With the ongoing scarcity of fossil-fuel reserves and fuel poverty, Dalkia, a global leader in energy services, has aspired to create a more sustainable, greener outlook and has done so proactively. The company and GE (NYSE:GE) have worked with over 170 of GE’s Jenbacher gas engines, which total more than 230 megawatts, for the last twenty years. These have been equipped into Dalkia’s cogeneration and district heating applications, including municipalities and hospitals.

Recently, through GE’s distributor, Clarke Energy, the companies have announced that more than one-third of these engines were installed with GE’s myPlant* Asset Performance Management (APM) solution. In one heating session, the fleet of engines could power close to an estimation of 240,000 French households. This results in an efficient outcome, resulting in lower-carbon dioxide emissions. In fact, this solution is comparable to taking 100,000 European cars off the road annually.

Christian Gournet, senior engine expert at Dalkia’s Technical Direction, said:

“In line with the energy transition framework, Dalkia’s main goals are to improve energy performance and identify local resources to promote decentralized production while providing energy savings to our customers. By using GE’s myPlant APM solution, it will help us increase annual uptime of our customers’ plants and expand annual energy production. This increases the availability of our customers’ assets.”

MyPlant APM is a solution to Digital Internet as it provides a set of tools for advanced data management, predictive analytics, troubleshooting and remote control to reduce maintenance costs of customers’ power plants. According to the myPlant package and access level, customers and service providers are provided with several proficiencies from basic visibility to their fleet to advanced monitoring and analytics-enabled diagnostic capabilities.

Margherita Adragna, general manager, services for GE’s Distributed Power, elaborates:

“GE’s myPlant APM solution allows Dalkia to enhance the performance of its customers’ facilities, and the dedicated mobile app gives Dalkia a better ‘on-the-go’ experience to monitor its Jenbacher assets anytime and anywhere.”
