Training for Tomorrow
22 June 2020

Operator error is common and expensive. Chemical plants lose more than $20 billion annually from human error and insufficient knowledge. Trends in the workforce and the workplace are likely to exacerbate the problem. To overcome this challenge, operating companies need to shift their cultures from a training-centered, box-checking culture to a learning-centered, results-driven culture. The shift will reveal experiential, simulationbased learning as the most effective way to give your workforce the situational awareness needed to make the right choice in every scenario.

Cloud technology makes experiential learning accessible and practical for any organization. As experts in cloudbased operator training simulators (Cloud OTS) for every stage of operations, AVEVA is already helping forward-looking companies change their cultures and redefine training for tomorrow

Technologies to make hydrogen one of the ‘go-to’ fuels of the future
9 March 2020

 As global efforts to reach net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050 intensify, hydrogen’s credentials as a powerful ally for renewable energy and tool for decarbonization are in the spotlight. 

This white paper explores what it will take for hydrogen to play two key roles in the global quest for net zero:

  • Enabling greater use of renewable electricity as a form of storage and cleaner source of power generation to balance the intermittency of renewables
  • Decarbonizing CO2-intensive sectors by serving as a low-emissions propellant in shipping, a feedstock and heat source for industry, and an alternative fuel in residential and commercial heating.

Digi-OE: the merger that every energy company should do
18 December 2019

Over the last few decades, operational excellence (OE) programmes have been an important way that oil and gas companies have sought to enhance their performance. Such programmes, built on the foundations of process excellence techniques such as Lean and Six Sigma, whipped around organisations, optimising processes and taking out cost. But, despite some success, most did not realise the full performance potential of their assets and operations.
