Schneider has teamed up with Microsoft to build commercial solutions from internet of things (IoT) in the field of automation and energy management. Through the Schneider Electric EcoStruxure platform, the electric firm intends to address the market volatility challenges arising in the oil and gas industry, while reducing OpEx and CapEx by 20%-30%.
Anil Chaudhry, Managing Director at the Schneider Electric India said when process and power management systems work as separate silos, industrial enterprises soon find themselves trapped in a competitive disadvantage. Through EcoStruxure companies can get better returns on the employed capital, with a 20% reduction in CapEx and a 15% reduction in downtime, as well as a 3% increase in profitability.
Anil Chaudhry further added that the Indian hydrocarbon market is at the edge of major transformation as companies in the value chain are stepping up their efforts to increase the country’s self-sufficiency in gas and oil, further expand refining capacities, and establish infrastructure of pipeline for transportation throughout the country.
By leveraging the IoT-enabled Schneider Electric EcoStruxure platform and system architecture, consumers can link assets that at the core of their projects to the assets that come form the core of their operations throughout the complete life cycle of their respective plants, including supply chains.
