Sri Lanka’s largest hydropower complex implements IFS to improve operational efficiency

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that the Mahaweli Hydro Power Complex, part of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), has gone live with IFS Applications™.

IFS commenced implementation at the Kotmale and Upper Kotmale Hydro Power Stations in 2012 and 2013. Following the successful and rapid implementation of IFS Applications at these two plants, the solution has been extended to cover the company’s remaining six hydropower stations: Victoria, Randenigala, Rantambe, Ukuwela, Bowatenna, and Nilambe.

By running IFS Applications, the Mahaweli Hydropower Complex will streamline processes such as maintenance, procurement, inventory, and document management.

“The successful deployment of IFS Applications marks a key milestone for our organization,” said the CEB deputy general manager Sarath K Tilakaratna. “By creating a central information hub, we are now better positioned to continue to improve our resource planning, which ultimately allows our plants to operate effectively and efficiently.”

Poorna Bandara, General Manager and Director of Consulting, IFS South Asia added that, “It is a proud moment for IFS as we deliver yet another successful ERP project. With the cooperation of the excellent project team assembled by the CEB, we have helped the customer align its operations with global best practice. The CEB is a mammoth institution in our country and we are very pleased to support its drive for efficiency and effectiveness. We are committed to being a strong partner to the CEB in the years to come.”
