Operational Intelligence for the Power Generation Industry

Take informed action to prevent unplanned downtime, prioritize maintenance activity, and improve performance and safety with AtonixOI Power Generation monitoring solutions:

Power Plant Monitoring Solution
Solar PV Monitoring Solution
Wind Farm Monitoring Solution
Industrial Utilities Monitoring Solution
Avoid the power generation industry status quo of costly downtime and poor performance:

900 hours
Average annual unplanned downtime for each fossil fuel generating unit.
$20K
Average hourly lost revenue due to downtime per fossil fuel generating unit.
56%
Of the $15 billon spent on wind generation maintenance was spent on unplanned repairs.
Ensure Asset
Performance

Unreliable asset performance can significantly impact multiple areas of business, eroding revenue and compromising safety. Power generation asset failures cause unplanned downtime, decrease overall production capacity, and increase maintenance spend. The last thing a plant manager needs is lost production from an unexpected outage.

Today’s operations leaders in power generation are turning to operational intelligence as part of their overall asset performance management strategy. AtonixOI turns data into action to prevent issues and optimize performance. Here’s how it works:

AtonixOI In Action

What failures could you prevent with real-time tracking of issues from alert through resolution?


Connect
1000s of system and asset process data tags to OI platform
Connect

Asset data tag:
Cooling tower motor vibration

Detect
emerging reliability and performance issues before they cause failures
Connect
Upon startup, motor vibration was 2-3 times higher than expected – needed further investigation.
Diagnose
issues and prioritize maintenance planning based on impact
Connect
Automated context trends showed highest motor and gearbox vibration in the past year. Vibration was also higher than the other 15 cooling towers on site.
Resolve
issues through collaboration across stakeholders
Connect
Operators verified vibrations with local inspection, shut down the equipment and performed maintenance at next outage, preventing $150k in maintenance and performance derate.

Actionable Power Generation Insights for Asset Experts

Asset experts need actionable insights, not complex math tools, to focus on what they know best – power plant operations. Implement the AtonixOI solution and start realizing benefits in weeks, not months:
Prevent equipment failures and unplanned downtime

by detecting reliability risks like turbine bearing failures or shaft misalignment well in advance of a SCADA alarm or equipment failure for swift diagnosis and proactive resolution.

Improve operational performance

by calculating and monitoring key performance indicators to identify performance issues like inefficient boiler operation or decreasing performance ratio or wind turbine efficiency before they impact generation capacity.

Prioritize maintenance

for scheduled outages by understanding impact of each issue on overall performance.

Improve safety

by monitoring and detecting risks associated with asset failures leading to increased waste emissions or unsafe maintenance conditions.
