2023 SEEQ PARTNER OF THE YEAR

On January 11, 2024 SeeQ announced its new Partner of the Year Award recipients and BKO is proud to accept the Sustainability Changemaker award for 2023. We won based on our work in 2023 with TexGen, a Texas power generator. Using the power of SeeQ software, we created real-time monitoring dashboards on critical assets that enabled TexGen to save resources and optimize their operational efficiency. We also installed NoX emissions monitors with early warning systems to enable early response. This creates better air quality for all Texans. “Information Technology plays a crucial role in enabling a secure and sustainable tomorrow by leveraging technology to address existing and emerging global challenges.

Megan Buntain says to all 2023 award recipients,

“In 2023, our global, diverse partner ecosystem helped our shared customers scale, empower and maximize access to data to solve operational challenges,” said Megan Buntain, VP of Global Partnerships and Ecosystem. “We congratulate these outstanding partners for their dedication to delivering the next generation of industrial manufacturing improvements, while providing unmatched value to our joint customers.”
