Swedish cloud enterprise software company IFS said that its IFS Cloud platform has been selected by EDF Renewables UK and Ireland to deliver enterprise asset management (EAM).

EDF Renewables UK and Ireland, which is a joint venture between EDF Renewables Group and EDF Energy, is specialised in solar, wind, and battery technology.

For supporting its plans to boost the total green energy output generated by its onshore and offshore assets, EDF Renewables UK started the project last year.

IFS claimed that its future-proof solution is designed around a concept of composable enterprise, which provides the renewable energy firm with operational flexibility and business agility, which are critical for innovative businesses having a high growth rate.

IFS UK and Ireland managing director Alan Laing said: “IFS Cloud was designed to offer companies with a high growth rate an uncomplicated path towards becoming more data-driven, improve innovation, and, ultimately, deliver a better Moment of Service to their customers.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with EDF Renewables UK and Ireland on this mission.”

The Swedish firm will power EDF Renewables UK and Ireland’s EAM, which includes operation and maintenance, contract management, work order management, and mobile workforce management.

IFS said that through IFS Cloud, it can provide end-to-end visibility across various organisational structures and business divisions. This is because IFS Cloud is a single platform that has a single data model.

The cloud platform is said to be underpinned by key value drivers like asset performance management, mobile work execution, Internet of Things (IoT), and live dashboards and key performance indicators (KPIs), said the Swedish company.

IFS Cloud is planned to be deployed to 380 full users, with 90 mobile technicians.

EDF Renewables UK and Ireland asset operations director Piero Maggio said: “Delivering IFS Cloud forms a key part of our future growth strategy. The new platform will allow us to scale our business more efficiently and consistently, whilst also capturing the richer management information needed to drive continuous improvement and inform key decision-making.

“Using IFS Cloud will enable us to optimise the quality and utilisation of our assets, as well as create shareholder value through improved information flows. I couldn’t be more pleased to be working with IFS.”

Last month, IFS said that Norwegian producer of hydraulic equipment Servi Group has moved to IFS Cloud to increase its operational efficiency.
