CIMA+ wins a 2017 CEA Award of Excellence for TEMPUS

CEA Award of Excellence for TEMPUS

Laval and Edmonton, February 28, 2017 – We are pleased to announce that CIMA+ received an Award of Excellence in the Natural Resources, Mining and Industry category for its unique online migration system, TEMPUS. Granted by the Consulting Engineers of Alberta, the awards were given to the winners during the CEA Showcase Awards Gala, held on February 24th in Edmonton, Alberta.

“We are proud to see the efforts of David Findlay, Gerald Desrochers, and André Couturier being recognized by CEA. With TEMPUS, they have created and promoted an online tool that redefines control system migration standards. It is truly the embodiment of CIMA+’s ingenuity and commitment to excellence,” says Kelly Yuzdepski, Vice President, Western Canada at CIMA+.

One of the challenges the automation sector is currently facing is the replacement of aging control system infrastructure. All existing migration systems currently require some degree of taking the system offline, which means disrupting plant control. TEMPUS facilitates the live migration from one control system to another, without downtime. Once the new control system is operating the plant, the tool is removed, leaving a new and well-organized control system with no legacy equipment remaining.
