphasis on quality and is proud to hold an ISO9001 certificate from the International Organization for Standardization. A customer would always expect a quality product and failing to meet this expectation results in losing the customers loyalty. Quality products help establish solid business relations with partners and have a huge contribution to long-term revenue and profitability. It also nurtures existing client relations and helps maintain good reputation on the market. This is getting very important as social media’s influence keeps growing and the exchange of information between people is easier and faster than ever.
Honest business practices build foundations of trust with colleagues, competitors, staff, clients and all other stakeholders. When negotiating with a client the company would rather turn down a potential contract than give false promises. It also has the practice of holding back a new product until satisfied with it, before launching it on the market, even if that means losing some of the profit. Honesty is also deeply reflected in the relationship between the company and its employees. Each and every person is treated like a family member. Personal and domestic problems are not being ignored and are being addressed with fairness and understanding.
It represents the soundness and honesty with which the company conducts its relationships with all partners it interacts with. It helps to establish a feeling of trust and makes stakeholders more open with each other. Within the team this openness encourages people to express their views and opinions more freely. The independence created this way results in better creativity and makes the employees feel like they have contributed something special. Furthermore it makes them proud of their work and makes them feel closely connected to the business. This is one of the most important principles for a successful business.
In Intelligent Plant simplicity is seen as something that has been stripped from all the nonessentials. In other words it is something that has been relieved of all unnecessary complexity. As a result it allows the focus to fall on the most important tasks only. It also impossible to have simplicity without honesty as dishonesty sprouts complexity.
Digitalisation is transforming the way that offshore wind farms are operated and maintained. Intelligent Plant’s innovative new technology - an app to streamline communication and data sharing between onshore and offshore technicians – could have a big impact on reducing risk and cost. Accessing real-world test facilities can often be a barrier to innovative companies developing new technologies but our 7MW Levenmouth Demonstration Turbine provides the ideal environment for Intelligent Plant to test, demonstrate and validate their technology in a real-world environment and help to accelerate its route to market.
