AkerBP is putting to the test Lloyd's Register’s (LR) RTAMO (Real-Time Adaptive Maintenance Optimization) software for maintenance optimization of its Skarv FPSO infrastructure and equipment in Norway. AkerBP aims to optimize the criticality and cost of its maintenance activities. The software is a standalone cloud-based software-enabled service that is based on predictive algorithms linking planned maintenance to economic and reliability outcomes. It is intended to optimize inspection and maintenance intervals to avoid unnecessary maintenance and inspection as well as avoid production shutdown due to equipment failure. The software has achieved up to a 40% reduction in operational maintenance expenditure for certain operators, according to LR. This is the first time it will be used on fixed facilities on the Norwegian continental shelf. Recent maintenance optimization projects conducted using RTAMO on more than 20 offshore facilities for major international operators and mid-cap operators have delivered savings in their equipment and infrastructure maintenance costs. Projects have included Maersk, BG Group, Shell, Teekay, and Centrica storage.
