In an interview with Thomas Krügers, Managing Director of Actemium Cegelec Services, the leading full-service provider in the chemical industry, this article explains the possibilities and potential of automation.
Chemical parks consist of a large number of machines, tank farms, pipelines and processes which contain sensors and record data every second. A subsequent analysis can only be effective and accurate if such a flood of data is correctly sorted and provided with compression, data pre-selection and logic on the machine.
However, it is also about expanding the digitization of systems. This is how our PlantWalk is described in detail in the article. With the mobile device, it is possible to digitize system tours and thus digitize previously manually recorded data and thus make it available in the general control system of the system and our AI for predictive maintenance and maintenance automation.
The use case at Actemium makes it clear that there is no one-size-fits-all approach in the chemical industry. Close cooperation between the system operator and the startup is necessary in order to adapt solutions and thus design the optimal product for the respective situation.
We would like to thank Chemie Technick and Thomas Krügers for the input.
