Honeywell and Saipem to implement digital solutions for urea production technology
Honeywell and Saipem have announced a collaboration for the product development and commercialisation of a ‘Digital Twin’ as part of Saipem’s Snamprogetti urea technology.
Honeywell Forge will develop the solution to enable customers to improve the production of urea through virtual simulation of key processes. On the other side, Saipem will be responsible for the management and technical support of the digital tool. Honeywell’s digital twin solution will also be used as a virtual model to guide engineers with actionable insights into machine performance and maintenance needs in order to optimize plant production of urea. With the Honeywell Forge solution, Saipem will be able to provide real-time response on plant operational management. Also, it will allow the company to collect data for monitoring and predictive maintenance. Furthermore, with this solution, Saipem will remain in close contact with its clients, even after plant delivery, to modernize its offering as a licensor and to collect feedback regarding plant performance.
