Mubadala’s Turbine Services Solutions to use Honeywell’s Maintenance voice system
Turbine Services and Solutions, a solutions, maintenance, repair and overhaul provider for gas turbines and driven equipment, wholly owned by Mubadala Investment Company, is set to introduce the region’s first voice technology for MRO projects. The partnership was finalised in a signing ceremony during MRO Middle East and will enable TS&S to become the first aerospace company in the Middle East to use Honeywell’s Maintenance and Inspection voice system.
Under the terms of the agreement, the global software-industrial company’s voice system will lead to a Hands-Free, Eyes-Free environment that significantly reduces paper based documentation within TS&S operations by allowing mechanics to speak log their observations and diagnosis in real-time, curtailing the need for manual data entry and improving data integrity.
The Honeywell M&I voice system offers advanced voice and sound-recognition capabilities, and will integrate with TS&S’ Materials Requirement Planning MRP system, allowing for the automation of existing processes.
In November 2017, during the Dubai airshow, Mubadala Investment Company and Honeywell announced plans to establish capabilities for Honeywell Auxiliary Power Unit models in the Middle East. TS&S is a key player in the Middle East’s MRO industry. The company has existing partnerships with global original equipment manufacturers such as GE, Rolls-Royce IAE and others.
Turbine Services and Solutions is a solution and maintenance, repair and overhaul provider for gas turbines, driven equipment and aero structures. Wholly owned by the Mubadala Development Company, TS&S comprises two businesses, TS&S Industrial and TS&S Aerospace, each with distinct core competencies and specialties.
Over the years, Honeywell’s voice system has enabled organisations around the world to save $20 billion in operational costs, improve productivity by 35% and reduce operational errors by 25%.
Commenting on the partnership, Mansoor Janahi, Deputy CEO of TS&S, said: “As we grow our operations to new markets, implementing advanced technologies that enable process optimisation are critical in ensuring that we meet our growing demand to the highest compliance standards. This announcement is a testament to our growing relationship between the two companies.”
“Honeywell is proud to partner with industry leading companies such as TS&S, that are strengthening their positions by deploying the latest advances in Internet of Things technology, cloud solutions and automation to tackle operational inefficiencies and disconnects,” said Norm Gilsdorf, President, Honeywell Middle East, Russia, Turkey & Central Asia.
“We remain committed to innovation and to bringing the best hardware and software solutions to market that can help organisations streamline tasks, improve productivity, drive compliance and boost connectivity across all industries.”
