Air Liquide inaugurates new remote operation centre


Air Liquide has inaugurated its Smart Innovative Operations (SIO) Centre for the Southeast Asia Pacific region, located in Malaysia.

The SIO Centre, located in Kuala Lumpur, integrates, optimises and remotely controls the operations of Air Liquide’s production units, leveraging predictive analytics and digital technologies. These capabilities allow Air Liqude to better predict and accommodate changing customer needs across the region, especially regarding the supply of oxygen (O2), nitrogen (N2), argon (Ar) and hydrogen (H2).

Through big data combined with human intelligence, the workflow of each Air Liquide production unit linked to the SIO Centre is adapted in real time to the needs of each customer. The SIO Centre enables 24/7 responsiveness to customer demand, improves production-unit energy efficiency, and leverages predictive maintenance to ensure continuous facility run-time.

In the connected plants, new digital technologies are being deployed to simplify maintenance and inspection management operations. For instance, connected glasses allow operators to interface with experts located elsewhere while virtual reality-based training assist them in their daily tasks.
