Digitalisation as a key driver for plant maintenance and network construction 4.0


Digitalisation as a key driver for plant maintenance and network construction 4.0

Conventional energy supply is currently in a watershed moment. Today, in light of increasing digitalisation, the energy sector stands before a historic transition process with the leap into the era of “Utility 4.0”. At the same time, the use of Industry 4.0 serves as an enabler for a wide range of economic possibilities in the supply chain of a network operator. Network construction and plant maintenance represent essential business areas for a network operator. In this context too, the use of innovative technologies such as AI, drones and sensor technology enables huge improvements in efficiency and quality. In order to ensure optimal performance and speed of network construction and plant maintenance processes in the future, we need to develop innovative applications in the field of digitalisation today.

Innovation screening

A play for time is not an alternative! Digitalisation is a game changer that shuffles the deck and deals new cards. Intelligent measurement systems and the associated new structures offer competitors outside of the energy sector an opportunity to enter the market. Energy suppliers that don’t get on board with the digital transformation risk getting left behind. Identify your individual innovation potential and lay the foundation for your future commercial success. With our innovation screening, we help network operators to identify and categorise innovation potentials in the fields of network construction and plant maintenance. Based on your current digitalisation status and your individual target vision, we work together with you to design a roadmap for the implementation and simultaneously map out the associated implications for your process and IT landscape. The aim is to adapt your efficiency and prepare you for future developments.

  • Mapping of your current level of digitalisation and definition of your target vision.
  • Analysis and classification of the potential benefits associated with possible innovations.
  • Determination of the degree of implementation of identified innovations and mapping of the resulting process and IT landscape.
  • Creation of a roadmap for ordered implementation of individual innovations.
