mPrest, an Israeli global provider of mission-critical monitoring, big data analytics and control software for the energy sector, and the New York Power Authority (NYPA), the largest state public power organisation in the U.S, revealed the release of an updated version of the award-winning asset health management software that they co-developed. The software helps to predict failures in electricity generation transformers before they occur.
The updated version streamlines and automates how power utilities maintain critical assets on the smart grid to prevent power outages and reduce costs. After contributing significantly to mPrest’s Transformer Health Management product and its successful implementation at NYPA’s Robert Moses Niagara Power Project earlier this year, NYPA has installed the application at its Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Project in Schoharie County and its 500 MW Combined-Cycle Power Plant in Queens. The system is currently rolling out to the St. Lawrence Power Project in New York State’s North Country and other sites.
