Remote monitoring of production plant automation enables cost-effective and eco-friendly energy production
Adven’s Automation Manager, Olli Takala, is in charge of the electrical automation systems that keep Adven’s production plants up and running and ensure consistent energy production. Monitoring automation remotely can also help improve the efficiency and eco-friendliness of the production plants.
Olli Takala’s work centers around Adven’s automation technologies and control room functions. He is responsible for maintaining and developing the automation and remote monitoring of Adven’s production plants, and for managing the lifecycle of the systems.
“My toolkit mainly contains a wide range of maintenance programs for automation devices, but if the situation calls for it, I also know how to use the measuring instruments and hand-held tools that are used in the field of electrical automation,” says Takala.
Automation managers are required to have not only broad, cross-disciplinary expertise, but also a good ear for listening to the customer and understanding their needs.
“Our goal is to ensure that our customers have strong confidence in their collaboration and partnership with Adven,” stresses Takala.
Disturbance-free energy production is in the interest of both the customer and Adven. Automation ensures that Adven can supply its customers with energy consistently and cost-effectively.
In the process industry, increasingly tough competition and more stringent quality and environmental requirements are creating strong tensions for all players in the industry.
Takala says he can see in his job how Adven’s customers are also struggling with the typical challenges faced by the process industry. Adven’s goal is to generate a competitive advantage and cost savings for customers through automation.
Automation also helps to enhance the operations of production plants and contributes to their eco-friendliness.
“With a sufficiently high degree of automation and set controls, we can bring clear cost savings to our customers and achieve ecologically sustainable production that conserves raw materials,” Takala sums up.
