Posted 7 February 2018 · Add Comment

Abu Dhabi's Turbine Services & Solutions (TS&S), Mubadala's MRO provider for gas turbines and driven equipment is collaborating with Atlas Copco, on an extensive digital optimization process, it was announced today during the Singapore Airshow.


The partnership will enable TS&S to be the first MRO outside of the United States and Europe to embrace the smart connected assembly technology.
The framework will enable TS&S to enhance its processes through data generated solutions known as the Smart Connected Assembly, the process will support optimization by reducing the time spent on assembling engines. This is achieved using the technology to support the technician to improve productivity, reduce the risk of error and provide total data traceability.
Commenting on the agreement, Mansoor Janahi, Deputy CEO of TS&S said "This collaboration supports our vision of being a digitally agile MRO company. As TS&S continues to invest in advanced technologies, our partnership with Atlas Copco is part of a broader strategy that enables us to meet the growing demands of our local and global customers."
The company has plans to digitize its operations to improve efficiency across its MRO operations. With this end, TS&S signed an agreement with Honeywell in January 2018, to implement a "Maintenance and Inspection" (M&I) voice system.
Henrik Elmin, Senior Executive Vice President Atlas Copco and Business Area President Industrial Technique, said: "Smart Connected Assembly is about creating unique value by connecting all assembly related processes. Through Smart Connected Assembly, all processes are networked to each other and integrated into the operational network. Any new data generated is then fed into a digital framework which manages and identifies improvements in and between assembly processes."
