AVEVA, a global leader in engineering and industrial software, has signed an agreement on Oct. 28 to help accelerate Shell Global Solutions International BV’s digital transformational strategy by deploying AVEVA’s cloud software solutions.
AVEVA will provide Shell with its Engineering Data Warehouse technology, which is one of the building blocks of the digital twin. This will enable a common digital thread across engineering, operations and maintenance and the ability to securely deliver information in context from a single source to decision makers across these critical functions.
AVEVA’s Engineering Data Warehouse will enable Shell through its digital twin to drive asset reliability, enhance efficiency and reduce unplanned downtime. The solution will also support in providing actionable insights right from the site operator to the asset leadership team.
AVEVA’s solution supports Shell’s ambition to empower staff across Shell’s manufacturing sites and to keep frontline industrial workers safe while ensuring business continuity and operational resilience.
“Empowering workers requires access to all the information as today’s new normal entails remote access to monitor, manage and optimize production facilities,” Johan Krebbers, general manager of digital emerging technologies/vice president of IT Innovation at Shell, said. “We are already witnessing the benefits of our strategic collaboration with AVEVA through our fully aligned vision for digital transformation. This has enabled us to conduct operations remotely as well as seamlessly access the necessary applications to provide the insight, guidance and tools to ensure safe, effective and consistent work output, specific to each role.”
AVEVA’s Engineering Data Warehouse brings together engineering information across the lifecycle of the asset, supported by powerful and proven applications that enable visualization, analysis, prediction and guidance. Its vast experience across multiple industries provides the domain content to address industry specific scenarios and use cases.
