Redexis Gas is an organization in constant evolution, adapting to the needs of its customers and society’s demands. The diversification processes it is undergoing in recent years includes a wide range of activities that take on innovation and development in a purposeful way, including the application of artificial intelligence in different business activities.
Innovation and knowledge of the best technological solutions are essential for an efficient and safe operation of Redexis Gas’ assets. Therefore, the Company makes an effort to continue incorporating new technologies and functions that reduce the development processes and entail a great advantage in terms of costs and efficiency.
Redexis Gas has shown during 2017 that it is a pioneer in the incorporation of advanced, computer-based algorithms into its growth and business processes, which give priority to the commercial action and optimise the roll out and operation of the infrastructures. Thanks to the implementation of advanced Artificial Intelligence tools into its expansion projects, the company implemented two new models: one to optimise the investment in network planning, and the other one to plan field work. Additionally, the implementation of Artificial Intelligence has brought job creation. At present, the Company is implementing new developments, such as the optimisation of inspection routes, predictive management of network maintenance or risk prevention.
Redexis Gas continues developing modern technologies in all its scopes, and is advancing in its strategy of committing to, and investing in R&D, with projects based on sustainable energies favouring technological innovation and promoting energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Along these lines, the company recently signed an agreement with Enagás to promote renewable energy with the creation of ‘H2Gas’, the purpose of which is technological development and the promotion of infrastructures for the production and transport of hydrogen generated from renewable energies.
Both companies already work together to enhance and implement the introduction of renewable hydrogen into the gas transmission and distribution network. The project contemplates the use of ‘Power to Gas’ technology, which allows generating hydrogen from water and electricity and injecting the same into the gas pipeline network, whether directly or converted into synthetic natural gas or biomethane. Renewable hydrogen allows new connections between supply and demand of energy, which provide flexibility to the energy system. (For more information: Hydrogen to Gas).
