During ADIPEC 2019, Schneider Electric will highlight how its IoT-enabled, open, interoperable architecture EcoStruxure for oil, gas and petrochemicals, power and process solutions help its oil and gas customers create more value across their enterprises
Chris Dartnell, president oil and gas segment, Schneider Electric, said, “At ADIPEC 2019, we will showcase how advanced, digital technologies, like our IoT-enabled EcoStruxure platform, help our customers in the oil and gas and other energy-intensive segments reduce project risks and costs while reaching the first production sooner.”
By taking an asset-centric view of the plant across its lifecycle and supply chain, customers can better leverage capital investments upfront to optimise profitability and ROI when the plant begins operating.
Georges El Mir, vice-president oil and gas Middle East and Africa, commented, “Our technologies enable our customers to take a holistic view of their operations to optimise CapEx and OpEx investments.”
“For example, we can help bring down the traditional barriers between power management and process automation systems to help industrial customers solve critical engineering and operating challenges. Because they now have the ability to connect assets that are the centre of their projects with assets that are at the core of their operations across the full lifecycle of their plants, our customers can realise new levels of efficiency and agility, while improving the safety and profitability of their operations,” he added.
The company has worked closely with ADNOC on one of its latest offshore developments. Schneider Electric was brought in as a main electrical equipment supplier to support the installation of six new wellhead towers and an off-shore super complex consisting of six bridge linked platforms.
The objective was to include an integrated electrical architecture from one supplier with electrical asset management to ensure predictive maintenance of capital electrical equipment and use a secured cyber network with one electrical partner for services.
Visitors to Schneider Electric’s stand during ADIPEC will be able to learn more about how Schneider Electric enables customers to rethink traditional approaches when it comes to how they design, implement and operate their assets and as a result help them reach the first production sooner.
