Below is an abstract of the presentation to be give by Aker BP and Optilift. Read more about the talks on this link (in Norwegian).
The digitization project in Aker BP aims to achieve more effective and safer operations by automating critical work tasks. With the use of new technology, the number of unnecessary work tasks will be reduced, to free resources and hence increase the quality and efficiency of the tasks, and by this also maintaining a high level of safety. More effective work tasks means less pressure and reduced number of errors. This way digitization directly impacts the quality and safety of the execution of the tasks.
The technology development company Optilift AS has developed an advanced sensor technology that is mounted in the boom tip of the cranes. The technology enables safer and more effective lifting operations, including optimised logistics planning. Robot vision technology and artificial intelligence is used among others to automatically update where cargo is located when travelling between onshore base and offshore installation. This is performed without any tags, codes, letters or instrumentation on the containers. The technology is about to be tested by Aker BP at offshore installations Alvheim and Ivar Aasen, including Asco base in Tanager. Integrated planning and automatic tracking will reduce the number of time-consuming manual tasks, and the number of unnecessary cargo movements with be significantly reduced, representing an opportunity to save significant costs.
- Use of new crane system technology from VOCA subsidiary Optilift could lower numbers significantly, CEO argues.
The VOCA subsidiary Optilift AS has formed a strategic partnership with Alpa AS to offer stronger crane products and service to the market.
The Norwegian Research Council has granted VOCA and partners 13,1 MNOK to develop the next-generation logistical autonomy.
The VOCA Engine™ AI-technology platform could potentially be utilised in a vast array of fields and industries – not limited to the offshore crane and logistics industry.
On Thursday April 25th, Svein Harald Hetland from Aker BP and Torbjørn Engedal from Optilift will present the joint development project on remote control system for offshore cranes.
