Computerization

In 2011 a new computer system was put into service after one year in development.  This system uses hardware and software from GE.  The programming was done by a local firm, Multi-Dimensional Integration, Inc.  The computer system utilizes redundant PLCs connected through a fiber optic network to five workstations.  All major processes are monitored by system, with many of them able to be controlled by it.

In addition, security and logging was improved.  Every time a change is made, an operator must log into the system using their username and password.  This information can then be retrieved and reviewed.

The Operations Manager and General Manager are also able to access the system via a Virtual Private Network (VPN).  This has proven to be useful in making necessary process changes during recent construction projects.
