PALMOILMAGAZINE, PEKANBARU – Holding Perkebunan Nusantara III (Persero) has taken a significant step towards realizing digital palm oil plantations through a collaborative effort involving two of its subsidiaries, PT Perkebunan Nusantara V and PT Riset Perkebunan Nusantara.

These two companies are jointly developing a sensory system within their mill operations as a key initiative to boost crude palm oil (CPO) production.

The research, conducted at the Pabrik Kelapa Sawit (mill) of PTPN V in Sei Garo, Kampar District, Riau Province, is primarily focused on optimizing the Level Mass Passed to Digester in the Digester Station.

Jatmiko Santosa, Director of PT Perkebunan Nusantara V, emphasized that this research aligns with the company’s ongoing commitment to transformation and digitalization, a strategy they have pursued over the past four years.

The research that would be accomplished in November 2023 would have innovative technology package. It is hoped to minimize loss potential, escalate CPO production during the process in digester station which is the crucial element in mill.

Meanwhile Head of Plan, Sustainability and Information Technology, PTPN V, Ifri Handi Lubis told that the research is trying to adopt automatic level control system in digester station. “The goal is about to get CPO production process efficiently and effectively,” he said, as in the official statement to Palmoilmagazine.com, Thursday (19/10/2023).

In the research, many researchers were noticing the power needed in the motor and applying kill-switch in the motor and other components to set how many fresh fruit bunch (FFB) inside and out from digester kettle. The successful indicator in the research would be measured by some parameters, such as, algorithm delay, wrong algorithm, oil losses, and seed quality. The outcome of the result should escalate productivity in the mill by making digester station work optimally.

More than increasing production, the research would be potential to develop technology package that can be controlled in some distance, such as, by using devices (smart phone). If it effectively works to minimize CPO losses and economic worth, the technology would be applied in other mills of PTPN group to get new standards in palm oil industries.

The innovative things would be the same with digitalization program that PTPN V is reinforcing to fully realized e – plantation program. The integration would cover geospatial based, internet of things, enterprise resource planning (ERP Based), mobile and web apps – based.

Back to Jatmiko Santosa, he said that digitalization is unavoidable to compete and face the future challenges. It would clearly deliver the commitment of the company heading to industry 4.0. (T2)
