GE to Provide Optimization Software for New York Power Authority


By Editors of Power Engineering

GE Power announced an agreement with the New York Power Authority to provide software that will monitor, analyze and enhance the performance of the utility’s 16 power plants and transmission network.

In a release, GE said the collaboration will help accelerate NYPA’s 5-Year Strategic Vision plan by making its facilities more efficient, reliable and cost-effective.

GE’s Asset Performance Management software uses data analytics to monitor power generation and transmission equipment health in order to predict potential failures and reduce unplanned downtime, maintenance costs and operational risks.

 “This is a transformative moment in the 85-year history for NYPA and its customers as we reach the next milestone in our digital journey,” said Gil C. Quiniones, president and chief executive officer at NYPA. “This digital solutions platform supports our primary mission to provide customers with low-cost, clean, reliable power with the industry-leading energy infrastructure and services they value.”

Today’s announcement supports New York State’s Reforming the Energy Vision, or REV, strategy to build a cleaner, more resilient and affordable energy system with NYPA leading on many of the grid and transmission modernization and reliability efforts across the state.

GE was selected to provide the software for NYPA’s Smart Operations Center through a competitive bid process. The Smart Operations Center is expected to begin operations in December 2016.
