SairilaSIM

SairilaSIM is a simulation model that makes use of real-time information flows. It is EcoSairila’s digital twin. The simulation model makes it possible to analyse the existing activities in EcoSairila, as well as the changes that will arise when a new company joins the area. SairilaSIM offers the opportunity to analyse the suitability of various operating models and alternative technological solutions. The life cycle analysis derived from the simulation model produces information about the platform’s environmental impacts and the way that different functions affect emissions.
