- With Ansys’ digital twin solution, ENGIE Lab CRIGEN can develop a simulation-based digital twin of an industrial property to help companies reduce costs, time and environmental impact
- Ansys solutions enable improved product performance during operations through predictive analytics that support asset management decisions
ENGIE, one of the world’s leading providers of energy efficiency services, supports companies in the transition to carbon-free energy through employment Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) simulation solutions. With Ansys’ physics-based digital twin technology, ENGIE Lab CRIGEN is developing an ultra-fast, high-resolution platform to deliver the quality of 3D CFD results in real time, thereby reducing costs, environmental impact and time-to-market for companies.
When industrial facilities are inaccessible to physical sensors due to extreme conditions or costs, it becomes more difficult to predict maintenance needs and identify efficiency improvements. These improvements are becoming increasingly critical as companies face increased pressure to conserve energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce their environmental footprint. In collaboration with Ansys, ENGIE Lab CRIGEN – the ENGIE Group’s corporate center for research and development as well as high-level specialist knowledge – is developing an ultra-fast and simulation-based digital twin on a high-fidelity basis to maximize the efficiency and sustainability of industrial plants and increase product reliability and evaluate new concepts in energy generation.
Ansys® Twin Builder ™ creates simulated replicas of operational physical assets and presents relevant high-fidelity information in real time. These digital twins strengthen ENGIE Lab CRIGEN’s strategic CO2-free initiative, which enables engineers to control industrial processes, anticipate challenges in reducing CO2 emissions and lower maintenance costs.
“ENGIE Lab CRIGEN is committed to achieving ambitious environmental goals by helping organizations transition to low-carbon energy,” he said Guy-Alexandre Grandin, R&D Project Manager, ENGIE Lab CRIGEN. “Transforming existing technologies and innovating new solutions to meet this challenge is a time-consuming and costly process. Our platform requires an extremely high degree of coupling between the real and the virtual world. Ansys solutions allow us to improve product performance during operation and provide insights into predictive analytics and asset performance management decisions, regardless of the environment. “
“Ansys Digital Twins enable manufacturing companies to transform their businesses through cost savings, new revenue streams and process optimization,” he said Prith Banerjee, Chief Technology Officer, Ansys. “Our combination of multiphysics and analytical models supports ENGIE Lab CRIGEN as it addresses the sustainability challenge between companies and governments and shapes the future of carbon-free energy.”
