Engineering the plant of the future

As industrial plant and marine players accelerate digital transformation initiatives, focus remains on driving efficiency to stay profitable and competitive amidst complex challenges and eroded margins. Meanwhile, the energy transition is continuing to accelerate as the world responds to mounting climate change challenges. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) priorities are mounting, fueled by growing regulatory requirements and shifting market demands. The need for efficient, data-driven, and green facilities is growing, increasing the pressure on the process and marine industries to transform how they engineer, build, and operate new and existing plants. Owner Operators and Engineering, Procurement and Construction companies (EPCs) now need to build clear strategies, powered by digital twins in the cloud, to empower the connected worker to drive sustainable outcomes and increase engineering efficiency and operational agility by connecting data, people, and processes. This whitepaper explores why a market that is more open to change than ever before is looking to drive resilience and embracing the plant of the future. It explores how future plants will operate, the key factors the industry must consider, and strategies to achieve the end goal of sustainable, efficient, modern plants and ships that are fit for purpose in the future.
