Global digital services leader Asset Information Services (AIS), a James Fisher company, today announces multiple new developments in the Americas which will help to deliver leading edge digital services to energy customers throughout the region, breaking down the barriers to digital adoption.
With ever tightening turnaround project schedules and broader production pressures, asset owners and operators need to see faster time to value for the creation of new, and updates to existing, digital tools, including digital twin asset models. Responding to this demand, AIS is continuing to scale its regional footprint with the careful selection, training, and investment in experienced partners based in the Americas.
AIS recently completed another intake of a new professional services partner into its training program. This training covers the use of photogrammetric technology, which enables energy customers predominantly in the Americas, to benefit from added flexibility and availability for on-site data capture resulting in faster project completion.
In July, AIS’ Channel Partner Manager, Martín Luna Rivera, together with partner SV360, pushed forward with approved plans to roll out digital twin services to a National Oil Company (NOC) and the broader supply chain. This digitisation of the NOC’s asset suite is resulting in significant cost savings and facilitating remote work across the region.
Trinidad, Suriname, and Guyana
Earlier this month, the AIS team delivered five digital twin models to a global International Oil Company (IOC), enabling systematic improvements in remote planning, turnaround (TAR) preparation and planning, and other critical processes. The deployment in the region has resulted in the creation of a regional partnership – allowing for the expedited installation and implementation of global technology in local sites, enhanced via local delivery.
Catriona Johnston, Global Account Manager, AIS says:
“The Americas market is one of the more technologically advanced globally, however there’s a huge technological gradient across both the individual assets in the market, and within an operator's portfolio. As such, the pressure to take advantage of the newest technologies is high; but these can be challenging to adopt - especially at scale.
At AIS, we are no strangers to technology adoption and pride ourselves in breaking down barriers for our local market partners. With our enhanced in-market presence, users have flexible access to a multi-disciplinary reality data-capture team who are ready to deploy with the very latest equipment and techniques to provide an unrivalled service.”
Martín Luna Rivera, Channel Partner Manager, AIS says:
“We continue to expand in the Americas to support our local and international clients to achieve their digital ambitions and remain competitive in their space through improving digital workflows, enabling remote collaboration, improving shutdown and turnaround times, and driving down costs from their businesses. As always, our company ethos is to work hand in hand with high quality local partners, delivering a joined-up service to our clients, while simultaneously supporting local young professionals to enter the energy industry in the digital space.”
This announcement follows AIS’ recent expansion in APAC, the Middle East, West Africa and Latin America, and marks the next stage in its global journey to improve and enhance digital uptake across the energy industry.
