On-site power generation firms INNIO and Aggreko have launched a fleet monitoring and diagnostic agreement covering the latter’s natural gas, heavy fuel oil, diesel, renewable and battery power fleets.

INNIO’s myPlant Asset Performance Management (APM) tool will allow for real-time monitoring and diagnosis of Aggreko’s power fleet. Innio signed a multiyear supply deal with Aggreko one year ago, and both companies’ project teams have been working on completing the development details.

The myPlant APM product is a remote digital monitoring solution that is original equipment manufacturer agnostic and can be used across a diversified range of equipment, according to the company. With more than 100 data points being derived from each of the assets, Aggreko will be able to ensure the performance and uptime of its power plants.

 “With the deployment of INNIO’s myPlant APM digital solution, we now have the capability to remotely monitor hundreds of thousands of sensors across our mixed fleet of power generation assets,” said Dan Ibbetson, Global Products and Technology Director of Aggreko, in a statement. “myPlantis improving our capabilities by increasing performance and preventing system disruptions, helping us improve our services for our customers worldwide—ranging from backup power for numerous industries to natural disasters.”

The project represents one of the largest INNIO myPlant solutions for reciprocating engines and generators worldwide.

The myPlant offering uses secure, centralized cloud storage to collect data from customers’ power generation and distribution assets, regularly transmitting sensor data streams, control alarms and operational data to improve real-time monitoring capabilities.

“Our myPlant platform provides Aggreko with a custom solution for their needs. We are excited to collaborate with Aggreko on their digital roadmaps by leveraging Aggreko’s deep domain knowledge and INNIO’s digital and data science expertise,” said Feilim Coyle, Services Leader of INNIO. “As Aggreko evolves to meet their end customer needs across a range of use cases, our myPlant digital solutions will support them in making better decisions to improve equipment uptime and operating costs.”

Austria-based INNIO was created when GE sold off its Distributed Energy business to Advent International for $3.25 billion last year. The product line includes the Jenbacher and Waukesha gas engines, the digital platform and related service offerings.

Aggreko is a global onsite and temporary power equipment and service provider.

On-site power, backup, emergency or standby gen-sets are used by municipalities, military bases, universities, data centers and hospitals, among other sectors.
