Atomenergomash JSC (AEM), Rosatom’s mechanical engineering division, and General Electric (GE) signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the implementation of digital technologies in manufacturing.
The parties agreed to develop strategic cooperation in the area to increase production efficiency, optimize the technological processes and reduce costs of manufacturing at Atomenergomash plants. AEM and GE will make the current evaluation of digitalization at the manufacturing premises of Rosatom mechanical engineering division. They will study the opportunities to utilize additional digital solutions through all production phases and develop a road map for digital transformation. The pilot project will be executed at Atommash in Volgodonsk.
«We are keen to apply different digital solutions in the environment and production management sector. It allows us to reduce decision-making time, to optimize machinery fleet loading, to propose new technical and product solutions for our clients, which is very important in the framework of a fast-growing order portfolio and manufacturing volume, » AEM Chief Executive Officer Andrey Nikipelov said.
«We are pleased to have an opportunity to extend our digital cooperation with Atomenergomash, one of the Russian mechanical engineering industry leaders. Modern digital technologies allow for a qualitatively new efficiency level,” said Chief Innovation Officer GE Power Maher Chebbo.
