EthosEnergy performed an on-site assessment and found the controls to be a major contributing factor to their reliability issues. EthosEnergy then began to troubleshoot by monitoring the units remotely and performed Plant Health & Diagnostics (engine performance) evaluations.
The customer awarded EthosEnergy a purchase order and began an outage to correct the issues. EthosEnergy’s controls engineers upgraded the turbine and balance-of-plant (BOP) controls to icon™ control systems, corrected UPS issues, power distribution issues, and wiring issues among other problems. The scope also included reconfiguring existing hardware and upgrading/replacing hardware where necessary.
All of the upgrades applied met a standard, repeatable solution whereas the original configuration was very ad-hoc. The outage commitments were met and the customer has also retained EthosEnergy to provide remote support long-term.
