“Selecting FPT Corporation to become the first strategic partner in Asia is in the strategic direction of the Schneider Electric Group and also meets the needs of Industry 4.0,” said Vice President of the Schneider Electric Group, Mr. Luc Remont. “EcoStruxure has brought benefits not only to Schneider Electric but also to its partners around the world, including FPT in Vietnam. We believe the solution will provide tremendous growth in technology and economy for Vietnamese enterprises during Industry 4.0.”

“The agreement is part of FPT’s journey in partnering with world-leading corporations in IoT technology platforms and in becoming one of the leading corporations in the world in digital transformation services in the next five years,” FPT Chairman Mr. Truong Gia Binh said. “FPT is ready to implement the EcoStruxure technology platform, helping Vietnamese organizations and businesses efficiently manage energy.”

FPT is one of the first strategic partners of Schneider Electric in Asia to implement and use the EcoStruxure platform, an open and interactive IoT platform helping organizations and enterprises optimize the use and management of energy in buildings, data centers and manufacturing plants.

With experience from cooperating and implementing IoT technology platforms for leading corporations such as Airbus, Siemens, and GE, and a skilled workforce, FPT will join forces with Schneider Electric, a leading corporation in digital energy management and automation, to develop applications and solutions based on the EcoStruxure technology platform.

The EcoStruxure platform’s maintenance software, application programming interfaces (APIs), and cloud solutions, which integrate advanced operation technologies, will be enhanced, enabling organizations and businesses to optimize energy management processes and automation in the smart city development process. The solution is applicable to high-rise buildings, households, food and beverage industries, hospitals, hotels, sewage treatment centers, data centers, telecommunications, oil and gas, and electricity and water supply. This strategic cooperation strongly promotes and satisfies the demand for digital transformation of organizations as well as individuals in Industry 4.0.

Along with cooperation and development, FPT will support Schneider Electric Vietnam to train human resources with expertise in the EcoStruxure platform, with the aim of training 200 qualified consultants by 2020. These experts will inherit and promote the technological achievements of the EcoStruxure platform.

According to the MoU, both sides will consider using the EcoStruxure technology platform to manage and operate the entire power system of the F-Town 3 office complex in Ho Chi Minh City, making the complex become the first smart tower in Vietnam.

F-Town 3 has a construction scale of over 52,000 sq m, making it the largest software center at a high-tech park in District 9 in Ho Chi Minh City, providing work spaces for 7,500 employees.

FPT has been working on developing IoT technology platforms with leading corporations in the field of Aerospace & Aviation, Industrial Manufacturing, and Energy, among others.

For example, with Airbus, FPT provides about 500 programmers with the expertise to develop solutions improving aviation industry performance based on the Skywise platform. Both sides will invest in providing third-party APIs to develop applications on Skywise, digital transforming, and maintaining applications on the Skywise platform.

As a strategic partner, FPT is also working with Siemens to provide Siemens’ MindSphere Digital Transformation services to organizations in the Asia-Pacific region and Europe.
