“We maintain strong links with industry, premiere academic institutions and research organisations across the world”
HYPPOS had a frontline position during the ABB Energy Industries (www.abb.com) special edition webinar on “Improving efficiency, quality and sustainability in polymer production”. HYPPOS solution architect, Symon Doe and Symeon Kassianides presented the solution and the ways in which our digital twin technology can help solve some of today’s biggest challenges in polymer production.
The webinar also featured a key contribution by Nicos Perperis from the Hellenic Petroleum Polypropelene production plant who shared experiences and benefits from the use of HYPPOS. Hellenic Petroleum (www.helpe.gr) is Hyperion’s official HYPPOS launching partner and has been using the technology in productive use at the Thessaloniki PP plant for over 18 months.

HYPPOS’ successful selection of Project EMBED-AI for funding by the Cyprus Research & Innovation Foundation
Hyperion has successfully released HYPPOS v.1.0 within the framework of the 2nd Opportunity grant from the Cyprus Research & Innovation Foundation. Drawing from the HYPPOS-Machine Learning (ML) Smart Sensors project findings, through Project EMBED-Al, Hyperion has been seeking support towards the technological upscale, optimization, demonstration, and exploitation of HYPPOS-AI as an Industry 4.0 solution. Figure 1 illustrates the HYPPOS completed projects, deliverables, and technical readiness levels:
Hyperion Group is proud to announce that its HYPPOS-related project Embed-AI was selected for funding for by the Cyprus Research & Innovation Foundation within the context of Research in Enterprises (Bridge Programmes). The main objectives of project EMBED-Al are to validate the scientific and technical targets of HYPPOS-AI prototype v.2 in an operational environment and to intensify Hyperion’s research and development in AI/ML, and innovation activities.
The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is the participating research partner of Hyperion that will support the project with through its engagement through the technology transfer of AI/ML expertise to Hyperion.
Machine Learning algorithms
Computational scientists at the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC) are developing ML algorithms with Hyperion that use vast amounts of production plant measurement data to develop models to predict critical quality parameters of the processed material based on real-time conditions. The models will be embedded in Hyperion’s solutions and serve as virtual instrumentation that will infer measurements that can be used to help isolate low quality material more efficiently and dramatically reduce waste and, thus, costs for a plant.
2nd Opportunity SME-II Grant number: OPPORTUNITY/0916/SME-II/0005, Research & Innovation Foundation, Cyprus
HYPPOS receives €700K funding from the Research & Innovation Foundation towards further development with project duration of two years (10.2018-10.2020). In June 2020, HYPPOS entered its Beta Testing phase at the state-of-the art polypropylene plant of Hellenic Petroleum petrochemicals unit in Thessaloniki, Greece which was pivotal for the success of the project for two reasons. Despite the challenges due to travel restrictions and prohibition of external visitors to plant floors imposed by COVID-19, even after the lock-down periods, we took the opportunity to develop a dedicated procedure for remote commissioning.
