Wipro deploys blockchain solution for natural gas unit, Uniper


Wipro has now implemented a Blockchain-powered small scale liquefied natural gas trading or fulfillment platform for the German technology solutions giant, Uniper Global Commodities SE.

The blockchain solution was specifically built for the LNG for trucks subsidiary of Uniper called Liqvis.

As an emerging sector, ssLNG is primarily used as a fuel for heavy road transport such as marine projects, trucks, or in power generators that are offshore.

Executive Opinion

Dr. Grigory Shevchenko, Senior Account Manager Gas Supply and Origination, LNG Business Development, Uniper said, "Uniper’s strength is its customer-centricity, product creation and market development. Building upon that when we enter more downstream logistics-heavy markets, we encourage the use of innovative technologies to optimize our processes and operations. Blockchain will enable business volume growth without needing a lot of additional headcount to manage transactions. This will be true for us and our counterparts that will engage with Uniper through the paperless blockchain platform. The ssLNG trading platform provides for easy scalability and enhancements based on the growing marketplace. To achieve this, we jointly deployed the required building blocks such as security, distributed computing and node network."

Sarat Chand, Vice President and EMEA Utilities Business Head, Wipro Limited said, "We are delighted to build and implement the Small Scale LNG blockchain platform for Uniper and support their initiative to promote LNG as an advanced and environmentally friendly fuel alternative. The platform helps Uniper’s LNG-for-trucks subsidiary Liqvis ensure that LNG is always available when and where it is needed and achieve price security through Uniper’s long-term LNG supply contracts and seamless supply chain execution. This is a landmark partnership between Wipro and Uniper. Our Utilities ETRM business competency combined with industry leading blockchain expertise has enabled Uniper to modernize its trading platform, reduce friction, improve process efficiency and simplify settlements in business processes."
