Berlin, 29 January 2019 – PSI Software AG has been contracted by GASCADE Gastransport GmbH to upgrade the existing PSIcontrol/Gas network control system. The upgrade consists of updating the standard PSI applications already in use as well as multiple functional extensions.

Based on the Gas Management Suite, the core modules PSIcontrol/Gas, PSItransport and PSIganesi/Online simulation for the monitoring, control and balancing of the gas network will be implemented. In addition, PSIreko will be used for the tracking of gas characteristics for invoicing purposes. The upgrade also includes general product maintenance, in particular the continuous development in the field of IT security.

PSI was originally contracted in 2013 by GASCADE with the renewal of the network control system. It has been successfully operated on a number of geo-redundant sites since 2014.

GASCADE Gastransport GmbH, headquartered in Kassel, as one of the largest natural gas transportation companies in Germany, operates a transportation network of some 2,400 kilometers. The GASCADE pipeline network directly connects five European countries via border crossings.

Based on its own software products, the 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 more than 1,750 persons worldwide.
