SAP SE and DNV GL have teamed up to deliver a new industry cloud solution, Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) Manager, designed to tackle a major problem facing the integrity of oil and gas plants.
CUI is seen as one of the largest maintenance costs for offshore and onshore installations with insulated pipes.
According to DNV GL, Corrosion Under Insulation Manager is one of the latest industry cloud solutions built and run on the open SAP Cloud Platform.
“In collaboration with DNV GL, we will deliver the first industry cloud solution for the oil and gas industry,” said Benjamin Beberness, SAP Oil and Gas Business Unit global vice president.
Collaborating with the industry, DNV GL said it has developed a new risk-based methodology, published a new recommended practice, and turned the insights into an easy-to-use interface with the CUI Manager.
"Through the strength of DNV GL’s models and the integration with SAP Asset Intelligence Network and the SAP Asset Strategy and Performance Management application, this solution will provide an efficient and standardized way to address the risk of CUI," DNV GL, soon to be called just DNV, said.
Describing how the solution works, DNV GL said: "CUI Manager continuously assesses and calculates the CUI risk, helping integrity engineers and managers prevent failure, increase safety and manage hidden threats. It optimizes asset strategy and planning by providing detailed, instant insights on current and planned risk as well as the resulting cost development. The solution’s full integration with SAP Asset Strategy and Performance Management enables calculation and visualization of the complete risk picture using SAP Cloud Platform."
“The combination of DNV GL’s deep technical insight and state-of-the-art software solutions with SAP’s cloud-based solutions for intelligent asset management will generate significant value for our customers,” said DNV GL - Oil & Gas, CEO, Liv A. Hovem. “We look forward to bringing additional solutions to the market jointly with SAP in the near future.”
