Honeywell, Saipem Create Digital Twin For Urea Technology

Nov. 9, 2021
Saipem will adopt Honeywell Forge software to create a digital twin for its urea technology to support clients with virtual simulations to improve their production targets.

Honeywell and Saipem sign an agreement for product development and commercialization of a “digital twin” as part of Saipem's Snamprogetti urea technology. The offering will be developed on Honeywell Forge, Honeywell’s enterprise performance management product to enable customers to improve the production of urea through virtual simulation of key processes.

The new service will be commercialized with Saipem’s brand and powered by Honeywell Forge. Saipem will be responsible for the management and technical support of the digital tool, involving Honeywell on a demand basis. Honeywell’s digital twin offering will also be used as a virtual model to guide engineers with actionable insights into machine performance and maintenance needs in order to optimize plant production of urea.

The Honeywell Forge offering will reportedly enable Saipem to provide real-time response on plant operational management, to collect data for monitoring and predictive maintenance and to contribute to the optimization of its clients’ operations, according to the companies. The offering will allow Saipem to remain in close contact with its clients, even after plant delivery, to modernize its offering as a licensor and to collect feedback regarding plant performance.
