PPL Corp. has selected an enterprise asset management system for its companywide standard for tracking equipment and infrastructure across all of its operating subsidiaries.

This new license and services contract, valued at approximately $10.2 million, further expands a relationship between PPL and Ventyx. The energy company has used a previous version of Ventyx EAM software to manage its enterprisewide supply chain as well as all work and assets in its fossil generation plants since the mid-1990s. In order to standardize companywide processes and leverage economies of scale, PPL elected to upgrade the Ventyx solution and replace its current solutions used for nuclear and T&D work and asset management with a single integrated solution across all of its operations.

PPL will work with Ventyx Professional Services to implement Asset Suite 7.0. Its services-oriented Foundation Architecture and Compose utility provide flexibility, a configurable interface and the ability to streamline workflow processes.
