Operation and maintenance
Based on the long-term experience and competences of our staff, ANDRITZ is able to provide operation and maintenance services in order to optimize power plant performance and to ensure asset reliability. Operational control can be achieved locally with an on-site team or remotely with our experienced operators located in our Regional Control Centre. They are able to manage plant performance and monitor trends and data in order to maximize availability and anticipate any potential issues. Our digital solution is based on a modular and flexible design, and provides decision guidance for target-oriented maintenance programs.
Long-term optimizations of assets
Maintenance of the electro-mechanical equipment is key to the long operational lifespan of a hydropower asset. The profitability and long-term value of a hydropower plant is significantly impacted by the quality of the ren-dered services. To fulfill value requirements and return on investment, remote assistance, emergency troubleshoot-ing and preventive, corrective and predictive mainte-nance are necessary. ANDRITZ services can range from continuous monitoring of relevant key performance indicators (KPIs) to adaptive operational optimization of multiple units and power plants.
Digitalization and automation
For the design of modernization projects, automation solutions based on optimized hardware architecture and systematic integration of the required functions are a significant factor. ANDRITZ’s concepts enable fully automated operations, low investment costs, simple commissioning, and rapid system replacement.
Today, digitalization is already having a big impact on hydropower. For more than two decades digital controllers, IP-based communication and computerized engineering have been state-of-the art. The next generation digital breakthroughs are based on smart sensors, use of Big Data for predictive maintenance, and virtual/augmented reality.
Digital solutions from ANDRITZ can be optimally adapted to specific customer needs and are already import-ant components for a future-oriented asset strategy.
