Multi-Net technology offers network operators greater flexibility across all sectors

Berlin, August 30, 2022 - The network operating companies of EWE AG, EWE NETZ GmbH and wesernetz Bremen GmbH, have commissioned PSI Software AG with the migration to the multi-utility control system PSIcontrol Version 4.9. The migration will take place as part of a joint overarching project.

The multi-net technology in PSIcontrol gives network operators even greater flexibility. The control system regulates the gas, water, electricity and district heating divisions and works with data models that are separated by supply sector, for example. This allows the free choice between a cross-sector mode of operation or the separate management of the networks. At the same time, PSIcontrol supports the dispatchers with a variety of higher functions for assessing the network status. This offers a high level of innovation security in the future.

Both network operating companies have been using the PSIprins control system up until now. The migration will take place to the current PSIcontrol version 4.9. The project duration is planned until 2024.

EWE NETZ GmbH, headquartered in Oldenburg, is a company of the EWE Group. EWE NETZ is indirectly a subsidiary of EWE AG. In addition, 123 cities and municipalities from the Ems-Weser-Elbe region have a 4.1 percent stake.

wesernetz Bremen GmbH operates all or parts of the local supply networks for electricity, natural gas, drinking water and district heating in Bremen, Bremerhaven, Geestland, Stuhr, Samtgemeinde Thedinghausen and Weyhe.

The PSI Group develops its own software products for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy grids, energy trading, public transport) and industry (metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). The industry-specific products, which are built from standard components, are sold both directly and via the multi-cloud PSI App Store and can also be customized by customers and partners themselves. PSI was founded in 1969 and employs more than 2,200 people worldwide. www.psi.de
