Aker Solutions has entered into a collaboration with software company Cognite for use of digital technology to make offshore assets more efficient.

The energy services firm will use Cognite’s industrial data platform to analyse large volumes of information from installations

It combines information from systems ranging from sensors to maintenance logs which Aker says will help reduce costs and improve performance.

Astrid Onsum, chief digital officer at Aker Solutions, said: “Capturing and organizing large volumes of complex industrial data is crucial to realizing the full potential of digital technologies.

“Cognite’s data platform will enable us more rapidly to provide even better products and services for our customers.”

Aker says the collaboration is part of a vision towards automated field development and engineering.

Dr. John Markus Lervik, chief executive officer of Cognite, said: “Aker Solutions is known for its early adaptation of technology and innovative engineering. By combining our deep software competence with Aker Solutions’ leading engineering expertise and domain knowhow, we will bring new value to the market globally.”
