- It is investing 13 million euros for the implementation of technologies in the Huelva and Campo de Gibraltar energy parks, including the development of 5G connectivity and the delivery of more than 500 smartphones and tablets
- Today, the company presented its plans to promote its Industry 4.0 strategy, with the presence of the Minister of the Presidency of the Junta de Andalucía, Antonio Sanz, accompanied by the Director General of the Digital Agency, Raúl Jiménez, and Lucía Núñez, territorial delegate of Economy, Finance and European Funds, and Industrial Policy and Energy in Huelva
Cepsa's plans for the implementation of Industry 4.0 include the adoption of technologies for greater efficiency and safety in the ways it works, such as the incorporation of new technologies in production plants and in all its operations, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G connectivity, computational analysis, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The Minister of the Presidency, Interior, Social Dialogue and Administrative Simplification, Antonio Sanz, applauded the Industrial Workplace Digitalization Project of Cepsa's energy parks because "it contributes to the digitalization of the population."
In addition, Sanz emphasized that with these processes, Cepsa shares objectives with the Andalusian Regional Government, such as “increasing efficiency through technologies and collaborative work tools, and increasing worker safety.”
In this regard, to meet these objectives, Sanz explained that from the Andalusian Government "we are deploying a range of strategies covering different fields of digitization", and gave the example of recent Andalusian Artificial Intelligence Strategy 2030, which was approved this week in the Governing Council to "improve the quality of public services of the Andalusian Government and the competitiveness of our companies."
For Jorge Acitores, director of the La Rábida Energy Park, "the commitment to digital transformation is part of our Positive Motion strategy to lead the energy transition in southern Europe. Well-applied technology is a fundamental tool for achieving efficiency improvements in our processes, emissions reduction and greater safety in operations, which is why we are committed to accelerating its implementation and thus becoming a benchmark in Industry 4.0."
Cepsa's units are equipped with advanced sensors, integrated software and robotics that collect and analyze data, thus improving real-time decision making. In May-June, more than 500 smartphones and tablets will be delivered to the La Rábida Energy Park (Huelva), which will provide convenience, ease of transport and better conservation of the devices prepared for use in the units. All this will improve the user experience, putting people at the center of these developments, in addition to improving performance at both hardware and software levels.
Technological innovation is one of the levers for accelerating the objectives of Cepsa's Positive Motion strategic plan. La Rábida Energy Park thus becomes the first production center in the sector with this technology. The private 5G network has allowed Cepsa to take advantage of the full potential of high-speed mobile broadband, and to have massive machine-to-machine interactions, which, in the words of Cepsa's managers in Huelva, leads us to rediscover what it means to work in real time.
Thanks to the digitization of processes through the use of operational and collaborative applications, operators will have the necessary information wherever it is required, both in the field and in spaces and times when they are in transit or in a location other than the workplace. In this way Cepsa achieves greater familiarization and integration of its corporate culture for all its industrial professionals, guaranteeing their accessibility to all relevant company information.
