Siemens and Aker Solutions have signed a strategic collaboration agreement to further develop digital offerings in engineering, operations and services, the company said on Dec. 3.
The collaboration focuses on the creation of software applications and joint service offerings including the development of industrial digital twins that will drive efficiency throughout the entire plant lifecycle. In addition, the companies will further develop specific offerings for the oil and gas sector based on Siemens’ Comos engineering platform. These solutions will help customers to reduce engineering and operational cost and enable improved decision making.
The agreement builds on a long-standing, successful relationship between both companies by combining individual strengths and promoting joint offerings.
Aker Solutions will bring in its domain expertise and sector-specific digital offerings in field development, asset performance and integrity, while Siemens will provide a wide range of digital offerings for the process industries—ranging from automation equipment to software applications for engineering and simulation.
“We are excited to strengthen our existing relationship with Siemens,” Dean Watson, Aker Solutions’ COO, said. “By working together to develop and deploy advanced digital solutions, we will allow our customers to liberate data and solve important engineering challenges.”
