Digitalisation in generation

We promote the digitalisation of our electricity generation plants

The goal of our digitalisation initiatives in generation is to increase the efficiency of the plants and improve their integration into the electricity system.

Aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals

 

Sustainable development goals

SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities

We are making significant growth investments aimed at modernising and developing new infrastructures that respond to current trends in decarbonisation and electrification of the economy.

Our ongoing digital transformation projects in the field of electricity generation incorporate the use of new technologies with the aim of improving efficiency in power generation and reducing the impact on the environment. Also, digitalisation initiatives will allow us to continue to increase the grid's automation and digitalisation. We want to strengthen security of supply, improve service quality and respond to future customer demands.

We are increasing our efforts to digitalise the management of our electricity generation plants, in order to increase their operational efficiency and improve their integration into the electricity system.

 

Digitalisation of the thermal and renewable generation facilities

At generation facilities, there are two major digitalisation programmes underway, Digiworld: covering the Operation and Maintenance processes, both in thermal and renewable power stations; and another covering the engineering and construction processes: E&C Revolution 2.0.

Digiworld

An integrated operation and maintenance digitalisation programme that will facilitate process homogenisation between thermal and renewable technologies, thus generating a coherent and effective platform. This is a four-year programme, 2020-2023, and includes several important initiatives. The main ones are as follows:

Contract Revolution

Platform that allows plant supervisors to manage the contract-related process, including contract lists, documentation, workbooks and connection with other platforms to ensure the traceability and efficiency of the entire process.

Digital Worker transformation

Development of mobile tools for the field operator, in order to provide key information in the field simply and quickly, reducing the time needed to do the work and improving the safety of these operations.

Global Operational System

Development and implementation of a single global system to more efficiently manage the analysis processes of facilities through standardisation, guaranteeing data quality, automated collection of information from the plants, and integration with other O&M processes.

HSEQ-Digitalización de la Gestión de Residuos

To improve the safety and traceability of waste management carried out by the plant, through the implementation of digital technologies.

E&C Revolution

Programme for the digitalisation and homogenisation of processes, which is based on three main drivers: automation of operations, digitalisation and innovation. It comprises several tools, including:

IUP

Platform that supports all E&C processes.

BIM

Project engineering design automation.

Digsilent

Software for modelling and studying electrical power systems, by creating static and dynamic models and simulations.

Active Safety System

Device for detection of people near work areas with machinery.

GPS excavator

System for precision excavation with GPS technology; semi-automatic, guided or manual.
