Chemical Industry

Driving competitiveness and sustainability

The biggest challenge is remaining competitive. And the crux of this: better operational efficiency and flexibility, enhanced productivity performance, improved plant availability, and the analytic use of intelligent plant data to inform current and future strategic decision-making. This future is bright – especially when it's not overshadowed by limitations to brownfield sites.

Chemicals 4.0

What drives the industry, drives us – we make it happen!

The digital transformation is picking up speed. Over the entire lifecycle of your plant, data and the digital twin play a decisive role to take advantage of the benefits and potential of Industry 4.0. If all available data are collected and correctly correlated, they form the basis necessary for decisions and interventions at the operational level. When IoT and artificial intelligence merge smoothly, they can react quicker and more flexibly to dynamic market changes and shifts in customer needs. At the same time, we always keep an eye on investment protection and total cost of ownership with individualized and sustainable solutions:

  • A smarter plant start, faster engineering and commissioning.
  • High productivity and uptime, safe and flexible production but also sustainability and security over long plant lifecycles to optimize your operations further and further.
  • Maximizing asset uptime, also by using big data analytics.
