Modernizing existing plants: Digitalizing with the future in mind

Watch Amit Kar, AVEVA’s Director of Strategic Pursuits, share how organizations can transform their brownfield plants by capturing a true digital replica of their facilities through Digital Twin technology.

How do you modernize plants that were built before digital data integration was even a concept?

The imperative to design, build, and operate plants more efficiently and cost-effectively will only grow stronger in the push to a net-zero industrial world. But what does it mean for the thousands of plants built 25 to 50 years ago? Is it worth overhauling brownfield plants to be digitalized to meet the changing market needs? Recent analysis from Shell notes that the cost per ton of the capacity installed during an overhaul of a brownfield facility is 20 to 50% of the cost of a brand-new plant, making digital transformation on revamps an accessible strategy to address new industry imperatives.

Our webinar, Modernizing existing plants: Digitalizing with the future in mind, examines how a Digital Twin approach can achieve efficiency and sustainability for brownfield plants through digitally integrated workflows in the cloud.

What will I learn in this webinar?

  • How to transform your existing plant to a connected, digital facility
  • How to extend a plant's lifetime and ensure continued compliance with new sustainability and safety regulation
  • How Digital Twin technology can optimize processes, future-proof your business, and train your workforce
