Cogeneration units are – as a critical infrastructure – required to be operational at a moments notice by State. If they are not, the plant operator loses on government subsidies, or is penalised. Ensuring the power & heat generation fleet is in operational state requires constant presence of monitoring and servicing crews as well as earlier than usual exchange of parts – seized cylinder or burned down generator can take days, even weeks, to repair. This significantly lowers the profit margin.
Sensors located at the bearing housings and intake valve help determine bearing health. This helps customer in scheduling maintenance, ordering material and hiring external workers. 24/7 monitoring and nGuard platform offer more flexibility than standard vibrodiagnostics solutions on the market. An IoT sensor-equipped nGuard solution monitors both the gas engine itself and the generator. Alerts are sent to the plant operators to either turn the engine off or schedule maintenance – based on suggestions from our diagnosticians.
