The CLH Group has investment more than €22 million in research and development projects to improve the safety, efficiency and sustainability of their activities.
Investments over the past three years include the ‘Lean’ methodology, to enhance the quality and efficiency of processes as well as renovations to its Pipeline Control Centre, including a new version of SCADA, a computer programme that allows the company to manage its pipeline network via satellite.
This new version is more streamlined, has a greater storage capacity and provides significant improvements in the management of pipelines.
Another initiative has been the way the company adapts its activities in installations to develop a segregated storage model, with the aim of expanding services to meet market demands. This model allows the company to store bulk liquid that cannot be entered into the undifferentiated system due to its specific characteristics.
Other initiatives include the digitalisation of installations, a new system for asset management as well as a unique management system for operational safety, implemented by CLH Aviation.
