Project Description

The mission of the MORSE project is to develop model-based, predictive raw material and energy optimisation tools for the whole process route. This approach will be demonstrated in steel industry, to increase yield and product quality in production of high-strength carbon steels, stainless steels and cast steels. To do so,  a set of software tools that have partly already been validated in different process steps in steel industries will be further developed. These software prototype tools and models were developed and evaluated by six R&D partners of the consortium in collaboration with three process industry partners. Moreover, a set of new tools will be also included for achieving plant-wide optimisation. With the enhanced Morse tools companies of the process industry will be enabled to optimise the use of raw materials and energy by coordinated prediction and control of resource input and product quality along the entire process route from raw material and energy intake to customer delivery.

IDENER contributions

System specifications definition: IDENER will collaborate with the industrial users and the rest of technical ones on the definition of the systems to be developed within the project. This includes use case definitions, system requirements specification and KPI selection.

Plant-wide optimisation: IDENER is in charge of the development of a plant-wide solution uniting the developments done for the unit models so a better optimisation of the plant can be achieved. This also includes the formulation of the optimisation problem that described the plant operation and its objectives for the production.

Bussiness plan: IDENER will develop a business plan including a value chain and market analysis, SWOT analysis, competitors analysis, standardisation needs, market and regulatory barriers, business modelling, potential future capital requirements and commercialisation roadmap.

Dissemination: IDENER is the leader of the dissemination work package, which objective is to maximise the impact of MORSE results within its lifespan and maximise the impact of the developed technology. To that aim, IDENER will coordinate the development of all the MORSE dissemination material.
