Sergio Tuberquia, the CEO and founder of equipcast, joins us to discuss their product, Digi Engineer, which addresses the energy skills gap using advanced technology.

By combining proprietary algorithms, modeling capabilities, and generative AI, Digi Engineer matches subject matter expertise with asset data to enhance operational understanding and decision-making. The platform utilizes real-time data from sensors to provide insights and alerts related to asset performance. Inputs can be anything already used by operators from temperature and pressure to vibration and the weather. It enables field operators to make more informed decisions, optimize resource allocation, and improve safety.
