Norsk Hydro, a global supplier of aluminium and aluminium products, has gone live with the Brady Energy Market Databank. The databank solution enables Hydro to locally store historical forward curves, market, weather and production data from external data feeds and in-house models. Hydro is a participant in the European energy markets.
Rønnaug Sagrov Mysterud, head of energy analysis in the business area energy in Hydro, said: “Hydro is delighted with the new solution, which was developed in close co-operation with us, sourcing data from the PointConnect data feed from Thomson Reuters Point Carbon and other internal and external sources. The new Excel interface makes it intuitive and easy to perform analysis on historical data from many sources. We are pleased with the speed of delivery and the co-operation with Brady during this project. We welcome new users for collaboration on further refining of the system.”
