Power & Utilities

Sustain innovation, projects and operations performance

Towards full control of safety and efficiency

Water Treatment Facility

Adapting to changing market conditions such as the rise in distributed energy resources or in environmental regulations is becoming essential for utility companies. On one hand, companies managing power production plants or water treatment facilities might diversify their technology choices and adapt their complex assets to today’s requirements, launching for instance new capital projects. On the other hand, companies managing an electrical grid or a gas distribution network might explore disruptive business and operating models to define their future in a world of highly connected and distributed digital systems. For both, as well as for non-electric utilities, health, safety and environmental considerations as well as cost management or maintaining asset reliability remain non-negotiable. Enabling these initiatives to embrace the new smart city paradigm requires companies to execute efficient projects and run lean operations.

The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform provides robust solutions that specifically support executing above power and utility strategies. Companies can manage data and business processes, with a unique shared virtual assets model integrating modeling and simulation technologies, to improve project execution and operational efficiencies.

All actors across the value chain can share business-critical knowledge in real time and reinforce decision-making. Operators can be informed of any non-conformity and accurately assess the impact of new requirements and changes on their asset. They can reduce unplanned shutdowns or outages through virtual simulation and leverage 3D models to safely practice maintenance procedures. Engineers can control asset lifecycle, and capitalize their diverse information history from multiple sources: design information, simulation results, vendor and supplier information, or maintenance operations. With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, power and utility companies have a real-time multidisciplinary view of their assets providing them with a sustainable advantage in an evolving industry.
