Collaborating for power industry digital transformation

04 August 2020

Emerson and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas (MHPS) are joining forces to develop digital technologies, software and services to help utility customers drive operational excellence across North America.

The two companies have agreed to collaborate on digital solutions to optimise performance and reliability, enable predictive and artificial intelligence (AI) driven maintenance strategies, and automate operational decision-making.

The collaboration will build on the expertise of Emerson and MHPS to enhance the performance and reliability of power plants operating with MHPS gas or steam turbines.

“Emerson has worked collaboratively with MHPS for over a decade to bring the best experts, technologies and services to the power generation industry,” said Bob Yeager, president of Emerson’s power and water solutions business. “This next chapter will focus on identifying and delivering the best digital transformation strategies and technologies that will drive operational performance for our customers and create cleaner, more reliable power for consumers.”

The two companies will explore these and other advanced technologies: advanced sensing; thermal, process and equipment modelling and diagnostics; advanced control; analytics; pattern recognition; remote monitoring; digital twin; automated workflows; and AI-driven predictive maintenance.

One of the companies’ collaborations is to build and deploy the next generation of total plant simulation for the Intermountain Power Plant Renewal project. “This collaboration leverages Emerson’s digital twin technology, MHPS’ high-fidelity gas turbine and steam turbine models, and advanced analytics. The simulation solution will seamlessly receive data and operate in parallel with the plant’s integrated control systems and other enterprise platforms to support commissioning and training,” said Marco Sanchez, vice president of intelligent solutions at MHPS.
