Lowering costs and elevating operations with Asset Performance Management
SCG Chemicals is one of Asia’s largest petrochemical companies, with operations spanning upstream production of olefins to downstream production of polyethylene, polypropylene, and polyvinyl chloride.
With such a tightly integrated business, any asset failure has the potential to shut down the entire production line — with major financial repercussions. To address this and reach their goal of zero plant shutdowns, the team saw a need to harness data and build an advanced asset performance management (APM) solution.
We helped the team develop a Digital Reliability Platform (DRP) with the ability to predict equipment health, monitor performance and cut unplanned downtime through advanced maintenance. Using online and offline data, the solution visualizes plant performance and applies AI to predict maintenance.
As well as providing actionable information in less than 10 seconds, the system has standardized work execution and risk management – delivering maintenance savings of 40% and helping the team work safely and sustainably.
