Baker Hughes and Yokogawa Demonstrate Success with Customer POC

In 2018, Baker Hughes and Yokogawa signed an MOU to provide advanced valve diagnostics and anomaly detection as part of Yokogawa’s Centum system. Since this time, the collaboration has provided enhancements to both commercial and technical capabilities of the combined businesses. To demonstrate the capabilities, the combined Baker Hughes and Yokogawa teams have worked with JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy to identify a POC (Proof of Concept) pilot plants site to be used as the initial launch of the platforms. Today, the partnership celebrate a milestone achievement as JXTG Energy has begun to leverage the extended benefits of the technologies, using VLM (Valve Lifecycle Management) services and software to optimize their plant turnaround by reducing downtime and labor cost associated with valve maintenance.

“Our partnership with Yokogawa has been strong for many years.”, said Taric Kabir, Senior Product Manager at Baker Hughes. “Jointly going to market together as a combined solution provider is a major step that gives our customers a chance to leverage a great combined portfolio of valves, positioners, sensors, and DCS capability. We have many customers that are leveraging both Baker Hughes technology, and Yokogawa technology… now its time to deliver added benefits of the combined synergies.”

Baker Hughes continues to develop more advance technologies, partnerships and optimization algorithms to unlock greater benefits to the users of our digital platforms. As part of the Baker Hughes portfolio of Fullstream solutions, Masoneilan control valves and VLM software offer a complimentary service that is field validated and proven as best in class. Only the VLM holistic maintenance approach that includes a total lifecycle solution can ensure our customers they can claim Masoneilan has their “Process Controlled”.
