  • Increase output and turndown capabilities, while improving availability and controlling emissions with OpFlex Advanced Controls solutions.
  • Meet stringent performance targets by achieving more efficient startups and robust response to grid transients.
  • Improve startup and running reliability with advanced software based on data from a fleet of operating units.
  • Get the best possible performance while automatically maintaining emission compliance.
  • Draw actionable insights from real-time data to improve operation and maintenance.
Control made easy

Mark VIe integrated control system features

Operator graphics are designed to make the operators more effective with essential data highlighted and actionable information easily identifiable.  The advanced engineering toolset is built to capture events and rapidly identify root cause maximize uptime and plant productivity. The Mark VIe features scalable redundancy so you can meet changing power demands as your plant grows.

Integration with basic process control systems

GE understands the importance of seamless integration between your DCS, safety, and basic process control solutions.

The combination of open protocols, Ethernet-based I/O network enables the Mark VIe integrated control systems to control your generation asset and the BOP around the assets. When combined with the Mark VIeS safety system and GE’s Generator control EX2100e and LS2100e your complete plant is controlled and maintained from one simple tool with common access to the full plant.

The Mark VIe platform enables real-time visualization by securely sharing data through the plant-wide control system, HMIs, data historians, device management systems, and enterprise trending tools.

Tough, secure, and high performing

The Ethernet-based distributed architecture of the Mark VIe integrated control solution enhances interoperability for improved lifecycle management.

The proven and reliable Mark VIe integrated control platform helps keep operations safe and secure through being:

  • Connected: 100% Ethernet at all levels
  • Flexible: distributed or centralized I/O
  • Scalable: designed to accommodate evolving systems and applications
  • Reliable: configured for simplex, dual, or triple redundant operation
  • High performance: local process on each module, computing power grows as system expands
  • Rugged: hardware rated up to 70°C
  • Secure: Achilles Level 2 certification

Versatile, open-architecture control system

Mark VIe integrated control software was developed specifically for power generation applications. Implementing a modular architecture, Mark VIe ICS allows for a mission-specific turbine control within the same environment as an open plant process control. 

The system can scale across applications ranging from turbine to plant-level control and protection. Additionally, the modular technology provides extended life and allows for future technology upgrades and obsolescence protection.

  • Meet the most stringent cyber security requirements with Achilles* certified controllers and compliance with the proposed North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Version 5 Critical Infrastructure Protection Reliability Standards.
  • Access modern fieldbus technology for increased diagnostics for proactive maintenance.
  • Gain efficient maintenance and improved lifecycle costs with equipment-prediction capabilities.
  • Choose from several operations and maintenance (O&M) tools ranging from alarm and event management to performance monitoring and device management.
