Since 2017 Howden has used digital twin technology to utilize 165 years of product expertise. A digital thread runs through Howden, supporting customers through every stage of the product lifecycle. The Uptime digital platform combines historic and live performance data to validate current performance and predict future asset health to inform maintenance planning.
