FUDIPO meeting in Izmit (Turkey), 14-15 October 2019

In recent days, the FUDIPO consortium met in Izmit, a city near Istanbul, in Turkey, to review the development of the project, the financial report, comment on the different experiences of the case studies, and decide future actions.

Thus, during the first day, we present the current status of the different use cases and the implementation of the sensors. The day continued with a visit to the Tupras oil refinery, especially to the control room. Finally, the general assembly was held, and we were able to enjoy a delicious dinner at the Tupras facilities.

During the second day the conclusions of the Chief Engineer were presented, and the actions carried out in communication and dissemination were emphasized. To highlight, a new joint event is planned next March 2020, where different SPIRE projects will be invited and results will be presented. After that, two workshops were held in parallel. One to see the necessary steps for implementation, and the second to see how to measure the results of the integration. With this, our coordinator Erik Dahlquist closed the meeting and we returned home with the batteries charged to continue moving forward in the project.

We will tell you more soon! If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us!

FUDIPO at SPIRE Industry 4.0 – Brussels, 1-2 October 2018

FUDIPO was present in the SPIRE workshops that took place at the beginning of October. Once again we did not miss the opportunity to present the progress in the FUDIPO project, presenting a poster during both sessions and discussing the project strategies.

During the workshop about Digital Technologies in Process Industry on the 1st of October, we confirmed that the optimisation and control tasks which are in current development in FUDIPO are completely aligned with the needs of a Process Industry. It is currently demanding stronger Digitalization of the production processes and innovations in the optimization methods, searching for more efficiency in the production, in the use of raw materials and in energy consumption and reduction of CO2 emissions.

Those objectives will be reinforced and extended in the SPIRE vision for 2050 of an “integrated and digital European process industry fostering a ‘well below 2ºC’ scenario and a fully circular future for our planet and society”. Once again, the main goals of FUDIPO project share in many aspects the value proposition of the future SPIRE 2050 and we keep working to make them come true.
