Engie, one of the world's leading energy service providers, relies on Ansys' digital simulation solutions to help organizations transition to decarbonized energy. Using Ansys' digital twin technology, Engie Lab Crigen (the Engie Group's high-level research and expertise centre dedicated to green gases and new energy resources) is developing an engineering platform capable of delivering CFD (Computal Fluid Dynamics) simulation 3D (Computal Fluids Dynamics) simulation visualizations in real time with great precision. This solution will save businesses money, reduce their environmental impact and accelerate product marketing.
Due to complex installation conditions or high costs, it is sometimes impossible to install physical sensors on certain industrial equipment. This makes it more difficult to optimize their efficiency and predict their maintenance needs. However, these improvements are crucial at a time when companies are facing increased pressure to reduce their energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and environmental footprint. Through its collaboration with Ansys, Engie Lab Crigen develops simulation-based digital twins that maximize the efficiency and durability of industrial equipment, improve product reliability and evaluate new energy production concepts.
The Ansys Twin Builder software offers the ability to create virtual duplicates of physical assets in use and obtain real-time relevant field-based information.
The development of these digital twins, part of Engie Lab Crigen's "zero carbon" strategy, allows engineers to control industrial processes, better anticipate challenges associated with lower carbon emissions and reduce maintenance costs.
"Engie Lab Crigen is committed to achieving demanding environmental goals by helping organizations transition to zero-carbon energy," says Guy-Alexandre Grandin, Research and Development Project Manager at Engie Lab Crigen. Adapting existing technologies and developing innovative solutions to meet these goals is a long and costly process. In addition, our platform needs an extremely high level of coupling between the real and virtual world. With Ansys' solutions, we can improve the performance of products in operation, provide insight into predictive analytics and asset performance management decisions, regardless of the environment. »
"Ansys' digital twin solutions enable manufacturing companies to transform their business through significant savings, optimized processes and new revenue streams," said Prith Banerjee, Chief Technology Officer, Ansys. Our combination of multiphysical and analytical models helps Engie Lab Crigen meet the challenge of sustainable transition and support businesses and governments to shape the future of zero-carbon energy. »
