Apollo, the Aberdeen
headquartered, engineering and project service provider, has been backed by the
Oil & Gas Technology Centre to introduce technology that will help unlock
the potential of the North Sea.
Apollo KnowHow™ is a cloud based data management solution that allows operators to plan, inspect and report/review all integrity and associated data. The Centre’s investment allows rapid development of the existing tool into other areas of asset integrity management, allowing operators to break down barriers and overcome legacy data issues.
Jonathan White, Business Development Director, Apollo, said: “Apollo has been working closely with the Centre for a number of months to further understand the challenges in overcoming data silos and non-usable data within industry. We’re developing the road map for KnowHow™ which will allow operators to have better visibility of their assets, in real time and allow them to future-proof their data collection and management. 2017 has been our best year so far for Apollo and coupled with the project backing, this really allows KnowHow™ to take off!”
Douglas Sinclair, Technical Software Manager, Apollo, said: “Apollo KnowHow™ is designed to help clients manage their asset integrity efficiently by allowing operators to inspect and maintain all equipment types from one data source. The Centre understood the antiquated methods of managing data in different silos whether topside, subsea or pressure systems. Apollo KnowHow™ manages them all and then some. We have already deployed KnowHow™ to three clients in the UKCS with significant interest from other major operators”
Rebecca Allison, Asset Integrity Solution Centre Manager, the Oil & Gas Technology Centre, said: “This project is the first step in digitising the offshore worker and we’re confident it can deliver significant efficiency improvements. We look forward to working with Apollo to develop KnowHow™ further and getting it deployed in the field.”
