Industrial software company Aspen Technology has partnered with european transmission system operator TenneT, for better grid management

TenneT recently completed implementation of its new Power Management System (PMS) which was developed using AspenTech OSI digital grid management solutions. 

To help manage the power system, the AspenTech and TenneT teams will collaborate on a range of areas, including AI and machine learning, cyber-physical system resilience, proactive operation, forecasting, automation and intelligent decision support among others.

Real-time data collection

The new PMS helps in the energy transition strategy to integrate more energy from renewable sources into its grid. It can be monitored and controlled in real-time. 

The new system can address electricity transmission system operations in Europe by:

Accelerating the hardening of critical grid infrastructure to mitigate adverse events.

Scaling renewable capacity rapidly to meet net-zero objectives.

Continuously aligning supply and demand of its network with others throughout the Netherlands, Germany and Europe.

“The transition to a decarbonised energy economy is one of the great challenges of the modern age,” commented Mario Suykerbuyk, chief information officer at TenneT. “TenneT is at the heart of this energy transition in Europe, and it is our responsibility to integrate vast and variable resources of renewable energy into the grid and transport it to end users, at speed and at scale and AspenTech’s partnership, innovation and technology are integral to success.”

Antonio Pietri, president and CEO at Aspen Technology said, “Our ongoing partnership with TenneT clearly demonstrates how a strong, collaborative working relationship, in combination with the implementation of innovative digital technologies, is essential to meet reliability, security and sustainability objectives, and ultimately to successfully navigate the energy transition.”
