Tullow Oil reduces PC power use

Tullow Oil has implemented Verismic Power Manager software across all of its 2,800 PCs

Tullow Oil, the oil and gas exploration and production group, has deployed Verismic's PC Power Management software to "significantly reduce" the power usage of its PCs and laptops worldwide.

The adoption of Verismic Power Manager supports Tullow Oil's overall strategy to reduce the company's carbon emissions.

Tullow Oil has implemented Verismic Power Manager software across all of its 2,800 PCs in use at multiple sites across 25 countries in Europe, South America, Africa and Asia.

Tullow Oil is now able to create a baseline of energy consumption and then implement power policies to reduce its IT energy usage. The IT team can generate reports, detailing power usage of individual workstations worldwide, and enforce optimum energy efficiency across the organisation, said Tullow.

Andy Harper, device management analyst at Tullow Oil, said: "Verismic Power Manager gives us a unique insight into power usage behaviour of our devices whether located at head office in the UK, on a remote oil rig in sub-Saharan Africa or a vessel in the Atlantic Ocean.

"It is set to give us significant cost savings with a reduction in power usage and its advanced functionality can detect if an employee is interacting with a PC or out at a meeting, whilst at the same time avoiding any shut down on workstations that are running modelling or monitoring software."

Harper said the system allowed the company to apply multiple rules dependent on each workstation's requirements.
