OPG Honored with Game Changer Award for Digital Data Approach

"The innovative approach to digital remote management contributed markedly to OPG’s success in its clean energy transformation."

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Game Changer program, hosted by Chemical Engineering magazine and POWER magazine, recognizes those who are leading implementation of digital technologies in their field. The 2021 Connected Plant Conference in Austin, Texas, recognized the Ontario Power Generation (OPG)  3D scanning team as a “Game Changer” champion for their approach to digital remote management.

The team identified and implemented laser scanning technology in February 2019 with several key objectives. “The technology had to integrate smoothly with OPG’s existing governance and workflow,” the team noted. The technology also had to be deployed easily on their server to provide easy access for all employees, it said. Finally, it had to support and import all third-party laser scan data, and it had to meet accuracy specifications of less than or equal to 1 millimeters. To enable detailed visualizations, the team chose to integrate 5K imagery with the scan data (point clouds), which required a robust system architecture. While the complex task was challenging, the innovative approach to digital remote management contributed markedly to OPG’s success in its clean energy transformation.

The Game Changer Award was presented to all members of OPG’s 3D Scanning Team: Jaydev Chauhan, Khizar Hamid, Eric Heyen, Dax Patel, Richard Sunnucks, Arnes Turkanovic, and Martin Vanderheyden.
