To­tal and TCS to cre­ate dig­i­tal in­no­va­tion cen­tre in Pune

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -


Con­sul­tancy Ser­vices (TCS) has signed a part­ner­ship agree­ment with To­tal, a global in­te­grated en­ergy pro­ducer and provider, to cre­ate a dig­i­tal in­no­va­tion cen­tre in In­dia. Based in Pune, the cen­ter will ex­plore dis­rup­tive tech­nolo­gies and so­lu­tions.

“With the dig­i­tal in­no­va­tion cen­ter, we are po­si­tion­ing our­selves as a pioneer work­ing to de­velop a smart, con­nected re­fin­ery that will al­low us to im­prove our in­dus­trial com­pet­i­tive­ness. We want to in­vent the Re­fin­ery 4.0,” said Bernard Pi­na­tel, Pres­i­dent Re­fin­ing & Chem­i­cals at To­tal.

The part­ner­ship will ini­tially fo­cus on re­fin­ing. The in­ten­sive use of dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies will help drive the var­i­ous build­ing blocks of re­fin­ing (pro­duc­tion units, pro­cesses, and the sup­ply chain and petroleum prod­uct mar­kets) to im­prove re­fin­ery per­for­mance. Re­al­time data an­a­lyt­ics, the In­ter­net of Things, au­to­ma­tion, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence and ag­ile method­ol­ogy will be used to im­prove in­dus­trial ef­fi­ciency, en­ergy per­for­mance and avail­abil­ity rates. TCS will also bring to To­tal its net­work, its struc­tured co-in­no­va­tion ap­proach and its unique Busi­ness 4.0 co­op­er­a­tion frame­work.
