Webcast: Diagnostic Services: Hybrid Intelligence for Maintenance Optimization


On Oct. 20, Voith Hydro experts will present a webcast called Diagnostic Services: Hybrid Intelligence for Maintenance Optimization.

Hydropower plants have moved from traditional operation to frequent mode changes and increased operation under suboptimal conditions. As the thereby increased maintenance demand has to be met despite reduced operations and maintenance budgets, maintenance has to become more intelligent and easier to plan and has to be based on the actual condition of the equipment. To achieve this goal, Voith has set up a data expertise center called the OnPerformance.Lab. The OnPerformance.Lab, a multi-disciplinary team of experts in data analytics and hydropower, provides diagnostic services, lifting maintenance planning to the next level.

With almost four years of running services, Voith Hydro experts will present their experiences of diagnostic services delivery in hydropower business. Presenting the service solutions, major findings, new aspects and future potentials are the major focus topics of this webinar.

The presenters are Dr. Thomas Mahnke, global product manager, and Dr. Alexander Jung, head of digital hydro solutions, Voith Hydro Holding GmbH & Co. KG.

Dr. Mahnke is global product manager for Voith Hydro’s digital services and co-development projects, with a focus on OnPerformance.Lab solutions.

He holds a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering and applies 25 years of experience in the design of power generation equipment combined with methods and science know-how in technical product development.
