Power Diagnostics® Services
Siemens offers a variety of solutions to help optimize plant operation. One very powerful tool is the Siemens Power Diagnostics® Services that can be applied to either technical function groups of the turbine island or the complete power plant. These services combine our global engineering experience, comprehensive online data acquisition, data processing and analysis, trending, security systems, and the use of an expert knowledge base at remote Power Diagnostics Centers to enable detailed diagnosis of many actual plant conditions and recommendations for improvements.
Scheduled outage instead of unplanned shutdownOur goal is to help you identify, assess and diagnose abnormal operating conditions and determine follow-up actions – basically identify a potential problem before it impacts operations. Using Power Diagnostics services, we can help you turn an unplanned shutdown into a scheduled outage supported by the personnel and materials needed to make the best use of your time and money. Bottom line – in the long run our diagnostics service can help drive optimized operation, higher availability and improved turbine island efficiency.
