HORDAGO 2: Intelligent Expert System for the efficient control and management of 4.0 furnaces through its interaction with the value chain 

The consortium formed by SIDENOR, NEMAK, GECSA, AVANGROUP and GHI supported by the agents of the RCVTI IK4-Ikerlan, University of Deusto and Sidenor I + D aims to research and develop a new intelligent expert system for efficient control and management of latest generation furnaces (Furnaces 4.0). It allows maximizing energy efficiency, productivity and availability of the equipment and its related processes, from the interaction with the entire value chain (horizontal integration).

In the case of high energy consumption industries, it is necessary to develop robust, efficient, and intelligent equipment that adapts its operation to production needs. As well as it ensures optimal performance levels during the product’s lifetime and as a result guarantees the sustainability of the business.

The advanced treatment of temperature data, based on Big Data and Artificial Intelligence technologies, in relation to data obtained not only from the furnace but also from other processes in the value chain that may condition critical variables such as the properties of the material or the non-productive periods, will allow the improvement of energy efficiency.

It should be highlighted that the HORDAGO2 project poses to achieve sustainable production processes with high energy efficiency through the development of an intelligent expert system that allows the efficient control and management of furnaces 4.0 and the entire production value chain that guarantee maximum availability. As a result, the project will yield advances in the field of reducing greenhouse gas emissions (CO2 and NOx reduction).

This project, Hordago2, has been co-financed by SPRI, Business Development Agency of the Basque Government
