Siemens will deliver advanced digital solutions for Aker BP’s future field development projects as part of a long-term partnership between the two companies focused on the design, supply and installation of electrical, instrumentation, control and telecom systems – from the preliminary phase to first oil. The framework agreement, one of several recently announced, builds on Siemens’ existing work for Aker BP providing data-driven condition monitoring on the Ivar Aasen offshore project.  

“Our goal is to work more efficiently alongside the suppliers, as well as to minimize the total time it takes to deliver the final product,” said Olav Henriksen, senior vice president Projects, Aker BP. “We want to work as one integrated team and with the same incentives to reduce costs and to remove non value added activities.”

“We welcome the opportunity to continue our work with Aker BP, providing digital solutions that reduce project execution time, thereby reducing costs,” said Richard Jaros, head of offshore solutions, Siemens. “Our goal is to deliver state-of-the-art digital solutions to the alliance, encompassing project planning and execution, process control, integrated operations, condition based maintenance and lifecycle management of new facilities.”
