As part of their larger modernization project, BWP transitioned from a paper logging method to an electronic logging method. Variable Log provided digital Logbooks that maintain the ease of understanding and readability of paper logging, while providing an easy method of inputting data, along with a powerful search tool. BWP was impressed by the ability to customize the log templates and the reduction of time spent logging for operations. After a short transition period, BWP is now using Variable Log full-time, and the System Operators are pleased with the electronic logbook software.
“Everyone really likes the program,” said Lee Recchia, Principal Power System Operator, BWP Energy Control Center. “[Even when an issue has come up, the operators] find out that the program already covered their concerns the more they learned to use it.” PMCT, LLC provided software setup, template design, and training to BWP as part of the deployment.
