specially for operators of medium-sized industrial plants, our modular digitalization solution dubbed Bilfinger Connected Asset Performance (BCAP) offers a simple and secure way to harness digitalization. The heart of the solution is a cloudbased platform where all the data from an industrial plant’s engineering, operations and maintenance areas is collected.
For instance, this includes data from production planning as well as from sensors that continually monitor the condition of individual components. Linking and analyzing this data delivers new and improved insights into managing and operating industrial plants. This makes it possible to identify potential disruptions earlier and more reliably as well as reduce unplanned downtime. At the same time, the effectiveness of the entire plant gets a significant boost.
Digitalization projects start with a digital maturity assessment that determines the company’s current level of and potential for digitalization. This acts as the springboard to developing a strategy and specific projects aimed at leveraging potential in the form of predefined software and services from the BCAP solutions store or bespoke applications. Since the time investment is only a few months, it is not long before customers benefit from the added value.
Additionally, BCAP offers a wealth of soft benefits, such as identifying blind spots in order to initiate necessary strategy adjustments. Processes run more smoothly and reliably. Last but not least, a compelling digitalization concept reflects positively on a company’s image and helps position it as an attractive employer.

Bilfinger and deep-tech start-up Akselos have signed a memorandum of understanding with a view to implementing Akselos’ digital twin technology in the offshore and processing industries. The software facilitates the near-real-time assessment of an asset’s integrity status. That allows potential failures to be predicted before they occur.
