Tecogen Inc. said it will be installing GE’s Equipment Insight solution to new combined heat and power (CHP) equipment sold in 2016 as part of a pilot deployment program.
In addition, Tecogen has started to roll out the solution on selective deployments across its existing installed base of CHP units. With GE’s technology, Tecogen will be able to collect, analyze and manage asset data continuously and in real time, providing improved insight into the functionality of its CHP units, the company said.
Tecogen, with an installed equipment base of over 2300 CHP units, said it is implementing GE’s Equipment Insight solution to enhance the performance of its assets by ensuring its machinery consistently operates at peak performance and that runtimes are optimized to deliver value for customers. With more than 68% of Tecogen’s customers opting for long-term maintenance agreements, having an advanced, reliable equipment monitoring and diagnostics solution that is continuously operating is essential to ensuring uptime and efficiency, the company said.
