MHPS introduce MHPS-TOMONI for Geothermal Power Plant
30 March 2020
Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS), concluded a contract to introduce MHPS-TOMONI®, its digital solutions service for the Domo de San Pedro Geothermal Power Station in southern Nayarit, Mexico through the group company in Mexico, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems de Mexico S.A. de C.V. This is the inaugural use of the MHPS-TOMONI for a geothermal power plant, and will allow for real-time monitoring of the plant's status and performance. The goal is to improve the operation and performance of equipment, reduce maintenance and its cost (O&M), while extending the intervals between regular inspections, resulting in an overall improvement of the power plant.
The Domo de San Pedro Geothermal Power Station is the privately-run geothermal power plant in Mexico, operated by Geotérmica para el Desarrollo S.A.P.I. de C.V. (GEODESA). The 27 MW (megawatt) power plant was built by MHPS under a full turnkey EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) contract, and completed in 2016.
MHPS-TOMONI applications originally developed for thermal power plants will provide diagnostic information on the plant status and performance, operational data accumulated on a daily basis, and will provide a detailed support based on the plant's operating status.
