CURRENTA Improves Sustainability Management Using Operational Data
Company that manages CHEMPARK found immediate value with TrendMiner
In addition to the infrastructure and physical resources, CURRENTA provides vocational training for Bayer, LANXESS, Covestro, and other partner companies. The service company trains around 800 people per year in more than 20 professions for the partner companies and for itself.
In a highly regulated market environment, CURRENTA is challenged with transforming in a sustainable way. Safety is a top priority. The control systems of the different facilities play a crucial role in meeting this objective. Until recently, CURRENTA lacked a way for its engineers to perform deeper analysis and forecast trends of the behavior of those control systems.
To leverage operational data and learn more about its own processes, CURRENTA deployed TrendMiner in February 2022. Full integration of the software was completed in just over six weeks. About 30 users work with the software, especially in company’s water and wastewater segment.
CURRENTA immediately saw benefits using TrendMiner. In addition to finding leaks, engineers have used the software to:
Find defects in pumps and machines quickly
See small changes in trends displayed on users’ dashboards so they can take action on deviations before problems can occur
Achieve greater plant efficiency
Reduce costs throughout production
Eliminate downtime, which in turn reduced energy-consuming processes and accelerated CURRENTA’s sustainability agenda
