Total has announced that it is to roll out TrendMiner software across its Refining & Chemicals segments.
TrendMiner is a self-service analytics business solution, which facilitates advanced diagnoses and troubleshooting for reliability, mechanical and process engineers centrally and locally.
The roll-out follows successful pilots at the Total Antwerp Platform in Belgium. As a certified original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partner of OSIsoft, the capabilities of the TrendMiner software allowed Total Refining & Chemicals’ activities to leverage the data infrastructure of OSIsoft to deliver convincing results in improving the effectiveness of its overall equipment.
Bert Baeck, CEO and Founder of TrendMiner, said: “We are very pleased with the results which have been demonstrated […] Total is a forward-thinking industry leader and a pioneer in using TrendMiner at a large scale; we hope that their example will inspire others to adopt a self-service approach to industrial process analytics.”
Total believes that the TrendMiner software will allow process and mechanical engineers and operators to more easily identify trends in their processes, look for similar trends in the past, fingerprint operating windows, monitor behaviour, send notifications to engineering or control room staff and predict deviations in live processes.
Total said that it selected TrendMiner due to its transparency, efficiency and ease of use.
