Objectives
Ammonia is a becoming the Energy of Future. Ammonia is a key player to create green/blue energy and a promising way to decarbonize the energy sector. With ammonia demand on the rise Schneider Electric is leading the sustainability journey with Energy-automation-software triad, a new paradigm of energy efficiency, process electrification, innovations in automation and adoption of digital technology. Sustainability goals can be significantly boosted by implementing technology solutions in brownfield or greenfield ammonia projects. Integrating the simulation of power and process systems during the engineering phase of the project lifecycle leads to designs with optimized energy efficiencies and lower overall C02 emission. EcoStruxure™ Power & Process which deploys a unified, single team execution approach – can help deliver a 20% reduction in CapEx associated with electrical, instrumentation, and controls scope. CapEx/OpEx can be optimized by electrifying the heaters and rotating equipment to minimize energy consumption and lowering CO2 emissions. Digital tools can be implemented to monitor sustainable performance KPIs with dedicated dashboards to maximize efficiencies. A digital twin brings insight into the various factors impacting operation and it serves as a simulation environment to optimize decisions across engineering, operations, and maintenance.
