Industrial development

ENTRAS is active in algorithm development for dispatching industrial assets like electrolysers, power plants, power-to-molecules applications and other energy related processes.

We are open to co-development. Preferred partners are industries looking for advanced process optimisation, but we also collaborate with technical university departments and research institutions, both in Belgium and abroad.

ENTRAS invests in intellectual property. Patents are pending for our algorithm on sootblow optimisation and for our degradation detection software.

 

Our strength: algorithm development for process optimisation 

Entras has strong capabilities for applying data analytics in industry. We take pride in developing state-of-the-art optimisation algorithms for any kind of boundary condition. This is one of our core capabilities.
In 2020 Entras received subsidies from VLAIO for an industrial research project regarding AI based process control

Our expertises

Dispatching models & tools

  • Dispatching of a biogas production facility
  • Prediction of degradation in a biomass power plant
  • Explosion detection based on data analytics
  • Dispatching of an electrolysis facility
  • Sootblow optimisation for biomass power plants and for waste incineration plants, producing heat and electricity
  • Dispatching of a power-to-X facility
  • Dispatching of storage systems (electricity, hydrogen, biogas etc)
  • Cost reduction of energy networks (heat, cold, electricity)
  • Optimal design of energy systems

Energy optimisation

Our R&D work covers energy related topics in industry, and focuses on process optimisation while taking into account supply contracts, electricity costs, CO2-emissions, primary energy use, fuel costs and any other  relevant parameter. 

We develop tailor made models for energy systems. Our models are intended to be converted into real-time control software. 

Energy market knowledge

Our R&D covers the mechanisms of the European electricity markets, such as the spot market, the imbalance mechanism, and ancillary services.

If you have R&D related questions for energy dispatching, industrial process optimisation etc, please get in touch. We are open to collaborate with industry, research institutions, universities etc.
Our market related R&D covers all European energy markets.

 

We worked with Entras from the development of our business case to the contracting of our asset.

Value creation is their leading principle, this during each phase of the project.
