    Case study: Bently Nevada upgrade improves monitoring capabilities

    3500 installation NVMSA significant Australian oil and gas operator recognised the high risk in running obsolete vibration monitoring systems that were no longer supported or serviceable on critical machines. The client had a short window of opportunity in which to upgrade their old system to the new Bently Nevada 3500 systems.

    A project of this size would normally take over six to 12 months, but NVMS scoped, supplied and installed the new system in just over three. The new system met the urgent need of the client to get their equipment online with reliable monitoring and also increased their capabilities, all on time and within budget.

    NVMS engineered the system so it fit requirements, performed witnessed factory acceptance testing, prepared workpacks and scheduling, managed subcontractors, supervised installation on site and commissioned the racks.

    The client now has reliable and serviceable monitoring on their critical machinery. They also connected another eight machines on site to System 1, GE’s online diagnostics tool for condition monitoring. This gives them greater visibility into their machinery health, allowing them to improve each asset’s reliability and more cost effectively plan their maintenance campaigns.
