Today, Chubu Electric Power Co., Inc. (President & Director: Satoru Katsuno; located in Higashi-ku, Nagoya City; "Chubu Electric Power") and NTT Communications Corporation (President: Tetsuya Shoji; located in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; "NTT Com") agreed to adopt NTT Com's Things Cloud® (Note 1) with the goal of increasing the sophistication and efficiency of Chubu Electric Power's facility maintenance operations.
So that the electric power and other facilities that it owns may be efficiently operated, Chubu Electric Power has advanced initiatives to utilize sensors attached to equipment and other IoT devices to digitalize and collect a range of data on water levels, temperature, humidity, vibration and other operating parameters.
This introduction of NTT Com's IoT platform Things Cloud® will allow IoT devices to be centrally managed and the collected data to be visualized in graphs and other diagrams. This will allow for easy remote monitoring of a range of data about facilities that previously required workers to be on-site to directly verify themselves. Moreover, because the collected data may also be analyzed, the optimized equipment operation is also anticipated, enabling potential component problems and other issued to be detected.
Chubu Electric Power will continue to make use of cutting-edge ICT technology with the aim of achieving greater sophistication and efficiency in the operation of electric power facilities.
NTT Com has launched a data-use platform (Note 2) comprising Things Cloud®, which is provided here to Chubu Electric Power, as it strives to help companies enhance their productivity and offer solutions to social issues.
(Note 1) Things Cloud® is an IoT platform provided by NTT Com. The service furnishes capabilities and templates that allow the functions and processes necessary for introducing IoT, including data collection, visualization, analysis, management, etc., to be easily realized in a short period of time without programming.
(Note 2) This is a one-stop platform offered by NTT Com that provides all functions necessary for data utilization.
