Description

The next talk in the Tech Talk Series will focus on new technology to improve equipment reliability and plant efficiency for process industries.

Andy Normand (CEng MIMechE) leads Encora Energy's partnership with UptimeAI who provide artificial intelligence for improvement of equipment reliability and process efficiency in process plants. 

Andy started with BP in oil refining, upstream and R&D and has worked in reliability and optimisation of process plants for over 17 years. He has gone on to provide consulting across 6 continents to companies ranging from large national energy companies to independent plants in oil and gas, chemicals and power industries assisting teams from board level to plant floor to improve the ways they manage equipment reliability. As industries have changed over the years this has increasingly focused on how the correct application of new technology can be used by plant teams to make real benefits to plant operations and maintenance.

Jag Gattu is the founder and CEO of UptimeAI, which uses artificial intelligence (“AI”) to improve equipment reliability and plant efficiency for process industries. They offer the first “virtual expert” for manufacturing that can learn and explain operational challenges like a human but can scale to millions of sensors with powerful computing. Jag is a passionate advocate of the use of analytics to solve complex industrial challenges. He brings two decades of experience in hands-on industrial analytics and track record of building innovative IIoT solutions. Before starting UptimeAI, Jag was with GE for 7 years managing smart instruments and predictive maintenance solutions. During this time, he worked with companies such as BP, Exxon, SABIC, ROSNEFT, and Egypt Ministry of Petroleum. Prior to GE, he advised and developed analytics applications for the likes of US Airforce, Caterpillar, Haliburton, and Marathon focusing on diagnostics. Jag loves to dig into the technology and has over half a dozen patents in the application of data analytics for industrial applications. He has a mechanical engineering degree from IIT-Madras in India, Masters from Michigan State, and a business degree from Kellogg School of Management.
