Press Release Bangkok, Thailand 16 August 2017 at 9:00 am EEST
Kim Lucander, Pöyry's Vice President for Industry Business Group, South East Asia and Australasia, shared his expertise on Green Design during the 'Nordic 4.0: Green and Innovative' solutions seminar held in Bangkok, Thailand, organised by the Department of European Affairs.
In his presentation 'Enabling Green Design through the Use of Pöyry Smart Site,' Kim talked about how Pöyry's service portfolio ably supports Thailand's defined growth platform sectors for Industry 4.0, particularly focusing on the company's use of digitalisation to increase efficiency, provide innovative solutions and support sustainability.
"Digitalisation opens new opportunities for companies to improve their efficiencies and develop their businesses, using it as their competitive advantage," said Kim Lucander. Kim shared how forward-leaning solutions, like Pöyry's Smart Site concept, are designed to cover entire sites and implemented to increase efficiency and support sustainable solutions, by minimising the use of energy and raw material resources. This innovation is, on a bigger scale, set to help address challenges that, for example, Thailand faces today such as the need for more industrial output because of population growth, significantly impacting natural resources; advanced technologies and innovations to cope with the increased use of bio-based raw materials; and progressive government legislations and mandates to address increased use of bio-fuels and other sustainable energy sources.
"Digitalisation will have an impact on everything: engineering tools, client interface, real-time data, amongst others, making intelligent solutions a crucial key in keeping up with the industry changes," Kim added.
