Joyce Dasch continues the theory of “Partnering for Power”
This consultative approach, she pointed out, must be adaptable to the varying needs of many different utilities. She noted that their approach breaks down into three basic types of services:
Plant Automation and Performance Evaluations”Before and After” BenchmarkingFleet Analysis
In fact, Emerson has identified quite a few “targets for improvement” within the utilities they call on.
- +Availability+Reliability+Efficiency/Heat rate+Emissions+Stability+Maneuverability- load range+Fleet dispatch+Ancillary services+O&M costs+Staffing”The value of these services to utilities is exemplified by the level of interest,” she said. “Success in North America has led to a rollout in Europe and Asia.”It is too early to say that this program has been a resounding success, but it looks like it has been quite successful on balance, and has produced a variety of new projects for Dasch’s consultative services teams.
