Current calls

In the fifth acceleration round, we are looking for solutions that respond to the challenges identified below, identified by companies from the ORLEN Group. Recruitment for the 5th round was launched on June 22, it will run until August 1.2022.

Challenges dedicated to the fifth round of recruitment:

Industry 4.0 and a safe organization

The solution sought should enable the ongoing monitoring and maintenance of failure-free operation of drive units within the process line. The expected range of analysed parameters will include at least the measurement of vibration values (their velocity and acceleration), rotational speed, temperature and will also ensure integration with the measurement data archiving systems and systems analysing machine operation functioning in the infrastructure of PKN ORLEN. The sensors should have ATEX certificates and be prepared to cooperate with the systems functioning in the infrastructure of PKN ORLEN.

Digital organization

We are looking for solutions based on distributed technologies to provide our customers with information about the sources of generation of the energy used.
We want to engage employees to strengthen the company's image by increasing communication of projects and issues important for the development of the company in the business environment on social media (including Linkedin) from the point of view of employees. The solution sought should help animate, moderate and monitor content published by employees related to PKN ORLEN's activities, as well as motivate users to actively share with their network information relevant to the company's image.
It is looking for entities with developed competences in Big Data analytics, building predictive-optimisation models and data visualisation in order to create a modern platform for supporting marketing and sales processes. The aim of the project is to increase the effectiveness of marketing activities and volume in sales based on advanced analysis of a wide range of sales, consumer, media and other marketing-mix and consumer path data.
A solution to identify leaks in the district heating network, using own and external data, with autonomous support for technical teams.
We are looking for a solution to audit the lighting infrastructure in real time, in particular road lighting. Our aim is to improve safety and compliance with legal standards.
The tool to be developed should locate undesirable events that disrupt the energy supply to customers. It should be based on information and communication data from the grid (data from balancing meters, data from customers and from smart meters) and operate in near real time.
A solution allowing for an increase in the effectiveness of the grid connection process based on data on existing customers, metering data, etc. The expected tool should ensure a significant shortening of the connection procedure time based on the available information. It should have an intuitive client interface, which will allow obtaining data on the location of the plot, types of needs, etc.
The solution sought should enable reporting and analysis of data on vehicle fleet usage, mileage card billing, including the use of RFID cards. It should operate in near real time.
We are looking for solutions that will allow technical teams to quickly and efficiently recover from overhead line damage caused by high winds. As part of the challenge, we are looking for both innovative, portable infrastructure components that can be deployed in an emergency mode, as well as process automation and analytical or recommendation tools to increase the speed of restoring power supply to customers.
We are looking for solutions to track and supervise logistics streams, both in terms of order execution by the company's subcontractors and in terms of deliveries to logistics centres and/or customers. The tool should provide the possibility of reporting adverse events, deviations from delivery schedules.

Water in industrial processes

In order to continuously improve energy efficiency, we are looking for solutions that use turbines placed inside gravity sewer systems to generate electricity.
In order to meet the highest environmental standards, we seek solutions that enable real-time monitoring of the content and type of pollutants in wastewater.
In order to optimise water management and reduce water consumption, we are looking for advanced tools to accurately monitor flows and detect leaks in water and wastewater systems. We are also looking for tools to monitor the technical condition of these installations.

Modern Client and the Fuel Station of the Future

We are looking for solutions that will allow us to use robots in the process of servicing our customers in the whole spectrum of sales formats (including the area of food service, product dispensing, support at the distributor).
PKN ORLEN is looking for partners with whom it will be able to expand its service portfolio with new products and services complementary to its existing offer. We are looking for solutions that can translate into high sales volumes or above-standard margins.
The solutions sought should ensure the possibility of efficient integration of wind energy into the energy mix of PKN ORLEN fuel stations, taking into account structural and surface limitations of the infrastructure.
As part of the challenge, we are looking for a startup that will provide PKN ORLEN with support for the entire logistics value chain of using drones to transport shipments between designated locations (both in the urban area and long-distance flights)
Solutions to complement the portfolio with modern value added services and products for customers in the Agritech/Smart Farming/Embedded Agriculture area.

Green transformation and environmental protection

The tool sought should be able to monitor the micro PV grid, report on the status of grid operation and record events and disturbances. It should take into account the widest possible range of variables, as well as the results of the above-mentioned events.
The solution sought should provide comprehensive support for photovoltaic panels, energy storage and home electric vehicle charging stations. Through an intuitive interface, it should allow the creation of customised energy management plans, also referring to energy pricing and trading opportunities.
We are looking for solutions to maximise value creation from biomass, including carbonisation and the use of combustion waste (slag and ash). The solutions sought should realise the objectives of green energy and a closed loop economy.
Identification of the type of damage on wind turbine blades and external components, including nacelle or tower casing. The solution should distinguish between deep and surface damage.
Analysis and identification of failures of rotating parts inside the nacelle on wind turbines. Provision (if possible) of additional functions for complex support of maintenance work (communication with technical team, reporting of damage type).
We are looking for solutions to reduce the carbon footprint along the entire production process and to capture, store and reuse CO2.
We are seeking solutions for the use of low-temperature heat in production processes with a view to improving technology and production efficiency.
