Mitsubishi Power introduces global network of Tomoni Hubs

The technology uses AI to support plant operation and maintenance planning.

Mitsubishi Power is introducing a global network of Tomoni Hubs that use artificial intelligence to support plant operation and maintenance decision making. They include connected software, hardware and services that provide pre-warning of impending issues or needed corrective action.

The network includes hubs in Takasago and Nagasaki, Japan; Orlando, Florida, United States; and Alabang, Philippines, with a fifth Hub to be commissioned in Duisburg, Germany, in the third quarter of 2021. Each accesses secure cloud-based analytics and uses distributed knowledge databases.

Tomoni Hubs support all types of energy systems, including traditional steam power plants and gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) plants, as well as renewable power plants, distributed generation, emerging smart energy systems, and all-duration energy storage.
