Long-term optimization of assets

Maintenance of the electromechanical equipment is key for a long lifetime of the power plant. The profitability and long-term value of an power plant asset is significantly impacted by the quality of services for operation and maintenance.

To fullfil the requirements remote assistance, emergency troubleshooting and preventive, corrective and predictive maintenance are needed.

Services can range from continuously monitoring of relevant key performance indicators (KPI) up to adaptive operation optimization of multiple units and power plants. Monitoring, diagnosis and analytics of specific environmental conditions, like seasonal sediment load or  cavitation, are additional features.  

Maintenance solutions are provided in a broad range - from inspections on site, remote support during inspection up to recommendations regarding inspection intervals.
With sufficient unit data Metris DiOMera offers the opportunity integrating existing systems and combine the long-term engineering know-how of ANDRITZ Hydro with most modern data analytic methods to reach a higher assessment level of residual lifetime and overall equipment condition.
