Addition completes AI-powered end-to-end suite of integrity solutions for asset-intensive industries, such as chemicals, oil and gas, renewable energy, and other process industries
C3 AI (NYSE:AI), the Enterprise AI software company, today announced that global engineering software company Cenosco will join the Open AI Energy Initiative (OAI), an open ecosystem of artificial intelligence (AI)-based solutions for the energy and process industries. Cenosco’s powerful asset integrity software suite will complement the OAI’s existing capabilities, delivering an AI-powered end-to-end suite of asset integrity solutions.
Launched by C3 AI, Shell, Baker Hughes, and Microsoft in February 2021, the OAI provides an open framework for energy operators, service and equipment providers, and independent software vendors for energy operations to offer interoperable solutions, powered by the BHC3 AI Suite and Microsoft Azure. Cenosco is the third independent software vendor to join the OAI, following Kongsberg Digital and MathWorks, who joined in November 2021.
Cenosco will offer its Integrity Management Solution (IMS), built in collaboration with Shell, that safeguards integrity, reliability, and instrumentation safety in asset intensive industries. Today, Cenosco’s IMS has been deployed to over 120 assets across more than 50 countries. The solution complements the OAI’s existing offerings focused on reliability and asset integrity, including Shell’s Autonomous Integrity Recognition, which provides machine vision for integrity issue identification, Shell Corrosion Advanced Risk Modelling and Analytics, an AI-based internal corrosion and erosion prediction solution, and BHC3™ Reliability, an AI-based predictive maintenance solution. By integrating these solutions with Cenosco’s IMS, the OAI will offer an AI-powered end-to-end solution for integrity management — from issue identification to diagnosis and resolution — for customers across asset intensive industries, such as chemicals, oil and gas, renewable energy, and process industries.
“Just over a year ago, the OAI began building an ecosystem of partners with the aim of revolutionizing the energy industry through cutting-edge AI-powered software,” said Dan Jeavons, Vice President Computational Science and Digital Innovation at Shell. “Today, this ecosystem offers some of the most sophisticated solutions available on the market, and the integration of Cenosco’s technology can help to unlock even more value for customers.”
“Cenosco is delighted to join an impressive ecosystem of other industry-leading software providers for energy operations,” said Cenosco’s CEO Jan Poulsen. “For customers who want unified asset integrity capabilities, the addition of our Integrity Management Solution to the OAI provides the remaining building blocks for a comprehensive, AI-powered, end-to-end integrity monitoring and management software suite.”
Cenosco IMS deployments began with operations at Shell, and since have been expanded to clientele across more than fifty companies worldwide and 120 assets globally. Starting in May 2022, Cenosco IMS will also be available through OAI, in combination with other solutions.
“The OAI has transformed how the energy industry operates by bringing together the best AI and software solutions,” said Ed Abbo, C3 AI President and CTO. “Cenosco is a strong addition to our ecosystem of global industry leaders, and we welcome their partnership to drive even greater digital transformation throughout the energy and process industries.”
