Through the end of 2001, PGV produced more than 1.8 million kilowatts of electricity and has displaced 3.6 million barrels of oil.
Since the early '90s, the plant has depended upon Cayenta's Mainsaver Enterprise Asset Management/Computerized Maintenance Management Software (EAM/CMMS) to help maintain PGV. According to McCue, the facility uses the system's work order, preventive maintenance, purchasing and inventory modules.
Dean hopes that the dependence can be decreased by PGV's introduction of Cimplicity and the upgrading of its GE Fanuc Series 90-30 and Series 90-70 PLCs.
A stream of lava from one nearby fissure reached the PGV grounds late on Sunday or early Monday but stalled behind a berm built on the boundary of the property to hold back the molten flow, said Hawaii County Civil Defense spokeswoman Janet Synder.

The Demirel-Aydin model considers that the PGV and the initial water depth are the main factors that influence the maximum water elevation of earthquake-induced water waves, while ignoring the influence of the PGA and the dominant frequency of the earthquake.
The value of earthquake hazard to buildings is expressed by various parameters of impacting earthquake ground motion such as peak acceleration (PGA), peak velocity (PGV) spectral acceleration response (SAR) or macroseismic intensity degree (I).
"We have found that the steam is very productive." He adds that PGV officials think they can expand output without additional drilling.
A well blowout at that plant in June of this year put PGV's operations on temporary hold, and raised questions among some former geothermal supporters about the wisdom of the undertaking.
