Continuous processes in chemical industry
Achieve operational excellence and competitiveness with Digital Enterprise
Competitiveness in the petrochemical and bulk chemical industries means big upfront investments, complex industrial dispersal, high resource and energy consumption and the need for optimizing lifecycle costs. Only reliable plants are capable of achieving essential yields, thereby contributing to the success of a business.
Evolution of digital twin
The concept for the development and integrated use of a digital twin over the entire lifecycle of a
process plant. We touch various aspects and possible benefits of a digital twin realized in form of a demonstrator using the example of a steam cracker for ethylene production.
Supporting you throughout the entire lifecycleThe competitive pressures in the petrochemical and bulk chemical industries are enormous. Investments are high and plant lifecycles often span decades. With our solutions for plant optimization and process safety, also availability and performance, you can secure a competitive advantage over the long term.
Lifecycle solutions for increased availability and higher performance
Systematic efficiency improvement covers all areas and phases of a plant’s lifecycle. Innovative solutions such as the digital twin and comprehensive plant management permit the intelligent use of data in real time. The advantages are tremendous: Already during the engineering, you benefit from significantly faster project planning and high-quality results. Software tools enable seamless, also virtual commissioning, ensuring efficiency during continuous operation. They also permit the implementation of intelligent maintenance strategies, for example, with mobile or cloud applications. They thereby demonstrate how digitalization and smart data really pay off.
Seperation is used in lots of processes in chemical industries. A separation column must be precisely monitored to ensure plant availability and process accuracy throughout the lifecycle. At the same time, other processes or power consumption must be optimized – for more efficiency and security.
