Norway renewable giant chooses IFS Cloud


Norwegian renewable energy provider, Hafslund Oslo Celsio has purchased IFS Cloud to support the digitalization of multiple services across its business.

The company will utilize the IFS solution to drive efficiencies across its green energy production processes develop carbon capture and storage capabilities and reduce waste.

Hafslund Oslo Celsio wanted the chosen system to deliver economies of scale at its Haraldrud and Klemetsrud sites: the latter is not only Norway’s biggest waste facility but will also become the world’s first incineration plant with full-scale carbon capture. Additionally, Hafslund Oslo Celsio was looking for a solution to help it to meet the city of Oslo’s increasingly ambitious climate goals.

IFS will implement the solution for Hafslund Oslo Celsio, supporting 400 users across a 700 kilometres-wide distribution net. IFS is also delivering IFS Success services and expert consultancy to the Norwegian energy provider.

Elni Kullmer, president, IFS North Central Europe, said: “In common with other energy providers across the world, Hafslund Oslo Celsio is facing an urgent need to increase energy efficiency and reduce wastage in order to deliver more sustainable operations, and this challenge is compounded by having a new company structure in place. That’s where IFS can step in and deliver a single platform solution with IFS Cloud that supports digitalization for Hafslund Oslo Celsio, while also helping to streamline its operations with IFS Success services.”

Jonny Lotten, head of IT and digitalization, Hafslund Oslo Celsio, said: “With a new company structure in place, together with a need to accelerate the delivery of new carbon capture and storage initiatives, we needed a solution that could drive our push for digitalization and generate operational efficiencies. The flexibility and versatility that IFS Cloud offered us in supporting ERP, EAM, and FSM on a single platform, as well as accelerating the delivery of digital capabilities, made it ideally suited to our needs.”
