End of December 2018, a key player in US Power Supply signed a 3-year contract with I-care Reliability Inc. to monitor their critical and Balance of Plant (BoP) assets on all its production sites.
The I-care technicians dedicated to this contract will assure all predictive maintenance tasks are performed during 3 years on the 46 plants of the customer spread across 4 different States in USA. These tasks include periodic vibration analysis, lubrication analysis, electric switch gear and fixed equipment thermal monitoring, and offline motor testing. The program kick-off meeting has been completed with the customer and I-care Reliability will be fully engaged in early March 2019. This is a key win for I-care Reliaiblity Inc and I-care Group overall. I-care Reliability Inc is now a fully established PdM services provider in North
First contact with this new customer started five months ago, in August 2018, during a demonstration of Wi-care™ & I-see™, our Maintenance 4.0 solution. Even if it was too early for the customer to move to such connected solution and thanks to the great work made by our US Sales & Projects team, I-care won the customer’s tender.
What made the difference was the I-care vision of maintenance, the global expertise and service approach I-care Group is able to propose. Indeed, with more than 350 engineers servicing customers in 50 countries worldwide, I-care has acquired an outstanding expertise and is one of the few companies in the world able to propose a A-to-Z solution in Asset Health Management.

Initially, the service provided through this contract will not be remotely done by IIoT devices (requirement from the customer to stay in conventional methods), a first step to Maintenance 4.0 will be done thanks to the integration of all data, analysis and reports into I-see™, the I-care’s cloud-based solution for PdM data treatment. An interface from I-see to the customer’s ERP is also part of the project, allowing the customer to have a seemless end-to-end maintenance process. All along the contract, I-care team will advice and support the customer to progressively integrate remote condition monitoring, thus developing the path and vision with the customer to comprehensive asset heath management, Maintenance 4.0.
