Gasunie Deutschland Successfully Commences Operations of the Gas Management System PSIcontrol

Extensive software upgrade and project-specific functional enhancements

Berlin, 19 December 2019 – As part of the order placed with PSI Software AG for the supply of a software upgrade for the existing gas management system to Gasunie Deutschland, the three site systems went into operation as planned after the successful commissioning of the test system phase and parallel operation.

The extensive upgrade contains updates of the existing PSI standard applications and functional project-specific extensions. Based on the gas management suite, a powerful system is in place. This includes the core modules PSIcontrol/Gas, PSItransport for scheduling and PSIganesi/Online Simulation for monitoring, controlling and balancing the gas network as well as PSIreko for gas composition tracking for billing purposes and PSIreporting for powerful reporting. In addition to general product maintenance, the upgrade includes especially continuous further development in the area of IT security.

As part of the PSI upgrade service, the upgrade capability of the software system ensures a technical basis for cyclic expansion of the PSI software components used.

Gasunie Deutschland is responsible for the management, operation and expansion of an approximately 3,800-kilometre long pipeline network in northern Germany. Due to its geographical location, this pipeline network functions as a gas hub for north-western Europe and thus makes a significant contribution to the security of gas supply.

Based on its own software products, PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy networks, energy trading, public transport) and industry (mining, metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs almost 2,000 persons worldwide.
