His Fortum CDO position includes formulating a digital strategy and incorporating it into the business strategy, introducing new digital business opportunities/models, and identifying opportunities for cost savings/efficiency/margin improvements.Close
How do you handle +10,000 measurement points – from a single power plant – to reach a new level of maintenance, operations and long-term optimization for sustainability and economy?
2.5 years ago, Per Edoff initiated the transformation project “Team strategy IT & digitalization”, using tools like AI, IoT and RPA. Today, the control, economy, and data gathering linked to systems and facilities run completely differently, and digital intelligence continues to be the guiding light.
