INEOS Forties Pipeline System (FPS) has deployed AI technology to enable it to further reduce emissions from its operations.
As part of its commitment for net zero emissions by 2045, Ineos FPS is now deploying the company’s emissions.AI software at the Kinneil Terminal in Grangemouth, Scotland. Ineos FPS is working with data analytics company Opex Group to deploy the technology, which calculates the lowest achievable emissions in order to determine what improvements can be made. It continuously monitors energy use to identify opportunities to minimise fuel and power consumption. By providing detailed real-time data, operational teams will be able to optimise processes, and Ineos FPS says that the software could enable emissions reductions of up to 10%. It says that it has already reduced emissions by 37% since it acquired the site in 2005.
Andrew Gardner, Chief Executive at Ineos FPS, said: “The installation of the emissions.AI software takes energy management to a new level, that will lead to significant CO2 savings. We are committed to delivering our roadmap to net zero and see technology as a key enabler to achieving our decarbonisation goals. Across our organisation we are embedding a culture of carbon awareness, including as part of daily operations. AI will assist our teams in unlocking immediate operational emissions savings by making emissions data instantly available to them.”
