BTG and Kuantum Papers Ltd, India have announced the start-up of an innovative program designed to support Kuantum Paper’s digitalization journey with Industry 4.0 tools as well as leading Pulp & Paper expertise and services. Named Project “Neev” (which means “foundation” in Hindi), the goal is to set the foundation for IT-OT convergence.
The BTG approach includes the implementation of dataPARCTM, BTG’s leading data visualization and management software. dataPARCTM is a user-friendly tool which enables historizing and retrieval of
data from multiple data sources as well as visualizing critical information – all in real time. Software features and functionalities include dashboards, center lining, statistical tools, downtime analysis, consumption reporting, smart alarms and many other features. Combined with the rich process expertise of BTG resources, dataPARCTM will be a cornerstone of the IT-OT convergence
planned by Kuantum Papers.
BTG will also assist Kuantum in providing data analysis for various unit operations across the mill site to prioritize advanced control initiatives with a focus on improving quality and optimizing costs.
”We are very excited to embark on our digitalization journey with BTG who are the industry leaders in this domain. In this dynamic business environment, as we scale up our operations, it is imperative that we leverage the data that is being generated and use it to make decisions that will enhance our quality, boost efficiency and drive sustainable business growth.
