Green Data Centre

The Eni Green Data Centre was developed with the aim of ensuring the highest level of reliability for all of the company’s IT requirements, and to achieve world-beating “green” energy efficiency results. The facility hosts all of the central processing systems, both for management systems and the processing of HPC simulations. Located in Ferrera Erbognone, the plant is designed to accommodate IT systems with energy absorption of up to 30MW of useful IT power, in a space of up to 5,200 square metres. Construction began in early 2010 and the centre was inaugurated on 29 October 2013.

  • HPC

    Eni has started the construction of the new HPC5 supercomputing system, with with the aim of enhancing and updating the current HPC4 and tripling its computing power, which will increase from 18 to 52 PetaFlop/s: an invention that will enable our Green Data Center to reach a peak power of 70 PetaFlop/s from the beginning of 2020, becoming a supercomputer infrastructure dedicated to supporting the world's most powerful industrial activities. HPC5 is fundamental for Oil & Gas activities, but also for the development, research and improvement of processes related to new energy sources, which accelerate the transition to new energy sources. Eni continues to pursue a strategic path in which the new supercomputing system will be crucial for digital transformation and production processes. HPC5 is supplied by Dell Technologies.
