Vattenfall Uses Volue Software-As-A-Service
Determined to enable fossil-free living within a generation, Swedish energy group Vattenfall is taking on the responsibility to find new and sustainable ways to electrify transportation, industries, and heating.
Specializing in power generation and energy trading across Europe, Vattenfall has used Volue software for many years. With its new Software-as-a-Service, Volue will provide Vattenfall with solutions to support the communication with the European Transmission System Operators.
“For many years, Volue has been a trusted partner. Volue’s software is in use 24/7 and provides us with the speed and flexibility required to enter new markets and to adapt to changing market rules,” says Simon Peiner, Director Prompt Trading & Operations at Vattenfall.
Colleague Tobias Soyka, Head of ETRM Market Access & Logistics at Vattenfall, adds: “Vattenfall is migrating its core continental IT services to the cloud and third-party SaaS services. Volue’s roadmap, their reliability and experience as a software vendor led us to the decision to ask Volue to run one of our most business-critical applications as Software-as-a-Service,” said Soyka.
Trond Straume, CEO of Volue, is pleased that Vattenfall chose Volue.
“I am proud to have a strategic partner such as Vattenfall use our Software-as-a-Service to operate the trading of a substantial renewable portfolio. We help to improve Vattenfall’s process efficiency by more automation and shorter time-to-market,” says Straume.
