No two plants are the same. The requirements for modernization on the part of the operator are correspondingly different, such as the maintenance concept or the planned plant operating time. A modernized process control system is ultimately the prerequisite for individual, flexible lifecycle service contracts, optimally tailored to the requirements of the plant's lifecycle.
Market requirements and customer needs
Typically, DCS customers expect a holistic and customized upgrade approach that takes into account both the different system configuration requirements and the economic specifications, such as
- Use of current and future DCS innovations
- Reduction of maintenance costs
- Ensuring serviceability
- Long-term investment protection
- Use of current IT security standards
