EDMONTON, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Matrikon(TM) Inc. (TSX:MTK) together with Meridian Energy have been honored with the 2007 Engineers Australia Excellence Awards (Newcastle Division) for its innovative Predictive Asset Management (PAM) system.
The award winning submission was judged via a rigorous process and was met with high praise from the panel of fifteen senior engineers. Excellence Award judges commented, "This project showed a high degree of collaboration between Meridian Energy and Matrikon which resulted in a very successful project. This is predominantly a software integration project using some off-the-shelf products put together to solve this problem but easily adapted for a variety of other asset management situations."
"I'd like to thank Meridian Energy for their vision and commitment to this project..." says Sam Crisifulli, Managing Director of Matrikon's Asia-Pacific Operations. "... and in particular, Garth Dibley and Neil Gregory; without their unrelenting belief in this project, this would never have been a success."
Having won this divisional award, the PAM system entry will now be judged on a national level. "Finalists in the annual Australian Engineering Excellence Awards are members of an elite group of Australia's premier engineers who have set global benchmarks for best practice in their fields of endeavor and are leaders in the profession, showing world class expertise and innovation in developing and implementing engineering solutions. Engineers Australia congratulates all those that reach this level of achievement". (Engineers Australia website)
