Total set to open a digital factory

20 October 2019

Total will open a Digital Factory in Paris early in 2020 with the aim of bringing together up to 300 developers, data scientists and other experts to accelerate the Group’s digital transformation.

The goal of the project is to leverage the capabilities of digital tools to create value
in all of its businesses.

The Digital Factory will be tasked with developing the digital solutions needed by the company to improve its operations, in terms of both availability and cost; offer new services to customers, notably in the area of managing and controlling energy consumption; extend its reach to new distributed energies; and reduce its environmental impact. 

Total’s ambition is to generate as much as $1.5 billion in value per year for the company by 2025 through additional revenue and reductions in operating or investment expenses.

Commenting on the project, Patrick Pouyanné, chairman and chief executive officer of Total, said: “I am convinced that digital technology is a critical driver for achieving our excellence objectives across all of Total’s business segments. Total’s Digital Factory will serve as an accelerator, allowing the Group to systematically deploy customised digital solutions. Artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G are revolutionising our industrial practices, and we will have the know-how in Paris to integrate them in our businesses as early as possible. The Digital Factory will also attract the new talent essential to our company’s future.” 

The Digital Factory is a new step in Total’s transformation process. It follows on the signature of major partnership agreements with Google on artificial intelligence and geosciences and with Tata Consultancy Services on Refinery 4.0.
