  • 4 major organisations (Northern Gas Networks, Celsa Steel, Yusen Logistics and Siemens) are now participating in Digital Catapult’s 3-month IoT Discovery Programme

 

  • The programme will help improve the organisations’ understanding of the value of the Internet of Things, and how to deploy it successfully to drive efficiencies in existing processes, or unearth new and existing business models – delivering real organisational change

 

  • The IoT Discovery Programmewill offer the organisations a number of 1-2-1 and cross-cohort classroom-based sessions to help them uncover business challenges, learn how to invest in the technology effectively and share cross-sectoral learnings

QUOTES FROM PARTICIPATING ORGANISATIONS:

Northern Gas Networks – working with Digital Catapult to develop technical and financial funding strategies, businesses cases and support supply chain and innovator engagement

Richard Hynes-Cooper, Head of Innovation at Northern Gas Networks:

“We have been engaging with the Digital Catapult to pull in some of the IoT work we are doing and align it to the collective strategies between our internal departments. Specifically, 3iG [IT], innovation and the broader energy system transformation work that is under way at this time.

Our view is that the programme will help drive clarity of longer-term strategic requirements and also further support the potential innovation work areas in this space, particularly relating to the Energy Systems Transition and digital transformation activity.”

Celsa Steel – advancing activity around the concept of ‘circular’ steel (energy and materials efficiency) through collaboration, knowledge sharing and developing relationships across industry

Eoin Bailey, UK Innovation Manager at Celsa UK, said:

“Due to the long lifespan of steel making capital equipment and operations, there is often a delay in modernisation and a gap in the skills and knowledge required to successfully implement Internet of Things applications. 

“Participation in the IoT Discovery Programme is key in supporting Celsa in upskilling the engineering teams, aligning potential IoT applications to our current processes, implementation and optimisation of solutions, knowledge transfer for collaboration opportunities and funding application procedures.”    

Yusen Logistics – working to develop a new and improved digital platform to manage the end-to-end logistics service provided to customers in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sector

Leo Pickford, Head Of Business Change at Yusen Logistics (UK) Ltd said:

 “We are excited to be working with Digital Catapult and taking part in the IoT Discovery Programme to help us think through our digitisation journey and understand how we can leverage the latest IoT technology to enhance our operations.”

Siemens – supplying IoT solutions to customers and deploying them in its UK manufacturing factories – to drive unparalleled productivity and operational efficiency across the entire value chain

Imran Agha & Carl German, Strategic Leads for Innovation in Products & Process (Siemens Congleton), said: 

“This programme provides us with collaborative insights for our staff in product development, supply chain management, customer services and finance to accelerate awareness of IoT opportunities, business case development and ultimately champion deployment of these solutions across our business”
