Eni has chosen the Val d’Agri Oil Centre to become its first “Lighthouse”, a fully digitalised plant equipped with the most innovative technologies. Eni’s Viggiano Centre has been key to this journey. The facility has a considerable amount of data available and is one of the company’s most advanced and complete plants.
In order to build the Lighthouse, the site's operational staff have access to a "library" of tried and tested digital solutions and are responsible for selecting those that best meet the requirements of the specific site, demonstrating that there is always a skilled person at the heart of the digital transformation process.
A single control system (IOC-Integrated Operation Centre) provides access to all the information regarding the most relevant processes for the site, delivering operational signals which are generated by the digital solutions implemented at each facility.
The process to implement these digital solutions is supported by a major change management programme. These change management initiatives provide the necessary support for the site staff involved in the digital transformation process, helping to improve their skills and ensure new digital technologies are adopted effectively.
