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.
