After implementing Bax’s solutions, the procedures became faster and faster and today we need just 3-4 screens to have under control all the most important dashboards and KPIs from our power plants. Thanks to this, today we have effective asset monitoring, which means faster identification and production losses minimization” – stated Orestis during his presentation.
