The project further expands Emerson’s initiative to collaborate with higher education institutions and its commitment with both schools to build a globally competitive craft brewing and brewing industry in Flanders, Belgium and throughout Europe. The students and stakeholders in the region will have access to advanced automation technologies and fermentation sciences expertise, helping build a skilled workforce.
The pilot brewery, located within the laboratory, will attract and train students, academics and engineering professionals on how to use next-generation automation technologies in a safe, interactive learning environment.
Once completed, the center will feature elements of Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem portfolio of industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies used in brewing automation: a DeltaV distributed control system, Micro Motion Coriolis flow meters, Rosemount wireless measurement technology, Fisher control valves, analytics software for calculating conductivity, pH and turbidity, as well as a remote diagnostics that will allow technicians to monitor the system from Emerson’s Belgium office in Diegem, 70 kilometers away.
UGent and HOGENT are one of more than 350 institutions worldwide, from technical community colleges to four-year university programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, that Emerson has partnered with to address the skills gap in digital automation technologies. Emerson is dedicated to education, innovation and diversity by collaborating with both industry and educational institutions. Click Here for More Information
