NAPCON to reshape the process industry with artificial intelligence

Neste's NAPCON product family is bringing about the next industrial revolution with products that utilize modern artificial intelligence. And since this is the process industry, where operators are the true stars of any production facility, they are collaborating with the smoothest operator there is - an American actor, Mr. David Hasselhoff, who is well known as the Knight Rider with his car KITT, incorporating artificial intelligence into everyday life.

"For decades, we have been pioneers in creating solutions that bring production facilities to the present day, and our newest products are set to revolutionize the entire industry. To celebrate this, we wanted to create something similarly legendary, and what could be more suitable than having the world's smoothest operator meet with the new era of sophisticated artificial intelligence. Just like KITT, NAPCON is the smooth operator's main man", says Joanna Viileinen, Communications and Marketing Specialist, NAPCON.

Building the next industrial revolution with artificial intelligence

In practice, NAPCON solutions tap into the information network of facilities, read all inputs and optimize the facility in real-time. Everything happens in a matter of seconds, immeasurably exceeding human capabilities in optimization. Artificial intelligence is utilized to model and understand physical reactions and phenomena within a production process.

The newest addition to the NAPCON product family is the ground-breaking NAPCON Games. By applying simulations that are based on real-life phenomena, NAPCON Games are able to make the best operators even better.

In the first part of the series, NAPCON and David Hasselhoff are on the lookout for that special Industry Champion. They are challenging operators around the world to prove their skills by playing NAPCON Games Distiller, a revolutionary process operator game.

The finals of Operator World Cup 2017 will be held in Houston on 8th February 2018 between operators from Neste and MOL Group, which is a leading integrated Central & East European oil and gas corporation headquartered in Budapest, Hungary.

The Operator World Cup 2018 will start in the spring, more information will follow. To encourage all operators to join, the game will be available for a free 30-day trial.

Take a look at what happened, when David Hasselhoff and NAPCON met for the first time: Short Version Of Main Film.
