Predictive Maintenance Software Designed for Component Life & Outage Tracking of Gas Turbines Parts

Lodestar automates the capture and presentation of historical data and calculation of remaining critical parts life into a user friendly interface. This allows users to:

  • Significantly improve critical part management.
  • Increase maintenance personnel productivity.
  • Reduce overall maintenance costs
  • Minimize outage downtime and delays.
  • Share unit information with key service personnel.

Ideal for fleets and operators with multiple gas turbines no matter the model or maker.

Lodestar provides service and maintenance managers, procurement managers, site personnel and fleet owners a very clear picture of what parts are driving upcoming outage decisions and the full range of parts repair/replace options currently available within the fleet.

The Lodestar scenario builder tool allows users to simulate different unit operating scenarios to predict the impact on parts life and to optimize outage planning decisions.
