Maven Consulting provides a wide range of professional services to the electricity generation, transmission and distribution industries. Our primary focus is to help our clients achieve their project goals. One way we do this is through our utility Asset Management services. Asset management programs for electric utilities are essential to achieve a level of performance out of the asset base while managing risk at an acceptable cost.
The foundation of Maven’s asset management practice is our depth of experience, research, and awareness of asset management best practices used by electric utilities across North America including artic climates.
Maven uses tools such as the CEATI asset management Maturity Matrix to identify the elements of a comprehensive asset management program and to evaluate the organization’s current systems. A gap analysis can be created and then priority assigned to the most important elements of the asset management program to be improved.
