ABSTRACT

A Spanish research centre is preparing a proposal for the call H2020 DT-FoF-06-2019 aimed to develop, test, demonstrate and market uptake of an innovative solution for extending the lifespan of large industrial equipment at least a 20%, increasing the return on investment from major machinery. The partner sought is a (big, European) industry that uses large industrial equipment and its role in the project will be to pilot the developed solution.


FULL DESCRIPTION

A Spanish research centre is preparing a proposal for the call: H2020 Refurbishment and re-manufacturing of large industrial equipment (DT-FoF-06-2019).

The problem to be solved lies on the risk of breakdown of critical large industrial equipment. This may cause a very expensive unexpected stop in the production processes. Fatal errors may cause an extremely expensive replacement before the end of the possible lifespan of the machine.

To successfully address the above needs, the project will focus on two complementary areas: the condition monitoring, fault diagnosis and prognosis and the impact of refurbishment on large electrical machinery.

The project objective is the development, testing, demonstration and market uptake of an innovative solution for extending the lifespan of large industrial equipment at least a 20%, increasing the return on investment from major machinery. This will be achieved through a combination of condition monitoring intelligence enabling fault diagnosis and prognosis, and refurbishment on large industrial equipment.

The partner sought is a (big, European) industry that uses large industrial equipment, namely from the chemical, petrochemical, machinery, paper, pulp, food, metal, textile, electric power generation, water or cement sector. Their role is piloting the proposed solution: an integrated condition monitoring system based on non-invasive sensors and software capable of predicting errors and smartly plan for necessary refurbishments, reducing dramatically unexpected production stops and enlarging the lifespan of this equipment before full replacement. This translates into important savings for industries. Against current state-of-the-art solutions, EULIE will integrate currently fragmented diagnosis techniques and a non-invasive set-up minimizing impact on industrial processes. Moreover, a part of necessary refurbishment costs might be included in the project budget.

The consortium is almost complete, and it includes different profiles: large industrial equipment manufacturers, owners, repair workshops, digitalization companies, knowledge centres and European networks are already confirmed.

- Official deadline for the call: February 21st 2019
- Deadline for EoIs: January 25th 2019
- Anticipated duration of the project: 42 months


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: Industries possessing large industrial equipment (>150kW of power) willing to pilot the H2020 project solution in their facilities.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: - Type of partner sought: a (big, European) industry that uses large industrial equipment
- Sectors of activity of the partner: chemical, petrochemical, machinery, paper, pulp, food, metal, textile, electric power generation, water or cement sector
- Role of the partner sought: piloting the proposed solution, an integrated condition monitoring system based on non-invasive sensors and software capable of predicting errors and smartly plan for necessary refurbishments, reducing dramatically unexpected production stops and enlarging the lifespan of this equipment before full replacement
- Type of agreement: research agreement within a consortium for a H2020 proposal


Advantages & innovations:

The main advantages of the developed solution within the project will be:
- Integration of fragmented diagnosis techniques into a comprehensive solution
- Non-invasive methodology for setting up sensors in large industrial equipment for asset owners
- Targeted fault identification techniques saving time to repair workshops
