Western Plains Energy – Digital Transformation Success

Western Plains Energy is a thriving ethanol production facility located in Oakley, Kansas.  WPE began operations in 2004 and now produces approximately 50,000,000 gallons of denatured ethanol annually. Data management is essential to smooth and successful plant operations at Western Plains.

WPE’s production process requires reviewing and analyzing large amounts of data by  various people within the organization. Their previous data management system had limitations. Data from the DCS system was only available on the control network, and the laboratory data was scattered across various spreadsheets that provided varying levels of access to different people. With the old system, WPE had to spend a great deal of time reconfiguring data to put it into a useable form.

“dataPARC has given me the ability to access data anywhere, any time that I want it, any way that I want it.”
