Aker Solutions agreed on a collaboration with Cognite to accelerate the development of digital solutions.
agreed on a long-term collaboration with software company Cognite to accelerate the development of digital solutions that will drive major efficiencies through the entire life of an energy asset.
The energy services company will use Cognite's advanced industrial data platform to collect and analyze large volumes of data from offshore energy installations, providing solutions that will enable customers to make informed decisions about an energy asset at any stage of its lifetime. This will reduce costs, lower risks and improve performance.
Cognite's platform aggregates and structures vast amounts of data from all types of industrial systems ranging from real-time sensors to equipment hierarchies, maintenance logs, process diagrams and three-dimensional computer-aided design (3D CAD) models.
The collaboration with Cognite strengthens Aker Solutions' push to develop digital solutions that help integrate different parts of an oil & gas field with a clear vision toward automated field development and engineering, smart-products offerings and new services enablement.
The company also recently formed Software House, an internal initiative that will build on Aker Solutions' existing technology to develop new software products for energy assets.
