Nuklearna Elektrarna Krsko (NEK) Invests in Oracle Enterprise Asset Management To Unify Asset Information Across the Enterprise

Nuclear Power Plant Extends 23 Year Engagement with Oracle by Collaborating to Define Industry Requirements and by Relying on the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1

Redwood Shores, Calif., - January 28, 2010

Nuklearna Elektrarna Krsko (NEK), Slovenia's and Croatia's only nuclear power plant, has extended its strategic relationship with Oracle. As part of this, Oracle will be providing NEK with a long term IT solution and the parties will cooperate to develop industry requirements for the next generation technology applications in the nuclear utilities market.
• Specifically, NEK will become a member of the Oracle Enterprise Asset Management (eAM) Customer Advisory Board. In addition NEK will lead the newly formed Nuclear Power Generation Special Interest Group within Oracle Application User Group.
• To help support NEK's continuous efforts to improve plant safety and reliability, as well as cost effectiveness of plant operations, Oracle will implement Oracle Enterprise Asset Management (eAM), and the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 at the NEK.
• Oracle eAM will replace NEK's legacy maintenance management system and was chosen because of it being a single, integrated system with unrivalled functionalities for asset management and supply chain planning.
• Oracle eAM will help unify NEK's information environment and deliver asset lifecycle management, as well as leaner operations and improved return on capital investments.
• The Oracle E-Business Suite will deliver integrated work and supply chain management for NEK, incorporating visual navigation planning, work order processing and nuclear systems maintenance.
• The project will be rolled out in three phases, with the first 'pilot' phase beginning in December 2009, followed by the second 'build phase' in April 2010 and the final 'transition' phase in November 2010.
