According to the announcement made by Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), the country’s largest fuel retailer, that it has launched India’s first remote monitoring system for oil refineries’ turbines. Union Oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan inaugurated this project, located in Hyderabad on Tuesday.
S M Vaidya, Chairman of the IOC said “This is the first time ever, such a multi-unit monitoring system in the country is being implemented by an Oil PSU in India.”
The IOC chairman also informed that initially the the remote monitoring system was envisaged to be operated out of GE’s Atlanta Analytical Centre located in the United States but owing to Data Residency Clause and National Cyber Security Guidelines, this system would now be operated from Hyderabad.

This new technology is called Proactive Predictive Analytics-based Automated Anomaly Detection and it will allow Gas Turbune Operational Data flowing in digitally from 27 turbines of the eight Indian Oil refineries in order to be analysed continuously in the city of Hyderabad.
Courtesy of this analysis, one can detect and diagnose all emerging issues that are related to gas turbines before they become critical and triggers corrective actions. This will eventually help refineries avoid process unit shutdowns.
