Fairbanks Extends Reach Of Digital Platform
By Jack Burke25 July 2018
Launched in 2017, the Fairbanks Morse PoweReliability-as-a-Service platform is now being extended to connect to all FM power systems – even ones commissioned decades ago.
A lightweight retrofittable solution to legacy power systems makes them cloud-enabled, which supports real-time monitoring by the Fairbanks Morse services team to help extend service life.
As an open platform that utilizes digital technologies like IoT, PoweReliability-as-a-Service can also enable legacy Fairbanks Morse power systems to be integrated alongside renewable distributed energy resources (DER) such as solar, wind, and energy storage. This provides tremendous flexibility for power systems operators because the plug-and-play, retrofittable platform can incorporate new technological advancements over time.
Fairbanks Morse also announced its new, modernized corporate website (www.fairbanksmorse.com) and rebranding. As the company moves well into its second century of operations, the changes are designed to reflect the vision for powering the world forward with innovative, smart and efficient power solutions.
“Our goal is to deliver value through digital innovation. The new website reflects this vision through a powerful user experience from a customer’s first visit that continues along their journey toward ongoing service, parts ordering, and lifecycle support,” said Kim Getgen, vice president of sales and marketing at Fairbanks Morse. “This comprehensive approach is built around a brand promise to exceed our customers’ expectations and conveys the values of a modern, technology-focused company that is disrupting the future of power generation, creating innovative solutions to 21st century business problems, and is committed to broadening global access to reliable electricity.”
