    • CapEx improvements of 20% for energy and process solutions scope across the project lifecycle
    • Unplanned downtown reductions of 15%
    • Drive efficiency across the entire value chain of Oil, Gas & Petrochemical Industry

New Delhi, September 11, 2019: In a move that promises to boost India’s rapidly evolving oil & gas sector, Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management & automation, today announced the launch of EcoStruxure Power & Process (EP&P) to drive efficiency and augment profitability in this crucial segment of the economy. The company has partnered with Microsoft to create commercial internet of things (IoT) solutions in the areas of energy management and automation, thus bringing power and process systems together. Through this platform, Schneider Electric aims to address the challenges of market volatility in the O&G sector, while reducing CapEx and OpEx by 20-30%

When power and process management systems operate as separate silos, industrial organisations soon find themselves at a competitive disadvantage. Separate teams of engineers and programmers are needed to build up and maintain operations. As a result, the cost of supporting these complex, customised interfaces across the lifetime of the asset is high and it restricts the organisation’s ability to respond to changing market conditions. With the introduction of EP&P in the Indian market, companies in the oil, gas & petrochemical sector can break down the traditional barriers between power and process control systems to solve critical engineering and operating challenges. This can result in better returns on capital employed (ROCE), with a 20% reduction in CapEx, 15% reduction in downtime, and 3% growth in profitability.

Speaking on the launch, Anil Chaudhry, Zone President & Managing Director, Schneider Electric India said- “Marketplace changes and technology advancements are making the once daunting task of converging power and process systems an attainable, cost-justifiable goal. The Indian hydrocarbon sector is at the cusp of major transformation as companies across the value chain step up their efforts to boost India’s self-sufficiency in oil and gas, expand refining capacities, and set up pipeline infrastructure for transportation across the country. Through our partnership with Microsoft we aim to deliver real/tangible solutions and measurable business results for oil and gas players, improve efficiency, bring down cost of running operations and raise profitability.”

Commenting on the association with Schneider Electric, Meetul Patel, COO, Microsoft India, said, “Operations in the Oil & Gas industry are highly dispersed, making the efficient management of assets extremely challenging. Microsoft’s Azure platform provides Schneider Electric with advanced cloud and edge computing technologies to establish an intelligent network of IoT devices that can provide insights, drive innovative new solutions, and improve returns from investments”

By leveraging EcoStruxure IoT-enabled system architecture and platform, customers can connect assets that are the center of their projects with assets that are at the center of their operations across the full lifecycle of their plants, including their supply chains. By offering both tangible IoT solutions that are available today as well as leading edge innovation to address future needs, customers will benefit from the blend of domain/subject matter expertise from Schneider Electric and industry-leading cloud technology from Microsoft.

Sharing the compelling value proposition of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure, Navtej Garewal, Executive Vice President, Head of India- Aveva added, “The addition of the app and analytics piece and the access to prior information with the creation of digital twin will help create new insights and empower customers to fuel digital transformation in the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical industry in India.”
