Engineering data handover from build to operations has been the subject of much handwringing in the past and has spawned a lengthy process of standards development that so far has failed to bring fruit. Norwegian independent oil company, Det Norske Oljeselskap, operator of the NOK 24.7 billion Ivar Aasen field has taken a more pragmatic approach, deploying a new ‘progressive handover solution’ (PHS) from UK-based Aveva.
PHS is said to ‘de-risk’ the transition of a new facility from construction to a client’s operations team. PHS is enabled by Aveva’s digital information hub, a portal based solution, where every physical asset has a corresponding digital representation. A reporting dashboard lets Det Norske’s EPC, Sembcorp Marine unit SOME, update and monitor information throughout the project. The result is a ‘streamlined handover from construction to operation with higher quality information.’
Aveva’s Ellinor Meling said, ‘The solution sees a shift from document-centered engineering to a focus on tags providing direct access to technical information. The solution is being extended notably with a link to SAP. The solution will also be used for ongoing operation and modifications’.
