Circular Manufacturing in Energy Industry: An assessment of circular business model potential

Reference number
Coordinator KUNGLIGA TEKNISKA HÖGSKOLAN - Industriell produktion
Funding from Vinnova SEK 493 358
Project duration November 2017 - May 2018
Status Completed
Venture The strategic innovation programme for Production2030
Call 2017-02880-en

Purpose and goal

1. Implementation potential of gas turbine functional sales model, i.e. ‘Gas turbine-as-service’ as a leverage in transition towards circular economy has been assessed. 2. The existing circular manufacturing system simulation tool and Product Multiple Lifecycle Management (PMLM) tool has been adapted to fit large industrial products which led to further development of the tools.

Expected results and effects

A simulation tool is accessible which can be used to explore different business scenarios in case of complex high-tech product. The tool shows the dependencies between design efforts and lifecycle costing. The tools provided following results: 1. Economic potential of selling "Gas Turbine-as-Service’ as a new business model 2. A data model for better control over lifecycle of assets. Besides, methods and tools have been tested in a complex industrial case.

Planned approach and implementation

The project progressed and ended as per the plan where all parties collaborated and supported the activities as defined in the proposal. Following main tasks have been undertaken during the project: 1. The case product and existing business model was studied to understand the product structure as well as to define the project scope. 2. Simulation model was adapted to fit the scope, data was collected and final model was presented. 3. The PMLM tool is populated with the gas turbine data as per the scope of the project.
