UK software specialist AVEVA has signed an agreement to help accelerate Shell Global Solutions International’s digital transformational strategy.

Under the strategic partnership, AVEVA will deploy its Cloud software solutions.

The software firm will provide Shell with its ‘Engineering Data Warehouse’ technology, which is one of the building blocks of the ‘digital twin’.

According to AVEVA, this will enable a ‘common digital thread across Engineering, Operations and Maintenance’.

Shell Digital Emerging Technologies GM and IT Innovation VP Johan Krebbers said: “Empowering workers requires access to all the information as today’s new normal entails remote access to monitor, manage and optimise production facilities.

“We are already witnessing the benefits of our strategic collaboration with AVEVA through our fully aligned vision for digital transformation.”

AVEVA noted that its Engineering Data Warehouse technology will enable Shell to provide actionable insights, from the site operator to the ‘Asset Leadership Team’.

AVEVA chief product officer Ravi Gopinath said: “We are delighted that Shell has chosen to extend its long and robust existing strategic partnership with AVEVA to support in enabling the digital twin cloud-based services.

“This deployment is part of Shell’s recently announced strategy to deploy digital twin technology across its manufacturing sites. Implementing new technologies like IIoT, extended reality, and artificial intelligence has huge advantages with the digital twin of an operating environment and this cutting-edge technology is guaranteed to deliver immediate improvements for Shell’s operations.”

In February last year, AVEVA updated its monitoring, control and information management portfolio that provides digital visualisation tools for the offshore industry.
