Siemens Limited announced that it has secured an order for Digital Fleet Center Solution from Vedanta Ltd., India’s leading natural resources company, to connect its power plant assets at Talwandi Sabo Power Plant (TSPL) in Punjab and Bharat Aluminum Company Limited (BALCO) in Chhattisgarh. Digitally linking these critical power units to Vedanta’s monitoring station will serve to analyze huge amounts of fleet data for continuous monitoring and diagnostics of these assets. This will enable proactive maintenance to help reduce unplanned outages, thereby, optimizing costs and increasing availability of Vedanta’s power assets. Siemens will initially provide three years of maintenance and service support to help ensure continued reliability and operational performance.
As an established global leader in the advancement of digitalization across a wide variety of industries, Siemens has developed comprehensive Digital Fleet Center Solutions that enable power plant fleet operators to seamlessly connect their power generation assets (turbines, generators, boilers and balance of plants), and leverage the power of vast amount of data generated by these machines.
Over the past years, Siemens’ remote diagnostic engineers have gathered data from thousands of machines across the globe. The Remote Diagnostic Centers (RDCs), in the last year alone, generated a large number of Proactive Notifications; 40% of which avoided forced outages and 20% transformed forced outages into planned activities. As a pioneer in the rapid growth of digitalization, Siemens is well-positioned to provide the digital solutions, experience and know-how these companies seek to help them manage costs and improve the availability of their energy assets.
