GE’s integrated plant controls provide a single control system across your entire plant—including the power train equipment, electrical and mechanical distribution, processes, and BOP. The result is simplified operations, with only one system to plan for maintenance, diagnostics, spare parts, logistics, alarms, databases, and training.
GE's power plant control systems can be implemented on both GE and non-GE equipment, as well as other applications outside gas power.
Increased plant performance and operability
99.9% system reliability
Lower lifecycle cost
Common hardware, software, and networks across plant
Up to 80% reduced alarms with alarm and protection rationalization
Reduced commissioning risk with plantwide simulation and validation
GE has provided integrated plant controls to customers in critical process and infrastructure sectors for more than 45 years. With installation and support networks around the world, we are one of the world’s largest OEMs for control solutions and DCS. As the OEM, we have fully validated and tested all of our gas turbine and integrated plant controls at our manufacturing and service facilities around the globe.
As a leading OEM for rotating equipment, GE has decades of experience controlling assets both big and small. We have the most advanced controls for primary assets like gas turbines, as well as solutions for a fully integrated DCS/ICS plant—so you can take advantage of future gas turbine upgrades to continue improving plant performance. That’s peace of mind that only an OEM can provide.
With a common operator interface and tools, and linked controllers, GE’s Mark VIe plant controls help ensure more efficient operations, as well as improved I&C diagnostics and integration across electrical and other smart instruments.
Compared to non-integrated controls, installation is faster and your equipment availability will increase—4% above industry standard when the DCS is combined with engineering.
General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) turned to GE to update its antiquated plant control system to the latest Mark VIe plant control system, helping return the plant assets to their original availability and reliability.

"The project was well-designed and validated with clear documentation and great support from the GE team during the entire execution—including on weekends. This was a pilot project in Libya, and based on its success, I believe it will create a lot of new Mark VIe upgrade opportunities in other Libyan plants."
