ICT: award for technological innovation

Pirelli recognised by SAP for the second consecutive year

One of the companies certified in Information Communication Technology at an international level by SAP as a Centre of Competence, Pirelli has won a bronze award in the innovation category. This recognition, received for the second successive time after last year’s gold award, is even more significant, given the large number of competitors from all over the world in the 2013 edition. The principal projects that carried a fundamental weight in achieving this success are:

-Use of the SAP HANA technological platform based on the In Memory Computing approach, as an accelerator of our SAP ERP environment. This permits both the elaboration of a large quantity of data in real time, cutting elaboration times to both considerably reduce the use of informatics resources and optimising the performance of the system itself. A Pilot Project was also carried out for the use of HANA in the context of the CYBER™ FLEET project for the construction of an applicative environment oriented towards the Big Date analysis

-In the area of revision activity of informatics systems supporting the Finances zone, we are rationalising the systems in operation with the creation of a single integrated system (Financial Supply Chain Management), which is the SAP solution selected to achieve the objective of improving the control of circulating capital and cash flow

-Predisposition of an app for the CRM solution, usable at all times at all locations with the purpose of permitting the sales force to manage their point-of-sale visits programme, gather qualitative data on clients and to always have available to them the most relevant client information

-An implementation project for the Success Factor solution of soft processes within the Human Capital Management environment (Performance Management, MBO, Learning).
So Pirelli confirms itself once again as a leader in the management and use of SAP systems

In Pirelli the world’s first solar plant for the production of average temperature steam

Pirelli and the Italian Ministry of the Environment, with the collaboration of the Forum das Américas, last week presented a project for the construction of the world’s first large dimension solar plant for the onsite production of average temperature steam at the service of the manufacturing cycle of the Pirelli factory at Feira de Santana in the state of Bahia, Brazil.

The creation of the plant brings into effect a collaboration agreement signed in January 2012 by the Ministry and Pirelli for the purpose of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. It is within the context of the environmental cooperation between Italy and Brazil, which was reinforced in June 201 by an agreement signed with Italy’s Minister of the Environment and the Brazilian Minister of Energy.

Taking part in the event were the director general of sustainable development, the climate and energy of the Ministry, Corrado Clini; the consul general of Italy at San Paolo, Mauro Marsili; the director of the ICE Agency of Sao Paolo, Federico Balmas; the president of Pirelli South America, Paolo Dal Pino; and the president of Forum das Américas, Mario Garnero.

Among the project’s participants is the Milan Polytechnic, a seat of learning that has already worked with Pirelli in the field of research and that will be responsible for the preliminary study of the project, and the Gruppo Angelantoni. The Group will supply the exclusive concentrated solar thermo-dynamic technology, developed in Italy with a contribution of the country’s Ministry of the environment. In line with collaboration agreements with the Ministry of the Environment, the Italian Foreign Commerce Agency, ICE and the Brazilian organisation Forum das Américas will ensure the project is monitored during its construction.

The solar plant will be will be connected directly to the steam line used for the production of tyres and the solar catchment area will cover an area of 2,400 square metres within the Feira de Santana factory boundaries.

Maximum power of the system could reach 1.4 MW and will provide a quota of the installation’s normal thermal supply production cycle.
