LONDON, April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --Solace announced today that Drax Group has selected its event streaming and management technology to make its IT architecture more efficient, agile, and to help reduce the cost of delivery.
Having converted two-thirds of Drax Power Station in North Yorkshire to use sustainable biomass instead of coal, Drax has become the largest decarbonisation project in Europe and the biggest single site renewable power generator in the UK. It has also paved the way for the company to become carbon negative by 2030 by deploying negative emissions technology bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) - permanently storing millions of tonnes of CO2 a year.
Drax needed a unified, real-time view of its data to maximise the efficiency and the environmental footprint of its supply chain and energy production. Solace is a key element of Drax's Data and Integration Hubs, which allow easy access to data sources, wherever they are. Solace's event mesh distributes data between applications and devices in real-time, running across divisions and on-premises data centres as well as public clouds. Solace's event mesh helps customers' data move in real-time, affecting the pertinent applications and ensuring information across the enterprise is up to date, every minute. With this capability, Solace will help Drax to dynamically manage demand fluctuations, storage, and energy delivery across the UK.
