eLogger Trainer Visits Apex Generation

Earlier this month, Kevin had a chance to visit sunny and (very) warm Las Vegas to work with Michael Innes, the system administrator for eLogger at Apex Generation, and some of his colleagues on Apex’s initial eLogger setup.  Apex operates a natural gas-fired combined cycle generating facility with a peak output of nearly 600 MW.

Michael is a great partner in setting up and managing Apex’s eLogger installation, and he used to work in Minnesota, so he and Kevin could do plenty of chatting about weather as they worked.

Kevin had done some prep work before his trip, arriving with several custom-built templates ready to load up into the Apex system.  By the time his 3 days visit was done, he and Michael had set up:

  • 2 locations
  • 30 log types
  • 16 prefilled entries
  • 8 scheduled entries
  • 191 (!!!!!) templates

Apex’s eLogger use is broad: rounds, startups and shutdowns, shift events, monthly checks, and the list goes on.

Thanks to Michael and his team for a great visit.  Their friendly welcome was a big help for a northern Minnesotan adjusting to temperatures that broke 110 degrees Fahrenheit.  We’re looking forward to seeing all of that setup in action.
