Sembcorp Launches its Global Asset Management System

Singapore, Mar 31, 2017

- Offers advanced digital tools with data analytics to support plant operations

Sembcorp Industries (Sembcorp) today launches the Sembcorp Global Asset Management System (GAMS). Utilising advanced digital tools, the system puts Sembcorp at the forefront of using predictive analytics in the operations of utilities plants. The official launch ceremony was graced by Guest of Honour, Ms Low Yen Ling, Parliamentary Secretary at the Ministry of Trade and Industry and Ministry of Education, and Mayor of South West District, this morning.

Housed with the Sembcorp Technology & Innovation Centre on Jurong Island, the Sembcorp GAMS is able to leverage on the Group’s global knowledge and experience to drive operational excellence. It also enables the Group, which has utilities operations across 14 countries, to manage its global businesses and assets reliably and efficiently. In 2016, the Sembcorp GAMS was launched across the Group’s operations in Singapore, India, Oman, the UAE and UK.

The system consolidates operational data for Sembcorp’s global operations on a real-time basis and focuses on three key areas:

  1. Plant Optimisation: To ensure optimal plant performance by benchmarking plant performance data and providing automated alerts of abnormal occurrences.
  2. Predictive Maintenance: To reduce unplanned outages by early detection of equipment problems and by optimising the timing of maintenance.
  3. Process Improvement: To maximise efficiency and productivity by proactive identification and enhancement of existing plant processes and by optimising assets.

Mr Tang Kin Fei, Group President & CEO of Sembcorp Industries, said, “In today’s digital era, it is exceptionally important for companies to leverage the full potential of technological solutions. The introduction and launch of the Sembcorp Global Asset Management System is part and parcel of Sembcorp’s continued investment in platforms and partnerships that enable us to strengthen our technological edge and stay globally competitive.”

The set-up of the Sembcorp GAMS also demonstrates the Group’s commitment to strengthen and develop competencies in the technology and digital space. This involves close collaboration with partners including the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) who are supporting the company’s efforts to build expertise in digitalisation.

“In line with Singapore’s push to embrace the digital economy, the EDB is partnering the industrial and infrastructural sectors in Singapore to leverage digitalisation to enhance competitiveness and improve labour productivity. Singapore is also building up capabilities in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and grooming solution providers in this ecosystem. We are pleased that Sembcorp’s new Global Asset Management System, first of its kind in Singapore, is exemplary of how companies can leverage Singapore as a global command centre to collect and analyse data from all its global operating assets.” said Mr Lim Kok Kiang, Assistant Managing Director for EDB.
