GE and Vedanta announced that they have entered into a pact to install the GE’s digital smelter solution Vedanta’s aluminium plant at Jharsuguda in Odisha to significantly increase its operational efficiency and productivity. The digital twin technology and advanced data analytics being deployed are expected to substantially reduce specific power consumption at the smelter. Typically, it said a 1 per cent reduction in specific power consumption based on digital smelter solutions can save about USD 4-5 million annually in the smelter potlines alone, for every 1 million tonne per annum of aluminium production.

In addition, this digital solution is expected to improve raw material utilisation, increase smelter pot life, operational efficiency, safety and reduce wastage.
