PowerCo’s ‘game changer’
in battery cell production
Volkswagen subsidiary PowerCo SE has announced a new ‘game-
changing’ technology for the production of its battery cells, which will
boost efficiency and sustainability. The process involves dry-coating the
cells with powder instead of applying and then drying a liquid slurry. This
reduces the process steps and saves 30% of the energy used—mostly in
the drying process—as well as 15% of the space required and millions of
euros every year. The company has signed a joint development
agreement with the German printing press manufacturer Koenig & Bauer
AG, which will supply the roller presses to powder-coat the electrodes on
an industrial scale. The new technology is planned to be used in
PowerCo’s production plants in Europe and North America.

Trane Technologies partners
to boost efficiency of industrial
heat pumps
In a continuing effort to reduce energy-related domestic GHG emissions,
one-third of which are produced by the industrial sector, Trane Technologies
has embarked on three new projects to improve the efficiency of industrial
heat pumps. These units can provide a path to the electrification of high-
temperature heating processes and offer an alternative to using fossil fuel
combustion in the production of cement, food and beverage, chemicals,
and other carbon-intensive industries.
The projects—in collaboration with the US Department of Energy (DOE) and
two universities—aim to produce an ultra-high-temperature industrial heat
pump that incorporates AI-enabled integration and process control,
dehumidification, low-cost sensors and predictive controls. These projects
have received DOE grants for the research and development of
transformational technologies that decarbonize heavy industry.
02
France’s postal service to test
Michelin’s new airless tires
Michelin has produced a radical new airless tire which promises to
eliminate concerns about air pressure and punctures. It has signed a two-
year agreement with the French postal service La Poste to test the
performance of the innovative tire to gain a better understanding of its
treadwear throughout its useful life. It plans to leverage that information
for further development of the concept. Michelin’s UPTIS prototype
replaces compressed air with an internal structure of polymer spokes that
supports the vehicle and provides a comfortable ride. In addition to
offering peace of mind to drivers and fleet owners, it has the potential to
reduce the number and frequency of tire replacements, thus limiting
waste. The tire is being developed particularly for light truck delivery
fleets, with the ultimate aim of producing a fully sustainable tire by 2050.
03
Bosch commits to using AI
in all its products by end 2023
Robert Bosch GmbH has reasserted its ambition to be a world leader in
the industrial application of artificial intelligence by advancing its goal to
incorporate AI in all its products and solutions or in their manufacture—
the 2025 deadline has been moved forward to the end of this year. Bosch
has been a front-runner for some time, having filed more than 1,000 AI
patent applications over the past five years. It has more than 300 AI
researchers and an AI training program that has been completed by more
than 25,000 employees. The company’s Hungarian plants, for example,
use AI in their manufacturing processes for data analysis to optimize
production, for optical monitoring of product quality, and for planned
maintenance of in-process equipment, among others. Generative AI has
given rise to many new use cases, including searching Bosch’s vast
research database to extract overlooked knowledge that can be re-
purposed. Chief digital officer Tanja Rückert explained: “Our primary aim
is for AI to benefit people."
04
Ferrovial forms alliance to
develop IoT- and AI-based
digital solutions
The multinational infrastructure company Ferrovial has signed a strategic
alliance with Sngular, a Spanish technology consultancy, to expand its use
of AI and the internet of things (IoT) in the development of its digital
solutions. The aim is to accelerate the digitalization and optimization of
Ferrovial’s operations leading to safe, sustainable development in
construction and infrastructure management. A key focus will be
connecting worksites, of which the company has more than 1,200 around
the world. "Productivity in the construction sector has been flat for many
years and developing sensors that turn construction into an industry 4.0
can change this," remarked Dimitris Bountolos, General Manager of
Information Systems and Innovation at Ferrovial. The two companies are
also developing efficient, autonomous sensors to monitor traffic and
“explore opportunities on the highways of the future”.
05
HD Hyundai Heavy Industries
launches its smart shipyard
HD Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., the world’s largest shipbuilder, says it
has achieved a world first by creating a digital twin of its actual shipyard.
