Aker Solutions joins forces with Cognite in push to develop digital solutions

Aker Solutions has signed a long-term collaboration with software company Cognite for the development of digital solutions to improve efficiencies through the life of an energy asset.

Aker Solutions said on Friday that it would use Cognite’s advanced industrial data platform to collect and analyze large volumes of data from offshore energy installations.

That will, in turn, provide solutions that will enable clients to make informed decisions about an energy asset at any stage of its lifetime. According to Aker Solutions, this will reduce costs, lower risks, 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.”

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.

John Markus Lervik, CEO 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 know-how, we will bring new value to the market globally.”

“The collaboration with Cognite strengthens Aker Solutions’ push to develop digital solutions that help integrate different parts of an oil and gas field with a clear vision toward automated field development and engineering, smart-products offerings, and new services enablement,” the company said.

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.
