The TH Group is a participant of the international conference "Prospects for infrastructure transformation of the petrochemical industry".
A meeting of specialists from the TH Group company and representatives from the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and the Russian Chemists Union took place following the International Innovation Forum "Russian Industrialist", during which negotiations with the Director of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Chimvest Research and Technology Centre" V. K. Savchuk were held on the companies' stand.
A round table on the "Digitalisation of the Chemicals Industry: challenges and prospects" was held on 20th November 2019 in the Analytical Centre affiliated to the Government of the Russian Federation in the framework of the conference "Prospects for Infrastructure Transformation of the Chemical and Petrochemical Industry". Igor Lyashkov, Deputy Director of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Chimvest Research and Technology Centre", presided over the event.
Representatives of the industry's manufacturing companies, experts from leading Russian companies in software development, including those for chemical industries all attended the conference. Among those participating were Mariia Sergeevna Ivanova, Vice President of the Russian Chemists Union, and Mikhail Nikolaevich Ermolovich, representative of the Expert Council of the State Duma Committee on Energy.
Andrey Orlov, Director for Development of the Reliability Technologies Group of Companies, participated in the discussion regarding the directions and tools for increasing the efficiency of oil and gas chemical companies within the framework of digital transformation. One of these directions is the application of unmanned technologies to monitor technological processes and to estimate the condition of production complexes. The unique invention of the drone inspector by the group of companies is designed to inspect various industries' equipment and production infrastructure. The model is equipped with a special collision protection system, making it safe for the operator and the equipment itself. The design features allow for the drone to function in conditions of poor light and inaccessible and dangerous places. The use of such technologies at industrial enterprises will consequently lead to the preservation of working resources and will eliminate risks to employees' lives and well-being.
According to the results of the round table, all experts confirmed that the digitalisation of the chemicals industry in Russia has got off to a very good start, therefore providing industrial enterprises plenty of opportunities to develop new products based on artificial intelligence, VR-systems, and the possibility to improve existing technologies.
