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!

Our colleague Carlos Leyva from IDENER presents FUDIPO in Turin

MONSOON SPIRE H2020 project organised its final conference as a joint event in Turin last week. The title of this conference was “Digitized Operations for Sustainable Process Industries. A pathway towards industry 4.0”, and some related SPIRE events were invited to present the project objectives and current status.

Thus, our colleague Carlos Leyva from IDENER was invited to briefly present the status on our demonstrators, and also to present a poster in an elevator-pitch session. This conference was a good point for discussions about the digitalisation in industries and future needed actions.

Please, have a look at the poster presented in the dissemination material section of our webpage.

The next joint event will be prepared by FUDIPO and COCOP and will include a session about energy efficiency. We will post more information soon.

Our colleague Moksadur Rahman presents his licentiate defence next 30th October

Next 30th October is an important day for FUDIPO, as our colleague Moksadur Rahman, who has been intensively working on the project will present his licentiate defence in Energy and environmental engineering based on the work done. The title of this defence is “Towards a learning system for process and energy industry” and is focused on the use of different process models, soft-sensors and optimization techniques to improve the control, diagnostics and decision support for the process and energy industry. Thereby, a generic architecture for optimal control, diagnostics and decision support system, referred to as a learning system, is proposed in his research.
