The arrival of digitalization has caused diesel genset maintenance to quickly transform. Current gensets can feature control and electronic systems which through numerous sensors are capable of seeing the status of the genset, how many hours it’s been running and in which conditions. Additionally, they can communicate its status in real time.
In the event of a failure, this can allow for the technical service team to be notified immediately, granting them the capability of carrying out corrective maintenance from the start. Technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) allow for the technical service team to carry out protective measures along with the property’s own technicians, to repare or identify the issue at hand with precision, using the VR and/or AR systems serve as maintenance manuals, or through direct communication, leading people to carry our the necessary oprations in order to reestablish service immediately.
