Predix Asset Performance Management
Kahramaa is the sole transmission and distribution system owner and operator for the electricity and water sector in Qatar.
Kahramaa had an ambitious business goal to identify and prioritize maintenance and asset replacement based on risks related to the current condition of all electrical assets across their distribution substations.
Kahramaa worked with GE to implement an Asset Performance Management (APM) system that could provide consistent analytics for all assets, recommendations for action based on condition and risk, and provide comprehensive, fleet-wide reporting. The solution needed to cover over eleven thousand distribution substations and one hundred and fifty thousand assets, consisting of twelve different asset types.
With the system in place, Kahramaa is now able to analyze the condition of their grid-wide assets. The number of substation faults have been reduced by more than 50% and Kahramaa achieved an ROI on the system of 180% after 2 years of implementation.
