The demand for renewable energy is booming, and all over the world offshore wind-farms are being built. As we transition into renewables, we encounter a fundamental shift in the principles guiding operations. The profit margins are much smaller - challenging optimization. Crews and parts are not on-site - challenging logistics and planning. We are weather dependent to a much higher degree - challenging planning and execution. And we are scaling up in both size and volume - challenging operational models and tools.
Equinor aims to be a leading company in the energy transition. Already they have established themselves as world-leading within both offshore wind and carbon capture & storage. In addition, solar energy and hydrogen are emerging markets within the organisation. But most importantly; They are including existing oil and gas assets in their ambition of becoming net-zero, taking a responsibility that we are happy and eager to support.
In August 2023 Dogger Bank will go into production. By then it will be the world’s largest offshore windfarm, with an installed capacity of 3.6GW and the capability of powering up to 6 million British homes. We are supporting Equinor in the digital product development of operation and maintenance tools for Dogger Bank. As an integrated part of an agile team, our main role is to define and design good insight-driven solutions in the opportunity space between people, data and technology.
Due to the team’s approach and work, Equinor have elevated the program, making it one out of two digital flag-ship initiative within Renewables. We are incredibly proud to be part of this historic journey
