Digitalisation illustration


Digital solutions within industrial production can help businesses to evolve and increase productivity, improve the efficiency and traceability of supply chains, enhance overall efficiency, achieve a higher level of safety and quality, predict more accurate production volumes, and prevent unscheduled maintenance stops.

At AFRY, we continuously improve the utilization and integration of data and digital technologies to optimize project execution and ensure that engineering data (ET) is available in one single source from the early project phases through plant operations, enriched with operational data (OT). AFRY believes the solution to the digitalization dilemma demands the expertise of application solutions and, more importantly, a sound understanding of industry technologies and processes.


AFRY’s corporate mission is to accelerate the transition toward a sustainable society. The industries in which we operate are leading the way.

AFRY can aid industrial operators in modernizing and adjusting their single unit operations or fleet toward a more sustainable future. Through our capabilities in energy efficiency, water efficiency, effective resource utilization, circular business models, technical upgrading and innovation, digitalisation, environmentally friendly technologies and industrial processes, and the improvement of health and safety,
