Mission statement

Managing Aging Plants covers all topics related to keeping aging industrial facilities in good shape. Four themes have proven to function as key parts for finding, creating and managing solutions regarding the challenges posed by an aging plant.

Maintenance

Maintenance

Maintenance is at the heart of ensuring that aging assets and installations stay reliable and thus safe. Maintenance is not limited to inspection of and repair works on mechanical components
but also covers the maintenance of software systems, as well as the selection and implementation of smart maintenance.
Safety

Safety

Safety is not only the result but also the initiator of regular maintenance works, by means of RBI for example. Building and maintaining a 'safety culture' within a company is of vital importance to keep on track with inspection and maintenance works and thus ensure that aging assets stay reliable. Safety also applies to cyber security.
Materials

Materials

Knowing how polymers, concrete, or stainless steel react to humidity, heat, or other materials is vital for selecting the right material. Materials covers research, for example in the field of CUI, as well as inspection techniques such as Finite Element Analysis and Fitness for Service.
Future solutions

Future Solutions

The degree of industrial digitalisation and automation will only increase. The IIoT, or Industry 4.0, demands intelligent software and smart data analytics, to process big data effi ciently and save both time and money. 3D printing and other developing techniques are also considered future solutions.
