Solvay enhances digital transformation with data analytics platform
Solvay and SAS have signed an agreement to enhance Solvay’s digital transformation using advanced data analytics. This will contribute significantly to optimizing production performance.
This collaboration will first apply to Solvay’s largest production sites. Advanced analytics on real-time and historical data will help to better understand the relationship between production parameters and enhance asset performance. That should increase daily productivity or reduce raw material consumption.
Solvay is starting the process of deploying advanced data analytics solutions to unlock value in new and smart ways, in particular through capacity increase, process optimization, energy consumption reduction, and yield increase.
“Solvay’s collaboration with SAS helps us to deploy advanced data analytics solutions in a coherent and efficient way adding value for the business. Leveraging a single platform accelerates development and systematic deployment across our industrial network with quicker business impact”, said Alain Faessler, Solvay Group General Manager for Industrial.
“Our collaboration started off with a very pragmatic approach combining engineering knowledge and data science expertise, creating immediate benefit for Solvay. This demonstrates the strength of the SAS platform. Exploration, but even more important, development/design of models allowing engineers and operators to change the way they work. Our teams look forward to supporting Solvay in this process”, says Jeroen Van Godtsenhoven, Managing Director SAS Belgium & Luxembourg.
