In 2016 the Danish government decided to invest in the digital transformation and agreed to establish and operate ten national knowledge centres. Kold College was among the institutions appointed and received funding from the “Ministry of education” to become more digitised preparing the next generation of dairy technologists for the digital future.
Kold College chose Au2mate as their automation partner.
Au2mate is honoured and proud to be chosen as the preferred automation partner to Kold College in the process of upgrading the university’s training facilities to a more up-to-date level with the technologies and methodologies, characterising a modern production plant.
As Kold College had the desire to get as many elements from the digitalisation segment as possible integrated in the control system, it was also a very exciting process that we jointly started up medio 2019.
In close collaboration with Kold College based on wishes and interviews with key staff, Au2mate elaborated the design basis, which after a few adjustments was the foundation for the software development. The entire system was thoroughly tested in Au2mate’s simulation systems to ensure that the change-over from old to new, could be completed during the summer break and before the students would be back at school in August.
It is our experience that the close collaboration with many meetings and discussions has resulted in a very outstanding plant that simultaneously has been upgraded mechanically with new valves, components, and pasteuriser. The feedback
from the students at Kold College has also been very positive, because the training is now much more up-to-date and in line with what they encounter “in real life”.
