Ämmässuo is the only landfill on the metropolitan area. Nowadays, it is indeed not just a landfill but a versatile waste treatment centre. The operational change has increased the amount of equipment and, furthermore, the maintenance needs.
The need for centralised control of maintenance was detected a few years ago. Then began the search for a suitable software that keeps the maintenance and repair operations coordinated according to modern standards.
– We started a thorough inspection of the kinds of procedures the issue was dealt with elsewhere and the nature of our own requirements. The matter was somewhat complicated by the fact that not one comparable reference was found in the field of waste treatment, says project manager Jukka Salmela from the HSY.
Salmela himself says that one of the reference objects explored by the HSY representatives was the Maritime Administration. It, too, has operational posts scattered around the sea and coastal area, and thus the operations had some similarities. In addition, they had acquired corresponding maintenance software a few years ago and had positive experience.
