Zhuhai power plant improved its operations with the help of ABB AbilityTM Condition Monitoring for powertrains, enabled by the ABB AbilityTM Smart Sensor. These digital solutions provide operational data and insights enabling plant managers to make better decisions about which motors to focus on for maintenance. By detecting faults in advance, the plant has enhanced uptime, safety and efficiency.

The power station installed ABB Ability Smart Sensors on 34 critical pumps, fans and mixers. These sensors measure key operational parameters, including availability, number of starts, running conditions, temperature, current, vibration and fault events. ABB Ability Condition Monitoring services analyze the collected data to provide intelligent insights for monitoring operational variables and health indicators to keep operations running safely, reliably, and cost-effectively.

ABB’s digital solutions enable easy access to data from equipment in locations that may be difficult or dangerous to reach. Condition monitoring enables users to remotely monitor the health of their motors and generators, detect early signs of potential problems and plan maintenance activities to avoid unplanned downtime.

ABB Ability™ empowers insights for safer, smarter operations that maximize resource efficiency and contribute to a low-carbon future.
