On May 5, Hydro Review will be hosting a webcast that will increase attendees’ understanding of the four phases of a digital transformation journey as it relates to hydro turbine reliability and condition monitoring programs.

Attendees at this webcast — called Digital Transformation of Hydro Reliability Programs — will hear from two experts who will discuss the fact that hydropower generation operators are striving to digitally transform their operations to meet an increase in wind and solar power sources on the grid. As hydro plants transition from baseload to load following, new stresses are being placed on these aging assets, necessitating more advanced monitoring and reliability techniques and technologies.

During this webinar, the speakers will explore four phases of a digital transformation journey as it relates to hydro turbine reliability and condition monitoring programs. They also will discuss the use of sensors, data replication, analytics and fleet management software to improve visibility of operations and ultimately enable smarter operational and maintenance decisions.

The Bently Nevada experts presenting during this webcast are Mark Snyder, senior application engineer – renewables, and Chris Kramm, senior product manager – system 1.

This webcast is sponsored by Bently Nevada, which offers a plant-wide, holistic suite of machine condition monitoring and protection hardware, software and services to help achieve the highest level of asset reliability possible –backed up by over 60 years of industry-leading expertise and global support. It will be moderated by Elizabeth Ingram, content director for Hydro Review and HYDROVISION International.
