These projects seek to achieve ever-greater efficiency, reliability and safety standards for our company, and advance the “art of the possible” for the industry.

In 2021, we at Enbridge will build on the innovative work described in these pages and on other initiatives, expanding our use of innovative technologies such as unmanned systems, machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

We also expect to undertake new investigations into the use of automation within the enterprise, new sensing technologies and new energy efficiency opportunities, as well as the use of robotic platforms for cleaning and inspection.

We will see continuing focus on advancing analytical models for integrity and non-integrity threats, and further efforts to unlock the value intrinsic in the data we capturestreamlining its collection and gaining deeper insights from data integration and machine learning.

Our potential is only limited by our imagination.
