The 2018 Ontario Consulting Engineering Awards Award of Merit in the category of Industry, Energy + Resources was awarded to Eramosa Engineering Inc. for their collaborative work with the London Health Sciences Centre power plant and energy systems data management and visualization project. The primary goal of the project was to re-establish integrity of the data being utilized for the energy procurement, reporting and management tasks. Secondary goals were to automate manual data processing and house all data in one system instead of having to manually extract data from multiple systems as well as to have a near real-time reporting and data visualization tool established to allow LHSC to make better operational decisions. LHSC retained Eramosa to develop a solution to achieve these goals. Eramosa was presented with the award at the 16th Annual Ontario Consulting Engineering Awards Gala held on April 21, 2018.

At Inductive Automation’s Ignition Community Conference (ICC) 2017 Eramosa was presented the Gold Firebrand Award for Transformative Projects. The winning project was completed for Canadian Solar Solutions and connected numerous systems for a brighter solar future. This project involved working with Canadian Solar to create CSEye — a custom hybrid asset performance monitoring and computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) application for the solar photovoltaic (PV) operations & maintenance sector of the renewable power-generating market. CSEye is a comprehensive tool providing value to stakeholders at all levels of the Canadian Solar operations & maintenance group. Ignition provided a customizable application development environment providing full access to critical operational data from various existing SCADA architectures while allowing the project to scale as needs arose. By using Ignition Eramosa was able to solve the problem of disjointed legacy systems, providing a single application environment. The application has several benefits to the project Owner including cost-effective licensing that scales, reliable historical data feeds for near real-time analysis, modern communication protocols such as OPC-UA, Modbus, EthernetIP , Siemens Ethernet, and RESTful web services as well as standardized charting tools, UDT structures and Python scripting for database queries.
