Closer to customers
In 2003, COPA-DATA established first contacts with companies in the Middle East. zenon has since become firmly established in the oil and gas related process industry, water desalination and in the energy sector, including renewable energy from e.g. photovoltaic systems. This is also due to the software platform’s approbation by Saudi Arabian energy supplier Saudi Aramco and power grid operator Saudi National Grid. The market continues to grow fast, with great potential in the automation of more power generation and distribution installations.
