Case Study – OMV

Schedule Management Implementation

VisoTech was the only provider that could inherently cover the complex requirements of the market with its schedule management solution, as well as flexibly cater to our own requests. The excellent climate of trust and cooperation must in particular be emphasised.

Franca Heinrici
Head of Logistics
OMV Trading GmbH

The Challenge

In 2009 OMV made the decision to restructure their energy trade in order to orient the department more towards integrated gas and power trading. A fundamental requirement was a software solution that could cover schedule management against the background of the new central business model of “asset-backed trading“.

VisoTech‘s Solution

As the Austrian market leader in scheduling systems, and having completed reference projects of a comparable scale and similar complexity, VisoTech emerged as a promising partner for the project implementation from the beginning. Periotheus is distinguished in particular by the countless markets and formats that are inherently supported. The ability to easily expand the system to include additional markets and a modular construction were significant for the subsequent decision.

The Result

By using the Periotheus Schedule Management it was possible to clearly present the structure of the cross-market and transnational commodity trade within the system, despite its complexity and the multitude of parameters. The implementation of schedule management, as well as the gradual expansion to include further markets, was successfully executed in the planned time frame and in compliance with the planned costs.

Particular attention should be brought to the flexibility of Periotheus, which allowed the successful deployment of changes and updates inevitable for a project of this magnitude and complexity. Since its implementation in 2009, VisoTech‘s schedule management system has constantly expanded together with increasing trading volume and the increased demands from OMV. This not only covers the number of transactions processed in the system, but also additional functions and performance features that have ensured that, since the system‘s launch, it can keep pace with business development and expansion and still constitutes an up-to-date and reliable tool.

Schedule Management Implementation

The joint project with the OMV was predestined to demonstrate the flexibility of Periotheus. We
are pleased that we could use the opportunity to contribute our knowledge of the energy industry.

Case Study – VERBUND

Production Data Management System


In 2014 VERBUND made the decision to replace the existing main dispatcher information system. The requirements for this new software solution were extremely complex. A series of existing systems had to be replaced and several existing external systems had to be integrated.

VisoTech‘s Solution

On account of the longstanding positive cooperation with VERBUND AG, VisoTech was an auspicious partner for the implementation of the project. In order to accommodate the special requirements for a production data management system, an expansion of the Periotheus Suite was specified and subsequently implemented within the framework of a development cooperation.


As a result of the development cooperation between VERBUND and VisoTech, a new function was added to the Periotheus Suite – Power Plant Management. Based on this standardised solution, VERBUND could cover all of the extensive requirements of the production data management system, which succeeded in replacing several existing systems and applications and integrating Periotheus into the existing system environment.

Using Periotheus Power Plant Management, the system displayed the management of production data from power plants in a clear structure and in all their complexity with their wide range of influencing factors. The joint specification of power station management, as well as the subsequent gradual implementation and integration, was successfully carried out within the planned time frame and in compliance with the planned costs.

Taking into account the requirements and using our experience, VisoTech has managed to expand the software solution to include power station management, which has actually exceeded our expectations. In particular the good usability and flexible connectivity with other systems should be emphasized.

Case Study – VERBUND

Production Data Management System


VERBUND is Austria‘s leading electricity company and one of the largest producers of hydroelectric power in Europe. More than ninety percent of its electricity is generated from hydroelectric power. VERBUND has a market share of around 7 percent in the small consumer segment, whilst the company is the leader in the industrial sector with roughly 20 percent. VERBUND trades in power in 12 countries and in 2014 achieved a yearly turnover of 2.8 billion Euros with around 3,000 employees. Including its subsidiary companies and partners, VERBUND is active in industries from electricity generation, through transport, to international trading and sales.

In 2013, with approximately 3,000 employees, VERBUND achieved an annual turnover of 3.2 billion Euros, as well as a group result of 580 million Euros. VERBUND was founded in 1947 and has been listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange since 1988; 51 % of the company’s shares are owned by the Republic of Austria. By 2018, VERBUND plans to invest 1.5 billion Euros in wind farms, grids and efficiency improvement of existing hydroelectric power plants.


  • Austria’s leading electricity company
  • One of the largest producers of hydroelectric power in Europe
  • More than four fifths of its electricity is produced by hydroelectric power, supplemented by thermal and wind power
  • VERBUND power plants cover 40% of annual electricity consumption iin Austria
  • Trades electricity in 12 countries
  • Turnover: 3.2 billion Euros | 3,000 employees | EBIT: 580 million Euros

Thanks to positive cooperation, we could perfectly reproduce the complex requirements from VERBUND within the development of Periotheus. With this project we once again managed to prove the great flexibility of Periotheus.
