Singapore-based Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) has been awarded Approval in Principle by DNV for its proprietary AssetCare system. This consists of a range of digital services to support assets over their lifecycle.
The AiP follows an earlier commitment by DNV and Keppel O&M. In April 2020, they signed a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate on digital system development. The project was aimed at improving efficiency in both the design and construction processes, as well as the provision of lifetime support services for offshore and marine assets.
During the AiP process, DNV found that the AssetCare system met the classification society’s requirements both for assets in service as well as the suppliers of condition monitoring systems on ships and offshore plant. AssetCare, and its data collection setup, therefore qualified for DNV’s class notation, D-INF – Data Collection Infrastructure and Vessel Connectivity. The AiP also found that AssetCare services provide the basis for existing and new assets to quality for new DNV Smart notation.
Managing director (New Builds) at Keppel O&M, said: “As a world leader in providing sustainable solutions to the offshore, marine and energy industries, we are at the forefront of harnessing technologies to support our customers in meeting their assets’ lifecycle needs. Our AssetCare system will be a key enabler in the digitalisation of assets and processes that can improve efficiency and advance the energy transition.”
