FUDIPO 18-month-review meeting in Brussels, 24-25 April ’18

After one year and a half from the project begginings, FUDIPO consortium members met last 24-25 April in Brussels to present the project’s progress and new advances to the reviewers. The meeting was divided into two different sessions, the first one celebrated the first day exclusively among the consortium members and the second one with the presence of the reviewers.

First-day presentations were about the state of the project implementation in different case studies. Demonstrator leaders presented the progression status, new advances, drawbacks and to-do actions for future months. Finally, partners were divided into different working groups during workshops to discuss about the states of different ongoing tasks to evaluate actions done and plan future actions. Consortium members took advantage of this to improve communication and plan actions if needed.

The second day, different partners presented new advances and tasks evolution to reviewers. The day started with an initial presentation of deliverables and milestone status. Then, the chief engineer presented a summary of demonstrator status and technology development. Idener gave a presentation about the dissemination activities done until date and future activities according to dissemination plan. The financial status was presented by the project coordinator and presentations about the study cases were presented by demonstrator’s leaders. Mälarenergi, Tupras, MTT, Billerudkornäs and ABB presented an overview of the tasks progression. BestWood/Fraunhofer and Tieto also presented advances in sensor and architecture development respectively. Questions and suggestions were formulated by reviewers during different partners presentations, taking note of the valuable feedbacks.

The meeting was a useful experience to catch up on different tasks status. Next meeting will be held on 17-18 October 18, but the location it is not defined yet.

 

FUDIPO 1-year-review meeting in Vienna, 17-19 October ’17

After one year since the beginning of the project, FUDIPO consortium met last 17-19 October in Vienna to present the project advances and discuss the developments in parallel sessions.

Thus, the first day, after the project coordinator opening  (see the photo below), the different developments in each study case and work packages were presented. First, IDENER presented the advances in the dissemination activities. Tupras presented the status of oil and gas study case, Mälarenergi presented the advances in the large CHP, and MTT the same in the micro CHP, Billerudkornäs gave a presentation of pulp and paper developments and finally ABB presented the advances in the WWTP study case. After, the physics-based modelling, and the status of the machine learning and sensor development were reviewed (MDH, SICS, BWD, and Fraunhofer). The day concluded with a discussion of the project improvements from reviewers comments.

During the second day a big discussion took place about hoe the FUDIPO framework and associated demonstrators will look like: What common features will have, functionalities, and to-do actions. The workshops went very well and the consortium came very close to the common/joint framework for the envisaged learning system.

The last day, TIETO did a presentation about how to do production planning, machine learning, process optimization, and use of the HMI3 framework, and finally, to end the meeting, we experienced the visualization of a full pulp and paper plant using HOLOLENS (great experience!, see a photo below).

 

FUDIPO consortium meeting in Vasteras (Sweden)

FUDIPO consortium visited Vasteras (Sweden) last 2-4th May. During this meeting, partners gathered to review all the actions done in the project up-to-date and focus on the FUDIPO study cases:

During the first day, Blerim Emruli, from RISE SICS, presented the work done in Work Package 2 and Tomas Olsson , also from RISE SICS, gave an interesting introduction to machine learning, followed by a general discussion by all partners. Finally, the general assembly gathered to discuss deliveries.

Second day began with a review of Demonstrator status and technology development, management activities and actions done and plans for dissemination activities. After, the 5 study cases were presented and followed by general discussion.

During the last day, the partners had the big opportunity to visit two of the five study cases, located in Sweden. First, partners went to ABB (plant automation systems manufacturer, among others), in Finnslätten, and attended a presentation of “the future control room” by Lena Nyberg. The second visit was to Mälarenergi power plant (see photo below), where after a presentation of the company by Elena Tomas-Aparicio, the partners walked through the waste combustion/biomass fired plants.
