Lowering costs and increasing reliability with AVEVA™ 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) and digital reliability platform that would help drive their digital transformation.
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.
A number of AVEVA solutions are deployed in the platform. With AVEVA™ Predictive Analytics, the team is able to apply artificial intelligence and detect performance anomalies in real-time, using online and offline data collected through AVEVA™ Asset Information Management. At the same time, AVEVA™ Enterprise Asset Management improves how SCG teams contextualize and connect with their data to reduce human error and optimize plant efficiency.
As well as providing actionable information in less than 10 seconds, the cloud-based system has standardized work execution and risk management – delivering maintenance savings of 40% and helping the team work safely and sustainably.
Combining AI, predictive analytics, and machine learning on AVEVA™ Connect, our industrial cloud platform, the DRP has helped SCG Chemicals achieve industry-leading standards in plant efficiency and asset reliability. Due to its success, the platform has been scaled up across all 15 of their plants around the world.
