GE deployed APM—its cutting-edge technology that accurately monitors power-generation assets. GE’s digital management reduces turbine damage and downtime through visibility. Performance-sensors were installed not just on Dangote Cement’s seven aeroderivative turbines but also on associated generators and gearboxes, so that APM can diagnose and predict risks before they occur.
As energy infrastructures become digitally smarter, remote monitoring and predictive maintenance become easier to integrate. Inasmuch, GE extended its service agreement with Dangote Cement for another 50,000 operating hours for the seven GE LM6000PC turbines, ensuring the kind of power-supply efficiency that can extend the life of cement plants.
This extension underscores GE's commitment to collaborating with customers aiming for a lower OpEx and balance of plant. “Operational performance is crucial to our cement plant’s overall productivity, directly affecting all end products,” says Ravi Sood, Dangote Cement Operations Director. With GE’s APM and total plant solutions, Dangote Cement gained the high-performance operability essential to asset health—and the plants’ business strategy.
