ENGIE, the world's largest power producer, was faced with the challenge of implementing an enterprise-wide digital transformation and establishing a center for IoT excellence. This transformation was to span across various sectors including customer service, metering, energy management, and maintenance. The project was to be implemented across 24 business units in 70 countries, requiring a significant staffing investment. The first applications to be developed and deployed on the ENGIE digital platform included performance optimization for gas power plants, efficiency optimization of heating and cooling plants, energy analysis and management for enterprise and consumer customers, and anomaly detection of wind turbines.
About The Customer
ENGIE is the largest power producer in the world with a power-production capacity of 114.4GW and an annual revenue of €67 Billion. The company has a workforce of 153K employees and operates in 70 countries. ENGIE is also the number one supplier of energy efficiency services in the world. The company works across five lines of business and collaborates with C3 AI on a roadmap for business and residential solutions, decentralized solutions for cities and territories, gas operations, and electricity production.
ENGIE chose the C3 AI Platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to create and implement their digital transformation platform. To undertake this massive project, ENGIE and C3 AI trained over 70 employees, including more than 20 data scientists, on the C3 AI Platform. They established a center of excellence (CoE) comprised of over 30 personnel working on applications and servicing the business. ENGIE also established a Digital Factory with a staff of 100 experts to propagate technologies and expertise worldwide. To connect to the diverse devices ENGIE uses in operations, the C3 AI Platform provides support for a variety of device interfaces such as SigFox, DCS, EtaPRO, SCADA, Linky, and AWS IoT Core.

Predictive Maintenance for Industrial Chillers
For global leaders in the industrial chiller manufacturing, reliability of the entire production process is of the utmost importance. Chillers are refrigeration systems that produce ice water to provide cooling for a process or industrial application. One of those leaders sought a way to respond to asset performance issues, even before they occur. The intelligence to guarantee maximum reliability of cooling devices is embedded (pre-alarming). A pre-alarming phase means that the cooling device still works, but symptoms may appear, telling manufacturers that a failure is likely to occur in the near future. Chillers who are not internet connected at that moment, provide little insight in this pre-alarming phase.
