The Hackweek is a 5-day hackathon where selected startups, developers and students test and adapt their novel digital solutions rapidly on a real-life dataset provided by Shell. Data parameters include: production volumes, power usage of equipment, export pipeline pressures, pressure set points along the plant, weather data from sensors and spot market data. Objectives are to present operational models for different scenarios (minimum environmental impact, maximal production etc.), build a predictive model for the power consumption on the plant, calculate optimal points, and provide recommendations on how to smoothen power offtake. During the HackWeek, you will be supported by experts from Shell, Technical University of Delft and YES!Delft. Also, workshops to sharpen your saw will be provided. On the final day, participants will demonstrate their ideas in the form of a minimum viable product. MVP’s will be evaluated by a Shell & YES!Delft jury based on predictive capabilities, optimization and visualization.
