GWTP will be responsible for establishing a smart business center to support the implementation and demonstration of a digital twin technology-applied control center, while Doosan will be bringing its digital solutions, DDI will be contributing its system integration expertise and Ericsson-LG will be providing its 5G technology for the partnership.
“By exhibiting our proven technological expertise in the power generation sector at home and abroad, such as for power plants and offshore wind turbines, Doosan Heavy has been able to build trust with customers for our digital business,” said Yongjin Song, CSO of Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction. He added, “By entering into this partnership, we will be pursuing the establishment of a new digital ecosystem and demonstration of new businesses, and will be actively expanding our digital business into other non-power sectors.”