It has installed internet of things sensors throughout its premises, both
indoors and outside, to supply a continuous flow of the real-time data
used to monitor all aspects of its construction process and inventory
status. The facility’s control center offers an at-a-glance view of each step
of the process, from groundbreaking through to vessel delivery. While
manufacturers of products such as semiconductors and domestic
appliances find it relatively easy to create digital twins of their factories,
this is much more challenging in a large mixed environment where there
are many obstacles to securing the required data. The Smart Shipyard
project is intended not only to improve the stability and productivity of the
company’s shipbuilding, but also to anticipate and pre-empt incidents that
could potentially cause injuries, delays or cost overruns.
06
Montreal gets a world-leading
automated urban train system
The rail transport company Alstom, together with its consortium
partners, has inaugurated the first stage of an automated urban rail
system which it says will revolutionize mobility in Montreal, Canada.
The project comprises a complete driverless, automated metro system
including rolling stock and signaling. It will provide a rapid service 20
hours a day, with trains arriving every four minutes at peak time. When
completed, it will be one of the world’s largest automated transport
networks with 26 stations and 67 kilometers of track. The company
says it will be a showcase for the latest in efficient digital mobility
technology.
07
Global miner Vale has partnered with Wabtec Corporation to test ammonia as
a clean alternative to the diesel that currently fuels its locomotives. The plan
is to initially maximize the energy efficiency of the world’s longest iron ore
train—330 railcars carrying 45,000 tons in Maranhão state, Brazil. Two or
three of the current three to four diesel engines will be replaced with battery-
powered FLXdrive locomotives. The electric locomotives will save a reported
25 million liters of diesel annually and reduce CO2 emissions. The batteries
will recharge every time the train brakes, giving them a greater range and
reducing recharge downtime. Then, the fuel driving the remaining non-
electric locomotives will be changed to ammonia, which emits no CO2. While
the feasibility of using ammonia will be lab-tested over the next two years, its
advantages include a longer range than diesel, a high-octane rating and an
established large-scale distribution infrastructure. The project is part of
Vale’s $4 - $6 billion investment in reducing its direct and indirect emissions.

The Industrialist: Trends & Innovations - September 2023

  • 1. Innovate Trends and innovations that matter September 2023
  • 2. Know more about the latest announcements impacting industry, from a digital-twin shipyard, an automated urban rail system in Canada, a game-changing way of manufacturing battery cells, and more.
  • 3. Industrial is a front-runner in combining human ingenuity with technology and innovation. Thomas Rinn Senior Managing Director, Global Industrial Lead, Accenture
  • 4. PowerCo’s ‘game changer’ in battery cell production Volkswagen subsidiary PowerCo SE has announced a new ‘game- changing’ technology for the production of its battery cells, which will boost efficiency and sustainability. The process involves dry-coating the cells with powder instead of applying and then drying a liquid slurry. This reduces the process steps and saves 30% of the energy used—mostly in the drying process—as well as 15% of the space required and millions of euros every year. The company has signed a joint development agreement with the German printing press manufacturer Koenig & Bauer AG, which will supply the roller presses to powder-coat the electrodes on an industrial scale. The new technology is planned to be used in PowerCo’s production plants in Europe and North America. 01
  • 5. Trane Technologies partners to boost efficiency of industrial heat pumps In a continuing effort to reduce energy-related domestic GHG emissions, one-third of which are produced by the industrial sector, Trane Technologies has embarked on three new projects to improve the efficiency of industrial heat pumps. These units can provide a path to the electrification of high- temperature heating processes and offer an alternative to using fossil fuel combustion in the production of cement, food and beverage, chemicals, and other carbon-intensive industries. The projects—in collaboration with the US Department of Energy (DOE) and two universities—aim to produce an ultra-high-temperature industrial heat pump that incorporates AI-enabled integration and process control, dehumidification, low-cost sensors and predictive controls. These projects have received DOE grants for the research and development of transformational technologies that decarbonize heavy industry. 02
  • 6. France’s postal service to test Michelin’s new airless tires Michelin has produced a radical new airless tire which promises to eliminate concerns about air pressure and punctures. It has signed a two- year agreement with the French postal service La Poste to test the performance of the innovative tire to gain a better understanding of its treadwear throughout its useful life. It plans to leverage that information for further development of the concept. Michelin’s UPTIS prototype replaces compressed air with an internal structure of polymer spokes that supports the vehicle and provides a comfortable ride. In addition to offering peace of mind to drivers and fleet owners, it has the potential to reduce the number and frequency of tire replacements, thus limiting waste. The tire is being developed particularly for light truck delivery fleets, with the ultimate aim of producing a fully sustainable tire by 2050. 03
