OC6000e Turbine Control  

In today’s competitive production environment, process industries demand a totally integrated control and optimization solution that can increase productivity, reliability, and quality while minimizing cost. These customers are driven to search for solutions to improve their competitive edge and to enhance their return on investment.

GE Energy’s OC 6000e* Distributed Control System is designed to meet these customers’ needs. The system and its advanced solutions deliver operating efficiency improvement, productivity gain, unit reliability and availability

Enhancement, and overall cost reduction. Its distributed architecture reduces impact from loss of system components and ensures production continuity.

The component and network redundancy guarantees the operability of critical system and control functions.

The OC 6000e DCS ensures operation safety and effectiveness. Seamless integration of its advanced control and optimization solutions further improves unit efficiency, reduces forced and unplanned outages, extends the maintenance cycle, increases unit reliability and availability, and minimizes operation cost
