Covestro Digital Program Includes Emerson IIoT Technologies

Feb. 2, 2018
Emerson will deliver Software-as-a-Service technologies for remote monitoring and predictive maintenance.

Using SaaS, experts in Emerson’s Innovation Center in Austin, Texas, can remotely monitor their customers’ industrial internet of things technologies. 




Polymer company Covestro selects Emerson to provide Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) technologies at nine of the chemical manufacturer’s high-utilization plants, according to Emerson. As part of the $14 million, five-year contract, Emerson will remotely monitor and maintain 40 of its DeltaV distributed control systems at Covestro plants in China, the United States and Germany. Remote teams at Emerson’s Innovation Center in Austin, Texas, will monitor and provide best practices-based maintenance strategies for local Emerson teams to implement at each Covestro plant. 

The Emerson-Covestro agreement reflects an emerging business model in industry, where manufacturers rely on a strategic supplier’s software solutions and automation expertise to monitor and execute maintenance, equipment health or energy management programs, allowing customers to focus their attention on critical operating functions that drive plant performance, according to Emerson.

This global reliability program is the result of a long-term strategic relationship between Emerson and Covestro. In 2015, the two organizations embarked on a 17-system pilot program with Emerson’s lifecycle services including Guardian Support and DeltaV System Health Monitoring SaaS solutions.