  • 7. Bosch commits to using AI in all its products by end 2023 Robert Bosch GmbH has reasserted its ambition to be a world leader in the industrial application of artificial intelligence by advancing its goal to incorporate AI in all its products and solutions or in their manufacture— the 2025 deadline has been moved forward to the end of this year. Bosch has been a front-runner for some time, having filed more than 1,000 AI patent applications over the past five years. It has more than 300 AI researchers and an AI training program that has been completed by more than 25,000 employees. The company’s Hungarian plants, for example, use AI in their manufacturing processes for data analysis to optimize production, for optical monitoring of product quality, and for planned maintenance of in-process equipment, among others. Generative AI has given rise to many new use cases, including searching Bosch’s vast research database to extract overlooked knowledge that can be re- purposed. Chief digital officer Tanja Rückert explained: “Our primary aim is for AI to benefit people." 04
  • 8. Ferrovial forms alliance to develop IoT- and AI-based digital solutions The multinational infrastructure company Ferrovial has signed a strategic alliance with Sngular, a Spanish technology consultancy, to expand its use of AI and the internet of things (IoT) in the development of its digital solutions. The aim is to accelerate the digitalization and optimization of Ferrovial’s operations leading to safe, sustainable development in construction and infrastructure management. A key focus will be connecting worksites, of which the company has more than 1,200 around the world. "Productivity in the construction sector has been flat for many years and developing sensors that turn construction into an industry 4.0 can change this," remarked Dimitris Bountolos, General Manager of Information Systems and Innovation at Ferrovial. The two companies are also developing efficient, autonomous sensors to monitor traffic and “explore opportunities on the highways of the future”. 05
  • 9. HD Hyundai Heavy Industries launches its smart shipyard HD Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., the world’s largest shipbuilder, says it has achieved a world first by creating a digital twin of its actual shipyard. It has installed internet of things sensors throughout its premises, both indoors and outside, to supply a continuous flow of the real-time data used to monitor all aspects of its construction process and inventory status. The facility’s control center offers an at-a-glance view of each step of the process, from groundbreaking through to vessel delivery. While manufacturers of products such as semiconductors and domestic appliances find it relatively easy to create digital twins of their factories, this is much more challenging in a large mixed environment where there are many obstacles to securing the required data. The Smart Shipyard project is intended not only to improve the stability and productivity of the company’s shipbuilding, but also to anticipate and pre-empt incidents that could potentially cause injuries, delays or cost overruns. 06
  • 10. Montreal gets a world-leading automated urban train system The rail transport company Alstom, together with its consortium partners, has inaugurated the first stage of an automated urban rail system which it says will revolutionize mobility in Montreal, Canada. The project comprises a complete driverless, automated metro system including rolling stock and signaling. It will provide a rapid service 20 hours a day, with trains arriving every four minutes at peak time. When completed, it will be one of the world’s largest automated transport networks with 26 stations and 67 kilometers of track. The company says it will be a showcase for the latest in efficient digital mobility technology. 07
  • 11. Global miner Vale has partnered with Wabtec Corporation to test ammonia as a clean alternative to the diesel that currently fuels its locomotives. The plan is to initially maximize the energy efficiency of the world’s longest iron ore train—330 railcars carrying 45,000 tons in Maranhão state, Brazil. Two or three of the current three to four diesel engines will be replaced with battery- powered FLXdrive locomotives. The electric locomotives will save a reported 25 million liters of diesel annually and reduce CO2 emissions. The batteries will recharge every time the train brakes, giving them a greater range and reducing recharge downtime. Then, the fuel driving the remaining non- electric locomotives will be changed to ammonia, which emits no CO2. While the feasibility of using ammonia will be lab-tested over the next two years, its advantages include a longer range than diesel, a high-octane rating and an established large-scale distribution infrastructure. The project is part of Vale’s $4 - $6 billion investment in reducing its direct and indirect emissions. 08 Vale and Wabtec to test ammonia as diesel substitute
