The challenge

Cepsa´s challenge was to enable remote visits and technical assistance to their worldwide facilities while complying with Health, Safety and Environment regulations.

What is an Intrinsically Safe device?

Intrinsically safe electronics allow for safe operation in hazardous areas by limiting the electrical or thermal energy available for ignition.

Cepsa is a global energy company based in Spain and with presence across the five continents.

What customers think about us

“We believe in a bright future for remote service technology, especially for companies like Cepsa for which safety is the cornerstone of their operations, and for which, until very recently, there was no technology in the market that would allow to perform this kind of activities at our industrial facilities. Thanks to Remote Expertise now it is possible. 

In Cepsa, there is an increasing demand to use of remote communications, preventing physical visits to our facilities as much as possible. Considering that we have presence in many countries, Remote Expertise is making us more efficient and resilient adapting to paradigm shifts, while becoming a more sustainable company. 

For this journey, Wideum is our technology partner, thanks to their excellent product innovation and most importantly, their flexibility to adapt the solution to our requirements, fast responsiveness and continuous support.”
