Valorisation of flexible energy production @ Umicore:
an Industry 4.0 case

Yazzoom has implemented a supervisory control system for Umicore that optimally regulates the electricity and steam production of their two Combined Heat and Power (CHP) units, based on forecasts of the electricity imbalance market and realtime production demands. As a true Industry 4.0 example case, the project combines predictive modelling, optimisation, cloud connectivity and live control of assets.
