Kellogg Reduces Energy Footprint
Learn how Kellogg's uses the PI System to achieve $3.3 million in energy savings.
New Tools for Energy Problems
See how UC Berkeley & Singapore's National Research Foundation use new tools to solve energy problems.
Water loss is nearly always the result of a leaky pipe somewhere in the system. The challenge is to find the location of the leak, and to do so quickly with minimum staff time, before significant water is wasted. Halifax Water used its already installed PI System to support water leakage reduction by 40 million litres per day, saving more than C$600,000 on an annual basis.
For over 50 years, the IBM Burlington facility has been producing semiconductors in Burlington, Vermont. Committed to continuously evolving their operations to save money and improve efficiency, IBM Burlington installed the PI System in the 1990s to help improve organizational communication. Since then, IBM Burlington has leverage the PI System to have achieve dramatic results from increasing manufacturing capability to reducing water usage by 27% to saving millions in yearly expenses.
With 55,000 employees and more than $21 billion in annual sales, International Paper is the largest pulp and paper company in the world. Along with massive scale comes massive data: The company is tracking almost two million active data points from 37 facilities around the world. International Paper's PI System is a data-rich resource that can be mined for insight. By using PI System tools to take a closer look at how they were collecting and organizing that data, company engineers were able to slash their data processing time by more than 80%, making a new company-wide machine learning initiative faster and more feasible.
Since 1972, Itochu Techno-Solutions Corporation has been an independent systems integrator and service provider serving a broad range of industries in Japan. At the OSIsoft's 2015 Users Conference, Mr. Hisashi Fukuda, General Manager of Itochu Techno-Solutions Corporation, presented how OSIsoft's PI System has enabled Itochu to use data-driven approaches to deliver services across Japan's dynamic energy market. Furthermore, OSIsoft's Connected Services has enabled Itochu to transform their business model by connecting customers on both ends of the energy supply-demand market using their unique cloud-based service.
Founded in 1997, JiangSu Nuclear Corporation, Ltd ("Jiangsu Nuclear") is responsible for the construction, commercial operation, and management of the Tianwan nuclear power station. Currently, the 2 nuclear generator units from phase 1 are in commercial operation, construction of units No.3 and No.4 from phase 2 is in progress, and construction of units No.5 and No.6 from phase 3 has commenced. Yang Qiang, Senior Engineer from Jiangsu Nuclear introduced how they use the PI System is used to manage data and achieve business intelligence in a large nuclear power plant at the 2016 OSIsoft China Users Conference.
The Kellogg Company's food products are a staple in kitchens in over 180 countries. With over $14 billion in annual sales, Kellogg's produces many household names, such as Keebler, Pop Tarts, and Eggo Waffles. In 2005, Kellogg's embarked on a project to reduce its energy footprint while improving their bottom line. By leveraging their previously installed PI System, Kellogg used operational data to reduce energy consumption in its Battle Creek plant.
