GE secures contract for New York Power Authority's digital transformation

CTBR Staff Writer Published 26 October 2017

GE has entered into a wide-ranging software and professional services agreement with the New York State Power Authority (NYPA).

Under the deal, GE will support NYPA to become fully digital utility, enabling it to use digital solutions to optimize the entire electricity value network.

NYPA will work with GE to digitalize its operations, including 16 generating facilities, ,400 miles of electricity transmission network and around 1,000 public buildings it monitors across the state.

NYPA president and CEO Gil Quiniones said: “NYPA is committed to the further build-out of our vision to become the first digital utility,  creating a real-time digital replica of our assets and automating many back-office processes.”

The latest deal is based on NYPA 2016 commitment to use GE’s asset performance management software for effective functioning of power generation and transmission assets and to detect potential future outages.

The scoped of the new deal includes the implementation of GE’s Predix application development platform as NYPA’s industrial IoT platform.

NYPA will also use GE’s software for effective functioning of its fossil and hydroelectric-fueled power generation assets.

The utility is also planning to implement Predix-based software at its Smart Operations Center (iSOC) in White Plains of New York. It will help to build a dashboard for all of its power plants and transmission assets at the center.

In addition, NYPA will explore intelligent environment technology from GE’s Current to improve energy efficiency and digital productivity in public buildings and across its municipal customer base.

Current’s CityIQ intelligent sensor nodes will be incorporated into NYPA’s LED street lighting at various smart city demonstration projects across New York state.

NYPA president and CEO Gil Quiniones said: “NYPA is committed to the further build-out of our vision to become the first digital utility,  creating a real-time digital replica of our assets and automating many back-office processes.”
