With Metris DiOMera, ANDRITZ’s Research and Development team has created a comprehensive digital solution, which is a digital asset management platform to compliment modern hydro power plant management practices. It is initially configured for the power plant, continuously extracts and analyses data and intelligently recommends future actions and acts as the ideal predictive maintenance control tool.
The two main objectives of Metris DiOMera are: (a) to optimize the maintenance by reducing the maintenance activities and/or its intervals (b) to increase the production i.e. availability by reducing maintenance. It furthermore has the capability to optimize the load dispatching between multiple generating units thereby increasing the annual production.
The system is deliberately designed to be passive to permit human intervention and plausibility on its recommended actions.
Via the Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) function, all maintenance activities are programmed, scheduled and managed. Metris DiOMera continuously analyses the plant condition, considering the prevailing operating environment to dynamically adjust and recommend new maintenance intervals. Metris DiOMera is more than just a condition-monitoring gadget; it is a fully integrated prescriptive tool utilizing advanced data analytics.
Metris DiOMera finally translates all the complex analysis and reduces it into KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), KDIs (Key Diagnostic Indicators) and KTI (Key Trend Indicators) - management acronyms to assist stakeholders to understand and decide on long term strategic business actions.
Metris DiOMera adds value as it provides a management basis to understand the asset performance and to quantify asset life and value.
With extensive experience and a strong technological expertise, ANDRITZ has already secured various O&M contracts in India and other countries. “Engineered success” is our motto and we are pleased to assist our customers to step in a new aera of plant operation and maintenance.
