Invensys Operations Management announced the winners of its annual Invensys Operations Management OPEN competition. Contestants were recognized for their innovative use of Invensys products and solutions to generate significant business results in four Operational Excellence categories: Asset Excellence, Control Excellence, Productivity Excellence and Environment & Safety Excellence.

The winning applications will be highlighted as part of the North America OpsManage’10 general sessions and Expo in Orlando, as well as at other OpsManage’10 conferences around the globe. Entries were judged by industry experts, trade magazine editors, industry analysts and the Invensys Operations Management executive team.

The 2010 Invensys Operations Management OPEN winner for Asset Excellence is 9ren Group of Madrid, Spain. 9ren is a new energies group focused on solar energy. The company’s EOSystem, a platform for integrating remote renewable energy facilities in a unified, consistent and reliable control room, is built on Invensys’ ArchestrA System Platform with Historian and Wonderware InTouch HMI + ActiveFactory software.

The Control Excellence award went to Taiwan Power Company. The company upgraded its process control systems at several fossil fuel, hydroelectric and nuclear power generating plants using a Foxboro I/A Series distributed control system and mesh control network, Triconex critical safety systems and turbomachinery controls and SimSci-Esscor dynamic simulation solutions.

The Productivity Excellence award was given to Xcellerex of Marlborough, Mass. Using several Invensys solutions, including Wonderware System Platform, InBatch, InTouch HMI, Historian Software and Historian Client products, the Xcellerex technology platform allows manufacturing capacity to be deployed rapidly, flexibly and at greatly reduced cost compared with conventional technology.

And New Belgium Brewery (NBB) of Fort Collins, Colo., was recognized for Environment & Safety Excellence.
