We knew that severe weather was coming, so we were on the StormGeo website watching the forecast develop. At the same time, we were on the phone with their senior meteorologist requesting updates for our safety department.Cicero Bevelle, Safety Specialist

Weather Intelligence for Manufacturing
Severe weather can have huge negative impacts on production. StormGeo's suite of weather intelligence and decision support solutions provide manufacturers with actionable plans to minimize risk and optimize production in the face of extreme weather events.
The largest U.S. aluminum manufacturer has a plant in South Texas that extracts aluminum from bauxite. This specialized, multi-step process requires chemicals to be pumped through lines located throughout the facility, and is extremely sensitive to cold weather. During the winter months, the facility monitors external temperatures and will inject antifreeze to keep the product from freezing, which would turn it into a cement-like substance that permanently blocks the lines. In the event the product does freeze, the manufacturer has to take apart the entire facility to fix the tubes that have been blocked—a shutdown that could take days, weeks or even months to fix, leading to loss of productivity and revenue.
StormGeo provides this aluminum manufacturer with seven-day forecasts, broken down hour-by-hour, with weather and temperature conditions. In the event of a winter weather advisory, StormGeo alerts the facility of the upcoming weather event, allowing the plant to take precautionary measures such as adding antifreeze to the lines.
