Condition monitoring facility opens in Hungary

06 December 2011

A new remote condition monitoring centre has been opened by the Bently Nevada business of GE Measurement & Control Solutions in Fot, Hungary.

The new facility will support the company’s global network of remote configuration and monitoring centres, providing continuous 24/7 monitoring and diagnostic services to contracted customers across the globe.

Asen Morkani, Bently Nevada’s services director in Europe, explains in more depth: “Today, many services integral to condition monitoring, including diagnostics and configuration, are being performed remotely, rather than on-site by a service engineer. High bandwidth and high-speed access to corporate data networks have overcome the speed and security limitations that once made remote access impractical. As a result, remote configuration and remote monitoring are fast helping customers in power generation, oil and gas and the process sector to realise significant cost-savings and improve plant availability.”

At remote monitoring centres, customer data is collected, relating to specific metrics, perform machine oversight detect trends and approaching issues and provide trouble-shooting support. Instant response, without the travel time and delay associated with a site engineer visit, can result in problems being averted and machinery being saved. Further benefits could include increased machine efficiency, reduced risk of damage, lower operating expenses, extended intervals between outages, fewer forced outages and reduced repair times.

Remote services are an integral part of Bently Nevada’s systems and programs for asset condition monitoring, providing cost-savings without sacrificing quality. Their full value is achieved when embedded in a Supporting Services Agreement (SSA) combined with periodic on-site support, allowing the collection and maintenance of customer-specific machine design, operating history and service procedures.
