Tetra Pak enhances digital plant engineering solution

Tetra Pak is collaborating with Hexagon, a provider of engineering software for the design, construction and operation of plants, to enhance its Smart Solutions Platform.

The upgraded Plant Engineering Platform will offer virtual visualisation to improve collaboration with customers throughout the engineering process, speed up delivery and implementation and enable the use of digital twin technology over the entire plant lifecycle.

The Smart Solutions Platform is Tetra Pak´s digital plant engineering solution that integrates Hexagon’s software with Tetra Pak knowledge in food production.

It will allow Tetra Pak to effectively collaborate with customers, colleagues, and suppliers globally in designing a total production plant, making it easy to simulate, evaluate and select optimal solutions for specific customer’s needs.

This development, which includes best practice concepts and reusable design, will not only enhance understanding and transparency but also ensure smoother project implementation, from faster on-site installation to customised optimisation throughout the plant lifecycle.

“Collaboration in virtual space will make us more agile in both the projects and the lifecycle work” said Marie Sandin, VP Projects, Engineering & Plant Automation, Tetra Pak.

“The advantage of choosing Hexagon is that we can visualise the complete offer, from an engineering tool suite to Industry 4.0 applications for future growth.

“And by choosing Tetra Pak, Hexagon collaborates with an important player in the food and beverage industry. The first pilot is already in development in Lund, and the global rollout will start in 2020.”
