14 March 2019

PTT Global Chemical Public Company Limited (GC) has signed a 10-year extension to its existing multi-year agreement (MYA) for GE (NYSE: GE) to service six GE 6B and three Frame 5 gas turbines at its Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate power plant in Rayong, Thailand. In addition to its total plant solution offerings, GE also will provide its Asset Performance Management (APM) software as part of GE’s Digital Energy portfolio.

The project also represents the first installation in Thailand of GE’s Predix APM software. APM uses advanced predictive analytics to analyze data, helping to detect and diagnose equipment problems before they occur, increasing asset reliability and availability while also reducing operations and maintenance costs. It helps achieve these improvements by connecting disparate data sources within a plant and using advanced analytics to turn that data into actionable insights.

GE’s APM software solution with monitoring and diagnostics will help GC to detect issues early and receive remote technical support from GE’s Monitoring & Diagnostics Center in Atlanta.
