GE Oil & Gas has announced that it has signed a contractual service with agreement with PT Donggi Senoro LNG (DSLNG). Under the contract, GE will supply full package services, including planned and unplanned maintenance (spare parts, supervision, manpower, repairs). In addition to this, it will monitor non-GE equipment supplied by other original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). This marks the first time that GE will guarantee performance on equipment belonging to other companies, including electric motors, as well as centrifugal compressors.
The deal is worth over €102 million and will see GE act as the sole contractual supplier. The contract will also make use of a bonus scheme, which is linked to real customer production and will strengthen the partnership concept that the contract offers to customers. In addition to this, a full reliability max predictivity solution package will be supplied to the plant, which will include a focused diagnostic engineer, monitoring and diagnostics, and offer the optimisation of asset performance management and maintenance operations. GE will make full use of its own software engineers to develop a dedicated platform that will interpret data collected from machines constructed by other manufacturers.
The plant site in Bangga Regency, in the Province of Central Sulawesi in Indonesia, will also be home to a highly skilled resident GE team. This will ensure constant coverage of the operation.
Visal Leng, General Manager for Asia Pacific, GE Oil & Gas, said: “This flagship project is immensely exciting for us both because it sees GE Oil & Gas employing its service offering to serve and monitor the performance of machines manufactured by other companies.
“DSLNG has taken an industry leading step by signing a maintenance agreement with just one supplier for its LNG plant. We believe this is a sign of things to come as operators move towards greater integration across their portfolios.”
Iwan Chandra, the President Director of GE Oil and Gas Indonesia, said: “This deal will allow GE and DSLNG to monitor plant equipment in a single interface and identify issues before they become problems in order to ensure better reliability and safety. By leveraging our engineering expertise and extensive knowledge of big data analytics, we have been able to create an integrated system that optimises the flow and quality of information to plant operators. This is a huge step forward in terms of monitoring and diagnostics and has the potential to unlock significant productivity gains.”Gusrizal, the President Director of DSLNG, said: “GE was the best choice for this maintenance contract because of its strong expertise in data analytics. GE’s cutting edge data solutions and ability to monitor machines from different manufacturers sets it apart. We look forward to embark in this long-term partnership to maintain, to the very highest degree of performance, Donggi Senoro LNG plant, which has such huge strategic significance to Indonesia, especially in Central Sulawesi region.”
The full reliability max predictivity solution package is engineered to optimise the information stream for diagnostic engineers. In addition to this, GE will provide a web-based service, which will allow the company to monitor the machines during real time performance.
The LNG plant was built in 2011 and is capable of producing 2 million tpy of LNG, which is mostly exported.
