Hanwha Total and LG Uplus Team for Smart Petrochemical Production

According to Pulse by Maeil Business News Korea,

Hanwha Total said on Wednesday it has signed a memorandum of understanding with LG Uplus to enhance computing applications on production at its petrochemical plant in South Chungcheong Province.

Hanwha Total introduced the corporate LTE network for the first time in Korea’s petrochemical industry last year, paving the way for a planned smart plant project.

Hanwha Total is already utilizing the network to use explosion proof smartphones, install mobile CCTVs and inspect facilities with a drone.

“The MOU will take us to a new level in the scope of utilizing mobile communication systems inside the plant,” said a Hanwha Total spokesperson.

The company plans to introduce IoT technology to ensure real-time monitoring of flow rate measurement, gas detection, pump operation and other challenging tasks for human workers.

Hanwha Total now owned by Hanwha Group was established as a 50-50 joint venture between Samsung Group and France’s Total in 2003. It was integrated into Hanwha Group in April 2015.

Hanwha Total is in the process of a 900 billion won ($805 million) capex program to add 310,000 tons of ethylene, 130,000 tons of propylene and 400,000 tons of polypropylene at its Daisan plant by next year.
