Nexans Partners with Schneider Electric on Digital Transformation Program to Bring Industrial 4.0 to Plant Operations

Nexans has partnered with Schneider Electric on a joint program to help accelerate the digital transformation journey into its businesses that seek clearer, richer and more actionable data as the foundation for their improved business performance, safety and flexibility.  The digitalization of Nexans factories will help to further improve the efficiency of production lines, enable predictive maintenance and reduce carbon emissions.  It will also contribute to the Group’s commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.  Customers for Nexans’s cable products and services will benefit from the program through more enhanced products availability.

Nexans decided to collaborate with Schneider Electric after the roll-out of its digital transformation program across over 115 global sites.  Applying a philosophy of “Think big. Act small. Scale fast”, yielded results including up to an 80 percent reduction in maintenance time by implementing predictive maintenance solutions as well as a 15 percent reduction in energy costs.

Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure platform helps to provide industrial enterprises with more focused insights to help better understand process and operational data and enable common cross-function, live monitoring and application data sharing.  This can lead to faster improvements in operational performance, improved quality control, reduction in energy and raw materials use, better maintenance and increased profitability.

The Nexans collaboration with Schneider commenced in October 2020 with a local diagnosis of two pilot plants in Europe.  It has focused on monitoring energy usage and predictive, condition-based maintenance.  The aim has been to identify improvement initiatives that will yield a return on investment in less than three years.  Globally, the pilot program has also audited Nexans’s current information technology and operational technology to establish the best systems to deploy for the future.

The conclusion of the two plants diagnosis, will be used to develop a long-term plan to take the digital transformation to a number of major Nexans sites worldwide.
