SBM Offshore, a global leader in offshore energy solutions, has unveiled its development of intelligent agents and data analytics to predict events and optimise asset performance. The company said its innovative solutions have continuously captured over 160 million time-series signal events per day from its operations throughout 2022.
“By leveraging this wealth of information, we have developed an unrivalled level of expertise that fuels our ability to deliver innovative solutions,” SBM Offshore announced via LinkedIn.
Addressing how it capitalises on its access to full asset lifecycle data, head of digital, Erica Cecchi said the company developed applications with the purpose to predict events and behaviors to maximise the performance of its fleet operations.
The intelligent agents developed by SBM Offshore act as sophisticated algorithms, capable of analysing complex data sets in real-time. These agents have the ability to identify patterns, detect anomalies, and predict potential issues or failures before they occur. By leveraging these predictive capabilities, SBM Offshore can proactively address maintenance needs, improve operational efficiency, and ensure optimal performance of its offshore assets.
General Manager of its Brazil location, Maurizio Serusi explained the programme is providing insights to SBM Offshore’s technical team – both onshore and offshore – “in order to make the right decisions to focus on integrity and reliability tasks and to create value for SBM Offshore and for our clients.”
The Dutch contractor is the builder of all Guyana’s floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels currently operating in the Stabroek Block – the Liza Destiny, Liza Unity, and soon, the Prosperity vessel. The fourth vessel – ONE GUYANA – is still under construction.
In total, SBM operates a fleet of 15 FPSOs globally.
