Prevent engine downtime with SMART recommendations
Decision making in Gas Turbine Operation & Maintenance
Every day gas turbine plant managers, operators & maintenance engineers face many decisions on how to run their plant in the best possible way.
The profitability of a gas turbine operation depends largely on the quality of the day-to-day decision making by all these people involved.
DECIDE remote decision support provides SMART and EASY to understand recommendations that enable GT operation & maintenance managers to take the right decisions at the right time every time again.
Benefits DECIDE decision support at an Oil & Gas operator in the North Sea:
- Engine trip on temperature spread prevented (no indications on the HMI);
- Failed start on actuator problems prevented (no indications on the HMI).
Remote monitoring & diagnostics vs. remote decision support
Many companies have tried to improve their operational results by implementing remote monitoring & diagnostic systems that promise immediate improvement of GT operation & maintenance.
Operators who have worked with these systems have experienced that they do not always bring the value they had expected from them.
Remote monitoring & diagnostics often focus on technical data presentation.
Remote decision support works from the perspective of human operator understanding.
