Meridium APM / GE ACM: a more Complete View to Monitor and Manage Plant Operations
The combined offering enables condition-based maintenance and real- time management of equipment downtime and production risks

Last week Meridium announced that GE’s Measurement & Control business made a strategic minority equity investment in Meridium, and entered into a new, non-exclusive alliance and distribution agreement that interfaces Meridium’s APM software and GE’s Bently Nevada System 1™ Asset Condition Monitoring (ACM) software. For customers in oil and gas, power generation, hydrocarbon processing, and other asset-intensive industries, the action offers the opportunity to maximize operational effectiveness and preserve and extend the life of capital assets.

Connectivity Counts in Reducing Risk
Bonz Hart, Meridium Founder / CEO

Why is connectivity critical to reducing operational risk? Well, the benefits that connectivity can offer explain it best. Earlier this year at our annual conference, we focused on the theme “Availability through Connectivity”. In terms of usefulness, connectivity means several things, including having access to all the new, very accurate asset data that you need, when you need it, and where you need it. It also means having different ways to view that information, including dashboards for executive review.  

Asset Management Strategy and ISO 55000
Marc Laplante, Meridium Inc.

When you hear discussion about the ISO 55000 Standard, the question that comes to mind is why manage assets in the first place?  There are some obvious reasons: perhaps an explosion in the Gulf or a bridge collapse in Washington State.
