Hexagon’s developed platform will also include best practice concepts and reusable design and helps in improving understanding and transparency, as well as support in better project implementation ranging from faster on-site installation to customised optimisation across the plant lifecycle.
Hexagon’s PPM Division president Mattias Stenberg said: “We look forward to collaborating with Tetra Pak, a company that shares our commitment to drive digital and sustainable end to end solutions for the Food & Beverage industry.
