Optimised process industry with cut costs and reduced emissions
Nevel Remote operation service for economies of scale and better environmental performance
High availability, uninterrupted operations and security of supply
In addition to our energy, sidestream and circular economy expertise, investment capability, and transparent way of working, we can also help our customers with better environmental performance through an optimised process. This is possible with our sophisticated digital platform. Nevel Remote operation service ensures optimised process operations and prevents unexpected problems. Nevel is the only company in the market that not only offers investment options and monitoring of utilities, but has a robust digital platform as part of the package. For customers this means lower emissions and costs.
Benefits of Nevel Remote operation service for industrial companies are:
Transparency to operations and set targets
Higher productivity based on better availability and reliability
Reduced waste and emissions
Tangible savings through reduced fuel consumption
Improved production predictability.
Increased efficiency based on digital operations
The Nevel Remote operation service was fully implemented at one of our own plants in Forssa, Finland, in 2017. The combined heat and power generation capacity of the power plant is 190 GWh. We have fully implemented the digital operations and maintenance platform with the most sophisticated available digital technology. The site is operated from our remote operation centre 24/7 and we use machine learning to optimise plant operations. Employees at the plant work normal working hours and are primarily focused on preventive maintenance work. With the Nevel Remote operations and maintenance platform we have been able to optimise the combustion process based on data and reduce residual oxygen levels, CO2 and NOX emissions. Higher energy efficiency and changes in operational model have enabled annual opex savings of EUR 600,000.
