GE will install GAMA’s 840 MW à„°àƒ§ Anadolu natural gas combined cycle power plant in the city of Kà„±rà„±kkale with its advanced digital solutions, Asset Performance Management (APM) and Operations Optimization (OO) solutions using Predix, the operating system for the Industrial Internet. à‚ Installation of these digital solutions is planned for early 2017.

The deal builds upon last year’s multi-year agreement between GE and Gama to provide planned and unplanned maintenance services under availability and performance guarantees for two GE 9F.05 gas turbines and a GE D11 steam turbine, according to the statement.à‚ 

“Unplanned outages in power plants correspond to 3-8 percent of a plant’s capacity” said Murat Demirel, GE’s Power Services Eastern Europe and Turkey General Manager. “GE’s APM solution will bring a significant efficiency boost through early detection of such outages at power plants currently using this solution. à‚ We estimate these solutions have the potential to save up to $3m annually through early detection of outages.”
