Alba unveils new power stations monitoring system

Alba, the world’s largest aluminium smelter outside China, has achieved another milestone in its Industry 4.0 Transformational Journey, with the inauguration of the online performance system for its power stations.

The system will provide a plant performance digital dashboard and measure plant degradation by using digital Industry 4.0 and artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance asset reliability.

Alba chief executive Ali Al Baqali attended the inauguration ceremony yesterday in the presence of chief power officer Amin Sultan and other senior officials in the power station department.

Commenting, Mr Al Baqali said: “The first step in our journey towards digital transformation is changing the way we think and do our business.

“By integrating artificial intelligence and machine learning in our power assets, we will have better control of our power operations, leverage instant real data to boost our productivity and optimise our power plants’ performance.

“The system will allow Alba’s power stations to easily view real time as well as historic health and condition of equipment, create high level reports, diagnose an equipment issue, automate routine calculations in addition to display trend and diagnose plant performance.”
