The upgraded Plant Engineering Platform will use virtualization for greater transparency and smoother project implementation, from faster on-site installation to customized optimization, enabling digital twin technology over the entire plant lifecycle.
“With Tetra Pak´s Smart Solutions Platform it will be easier for customers to do business with us,” said Marie Sandin, VP projects, engineering & plant automation, Tetra Pak.
“Collaboration in virtual space will make us more agile in both the projects and the lifecycle work.
"The development will be made in a number of internal pilots in 2020, and the first wave has now started. It involves staff from both Tetra Pak and Hexagon’s central organizations and market organizations. At the end of 2020, the plan is to apply the platform to a customer project, which will be subject to evaluation to achieve correct and smooth implementation of the technologies."
She added with Hexagon it can visualise the complete offer, from an engineering tool suite to Industry 4.0 applications for future growth.
“We look forward to collaborating with Tetra Pak, a company that shares our commitment to drive digital and sustainable end to end solutions for the Food & Beverage industry,” said Mattias Stenberg, president, Hexagon’s PPM Division.
