We are driving the digitalisation of the energy sector

We are involved in various projects that are working towards the digital transformation of the utilities sector (service supply companies) with the aim of incorporating and developing 4.0 tools and solutions that ensure service improvements and network and infrastructure safety.

We are collaborating on three projects (SENIX: network sensorisation and inspection, MODEM: demand prediction and management models, and ACTIV: advanced asset management and operation), which began in December 2017 and end in April 2021. In addition, we are leading the first two and coordinating the work of research sector companies, technology companies and universities. All these initiatives are part of the RIS3CAT project, which is jointly funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through ACCIÓ – Agency for Business Competitiveness managed by the Government of Catalonia, of which Nedgia is a member.

SENIX: network sensorisation and inspection

(COMRDI16-1-0055)

The aim of the SENIX project is to investigate and utilise new technologies to digitalise and automate utility network inspection and management tasks, as well as improve the safety and performance of gas and water supply networks.

MODEM: demand prediction and management models

(COMRDI16-1-0057)

El proyecto MODEM tiene como objetivo el desarrollo y la validación de modelos predictivos y de gestión de la demanda para implementarlos en el sector de las utilities. Con los resultados obtenidos se busca conseguir una gestión más sostenible y eficiente de los recursos, avanzar en la transformación digital del sector (contadores digitales e inteligencia de redes) y generar estrategias de servicio adaptadas a las necesidades de un cliente cada más activo y exigente.

En el marco del proyecto MODEM, ponemos en marcha en la localidad de El Papiol (Barcelona) una prueba piloto para obtener los datos de consumo del contador de gas natural a través de un sistema de telemedida.

ACTIV: advanced asset management and operation

(COMRDI16-1-0054)

The ACTIV initiative aims to transform digital management of assets and processes in the services and networks provided by utilities in order to offer the public a better service.
