An important consideration in the selection of Emerson was the robust diagnostic capabilities offered by its AMS Suite predictive maintenance software. AMS Suite will provide online access to instrument and valve diagnostics and automatic documentation of field device maintenance information – all contributing to ongoing efficiency at the solar plant. It will also be used to streamline device configuration and commissioning.“This is a truly innovative project that will be an important source of clean, reliable electricity,” said Bob Yeager, president of Emerson Process Management’s Power & Water Solutions. “By providing integrated control of major equipment and processes, our Ovation system and the predictive intelligence of AMS Suite will play a key role in the smooth, efficient operation of this noteworthy solar project.” The contract was awarded by Cobra Thermosolar Plants Inc.
