GE Energy Performs Condition Monitoring Upgrade

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/21/2006, Location: Middle East

GE Energy's optimization and control business successfully completed a critical optimization and diagnostic system upgrade at the largest 00 in Kuwait, owned by EQUATE Petrochemical Company.

The scope of the project included the design, engineering, supply and commissioning of GE Energy's Bently Nevada™ 3500 hardware with System 1® asset management software, which replaced 1,800 transmitters and the existing software at EQUATE's ethylene unit.

"EQUATE had decided to re-start the plant only after the System 1 software had gone live, which enabled the recording of transient start-up data from the critical machines. EQUATE then identified and fixed three critical issues utilizing the new system, thereby avoiding plant shutdown at a later date with a potential loss of one week," said Abdullah Taibah, region executive and general manager, GE Energy.

EQUATE shared its success story at GE Energy's Bently Nevada Users Conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates with a paper titled, "System 1 Pay Off from Day One." The users conference took place this past June.

Commissioned in 1997, EQUATE Petrochemical Company is the largest petrochemical plant in Kuwait. The plant comprises five units dedicated to producing polyethylene and ethylene glycol to markets in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe. EQUATE serves the rapidly expanding global demand for value-added plastics and chemicals of the highest quality. As part of GE Energy's optimization and control business, Bently Nevada asset condition monitoring hardware and software products assess and ensure the mechanical and thermodynamic health of industrial equipment in virtually all industries. With an operations center in Minden, Nev. and sales and services offices in the principal industrial centers of more than 40 countries, this group serves a broad base of more than 25,000 global customers.
