Sulzer’s BLUE BOX advanced analytics solution on the boiler feedwater and heat transfer
fluid pumps will strengthen Atlantica’s own anomaly detection capabilities and thus increase
uptime, improve reliability and eliminate operational risks of their renewable energy plants.
After successful completion, Atlantica aims to implement Sulzer’s cloud-based technology in
all its assets worldwide as a part of their enterprise-level digitalization efforts.
The latest version of Sulzer’s BLUE BOX is now capable of enhancing operational
performance of pumping systems in both the short- and long-term. This includes automated
flagging of anomalous operations detected and estimated remaining lifetimes as well as pro-active recommendations on actions by Sulzer experts aiming for a more targeted
maintenance. Atlantica will benefit from a new BLUE BOX with artificial intelligence features,
strengthening their own machine learning capabilities. With Sulzer’s help, Atlantica expects
to generate significant cost savings and higher revenue. In addition, BLUE BOX helps
understand the operational performance of the pumps, therefore providing the possibility for
proposed efficiency or output gains in the future.
The new version of BLUE BOX makes use of artificial intelligence and combines statistical
with physical models based on Sulzer’s expertise. By analyzing real-time and historical
operational data, Sulzer’s pump experts will proactively support Atlantica to make better-informed business decisions.
The award-winning BLUE BOX by Sulzer is a set of digital enabled services, leveraging
the Internet of Things for asset optimization and real-time predictive maintenance. It uses
existing pump data and machine learning to cut costs in pump operation and maintenance
