Alaska Hydropower Agency working with MAPCON

SEAPA (Southeast Alaska Power Agency) manages two hydropower utilities supplying electricity to three cities in SE Alaska. The people of Wrangell, Petersburg and Ketchikan are able to flip a switch and electricity is provided. The operators, mechanics and electricians maintaining the power source equipment and facilities are helped by their daily use of MAPCON Maintenance Software. They deserve World Class recognition and with a World Class CMMS like MAPCON Maintenance Management Software to help them in their maintenance and engineering needs, it's a win-win!

Scheduling Maintenance with MAPCON Preventive Maintenance module helps to pre-empt any break-downs and works to keep things running smoothly. Tracking maintenance from Towers to Turbines and from Panels to Penstocks; all maintained at fixed intervals with PM work orders, MAPCON helps track hours spent and repair history. This assists in keeping repair and replacement costs down. This optimum way of running MAPCON for maintenance of equipment and facilities should roll back to the hydropower agency. Keeping consumer costs for electricity as low as possible can in a way be attributed to proper maintenance of the equipment.

These long time users of MAPCON CMMS Software are in the Hydropower industry. As utilities, they are subject to regulations. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is one example. MAPCON Maintenance Software can and does provide reports and lists tracking any data that these regulatory agencies need. Another example of MAPCON being more than useful as a CMMS database! We at MAPCON are quite happy to provide the Maintenance Management Software that helps this group continue at their high level of operation. Welcome SEAPA to the MAPCON Family!
