Asset Assessment and Management

Utilities are under growing pressure to demonstrate that they are proactively assessing and managing their assets. We assist Ontario utilities with their:

• Asset Condition Assessments (ACA);
• Asset Management Plans (AMP); and
• Distribution System Plans (DSP)

to support short- and long-term planning strategies, and to support the OEB Chapter 5 filing requirements.

Along with our clients, we develop priorities for assessing substations, overhead and underground power systems, as well as associated support systems such as GIS, SCADA, and asset management applications. Asset management plans are created to prioritize programs to maintain and replace assets, and to improve reliability. Both the ACA and the AMP are supporting documents to the DSP, which is part of the OEB Chapter 5 filing. The DSP combines the asset management strategies with the capital expenditures for the plan period, the service reliability indicators, third party coordination, and renewable energy generation considerations. We’ll help you write these reports for your Cost of Service filing.
