‘Hoekx en Derissen’ becomes ‘Link Intelligence’

Repackaged to perfection

In almost every factory, opportunities are there for the taking. Whether you seize those opportunities depends on how you look at them and what you do with them. Over a twelve-year period, the demand for our expertise and approach has grown tremendously. Along the way, you meet individuals with a similar view of people, processes and life, and new collaborations arise.

This is how ‘Link Intelligence’ came about: seasoned experts who can achieve even more for a factory together than alone. With the creation of Link Intelligence, the name Hoekx and Derissen will gradually disappear. Fons Hoekx and Bas Derissen remain in the company, of course, along with associates Rudi Spierings and Paul van den Akker. The focus remains the same: jointly finding, realising and guaranteeing the highest possible performance in a factory, in terms of both quality and quantity.

Biomass for Steam Generation | Lippstadt

Even when the tide is high, operations must be feasible and affordable. FrieslandCampina Kievit GmbH was looking for a sustainable alternative to the use of gas in steam generation in Lippstadt. But what requirements must such an alternative meet? After inventory, we wrote the User Requirement Specification: what is there now, where do we want to go and what requirements do we set? Based on this, we assessed the proposals from several suppliers. We looked at various scenarios and calculated the best proposals: what investment is required, what is the operational impact of each choice and what is the payback period?

Based on this, we came up with a business case for the construction of a biomass steam power plant. This allows us to reduce CO2 emissions by no less than 88%, 10,500 tons per year. Unlike in the Netherlands, there is a surplus of waste wood in Germany, so this is an actual emission reduction. All permit processes have been completed, but a subsidy application is on hold due to the German stop on government spending. With the green light, construction can start and the plant will ultimately run on (local) residual wood and no longer on gas or oil.

We’re moving!

Link Intelligence is doing well. Companies keep coming to us, seeking solutions for complex issues, all aimed at preserving, optimizing, or expanding quality and quantity in a factory. Recently, we’ve also started providing CMDB analyses for OT Equipment. This involves mapping out the status of each object within its lifecycle. It provides you with much better control over your assets and processes. Our services and solutions have been so well-received that we’re outgrowing our current space. That’s why we’ll be moving to a larger facility soon, which is also much more accessible. Starting in early 2024, we’ll be located in Heesch. Of course, we’ll keep our relationships informed about this!”

New lactose transport in accordance with the highest standards | Veghel

FrieslandCampina Veghel is one of the largest lactose plants in the world. In order to guarantee maximum output 24/7 and to continue to meet the highest (quality) standards, a decision was made to replace the lactose transport system. All the lactose powder produced is transported from the production building to the packaging plant via a 140-metre-long and virtually maintenance-free pipe system. From there, the powder is packaged into various packaging units. Because lactose is quite sticky, when it is transported in long process pipelines, there is always a real risk that they will become clogged. Thanks to high-tech engineering and extensive testing, we were able to design a transport system that ensures that the pipelines do not become clogged. During the project, production could not be suspended for long, if at all. A ‘brownfield’ approach and delivery in a factory where every square metre was already being utilised. Nevertheless, the project was successful: both the process and the commissioning went smoothly.
