TOKYO, 2017年12月13日 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) announced it has supplied Toyo Engineering Corporation (TOYO) with an IoT solution based on the industry platform Predix from General Electric Company (GE) in order to optimize fertilizer plant operations and maintenance.

This system will gather data on fertilizer plant operations and maintenance via Predix, and share data between all concerned parties in real-time, enabling the plant to be operated and maintained more efficiently.

Having entered into a comprehensive partnership with GE in the field of IoT in October 2016, with an eye to accelerating Digital Transformation, NEC has established a framework to provide companies with total support for the development, installation and maintenance of IoT solutions(1).

In line with this process, more than 100 NEC engineers are already certified in Predix, and the company plans to increase that number to approximately 500 by fiscal 2020. Moreover, NEC also uses Predix to manage large-scale projects as part of improving its global supply chain.

"This order for TOYO is part of NEC's commitment to promoting IoT solutions based on Predix while capitalizing on our track record and expertise," said Masaaki Saito, executive specialist, IoT Platform Development Division, NEC Corporation.
