AVEVA’s Progressive Handover Solution implemented at Norway’s largest independent oil company


AVEVA will support Det norske to improve quality and cut project time


AVEVA today announced that a brand new customer, Det norske oljeselskap ASA (Det norske), has begun deployment of AVEVA’s Progressive Handover Solution to manage Life Cycle Information for the high profile Ivar Aasen field project. The AVEVA solution allows Det norske to benefit from improved information quality within its projects and to reduce the time it takes to access key technical information.

AVEVA’s Progressive Handover Solution is made possible by AVEVA’s industry leading Digital Information Hub technology enabling Det norske to accept data from various sources, regardless of software system. By utilising dashboard reporting with its EPC, Det norske can monitor information that will be automatically and progressively updated throughout the project. The result is a streamlined handover from construction to operation with higher quality information.

‘The Life Cycle Information portal will contribute to converting the project from being document-centered to focus on tags’, said Ellinor Meling, responsible for implementing the AVEVA solution in Det Norske. ‘As the quality of the Life Cycle Information is improved during the project, approximately all technical information may be located directly from a tag. The solution will be gradually developed with new functionality being added, including inter alia integration with SAP. This is the solution that will be utilised in the Ivar Aasen project for operation and modifications’.

‘AVEVA has added Det norske to an already strong roster of major Owner Operator customers’, said Jan Edvin Pedersen, Head of Enterprise Asset Management, AVEVA. ‘By selecting AVEVA’s Progressive Handover solution they can have absolute confidence in the integrity of its project data and a clear strategy for handover. It will save time and reduce the risk as information will be correct at every stage of the project. We have seen a number of customers realise handover cost savings of up to 85%.’  

Det norske has installed the following AVEVA products:
AVEVA NET Workhub and Dashboard™, AVEVA NET Gatekeeper™, AVEVA TIM Analyser™, AVEVA Information Standards Manager™ (AVEVA ISM), AVEVA NET Data Extractor Gateway™, AVEVA NET PDMS Gateway™, AVEVA PDMS™.
