September 5, 2018 - AVEVA announced Henkel AG & Co. KGaA (Henkel), an industrial and consumer goods company, has experienced measurable success moving forward its Industrial IoT and digital transformation strategy by implementing an AVEVA Energy Monitoring System.[1]

Headquartered in Düsseldorf, Germany, Henkel manages global operations across a highly distributed environment. The complexity is challenging, especially within an industry with frequent change, complex packaging and daunting sustainability targets. Henkel sought to reduce energy consumption by 30 percent in 2020 while supporting ISO 50001 certification, amongst others at its production sites. To reach this goal, Henkel needs to improve efficiency by an average of 5 to 6 percent each year.

To achieve its goals, Henkel created an energy monitoring system leveraging Wonderware, part of AVEVA’s industrial software portfolio. Implemented as a digital, Industrial IoT platform, the company now has greater access to more data to improve operational flexibility and scalability.

The results have been impressive. The company’s sustainability and energy reduction program has already achieved a 24 percent reduction in energy consumption, resulting in a €15 million reduction of energy costs and a 4.5 percent Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) improvement. These improvements were due in part to their new AVEVA solution.

“We succeeded in making global energy consumption data available to our supply chain managers in real time,” said Dr. Dirk Holbach, Corporate Senior Vice President / Global Supply Chain Laundry & Home Care at Henkel.
