Siemens partners with Vedanta to modernize its power assets in India

Siemens has announced that it has secured an order for Digital Fleet Center Solution from Vedanta to connect its power plant assets at Talwandi Sabo Power Plant (TSPL) in Punjab and Bharat Aluminium Company (BALCO) in Chhattisgarh. Digitally linking these critical power units to Vedanta’s monitoring station will serve to analyze huge amounts of fleet data for continuous monitoring and diagnostics of these assets. This will enable proactive maintenance to help reduce unplanned outages, thereby optimizing costs and increasing availability of Vedanta’s power assets. Siemens will initially provide three years of maintenance and service support to help ensure continued reliability and operational performance.


Siemens has developed comprehensive Digital Fleet Center Solutions that enable power plant fleet operators to seamlessly connect their power generation assets (turbines, generators, boilers and balance of plants), and leverage the power of vast amount of data generated by these machines.


Samir Cairae, CEO – Diversified Metals (India), Vedanta, said, “Innovation and sustainability are at the core of the strategy of Vedanta. As a part of that thrust, Vedanta uses digital technology extensively in mining but also in increasing reliability and output of our plants and equipment. Vedanta intends to intensify the use of digital further, to optimize but also for breakthroughs. For our power plants, we would use digital technology to increase availability, to do predictive maintenance and to better manage our fuel feeds. This will also enable us to monitor critical functions of Vedanta¹s power plants in real time by using the richness and intelligence of digital information.”


Prashant Jain, Head, Power Generation Services, Siemens, said, “Vedanta has been one of the pioneers in the implementation of innovative technology solutions and automation across its plants and processes. As a provider of integrated digitalization solutions across the production value chain, Siemens is delighted to partner Vedanta in its continuous journey of modernization of its power assets across India. Digitalization has a huge role to play in India’s demand for reliable, efficient and clean power, due to the increasing urbanization and industrialization. We look forward to this and future collaborative opportunities that will contribute to India’s sustainable progress.”
