Kongsberg Maritime Inc., the North American division of Kongsberg Maritime, and Stress Engineering Services (SES) have formed a strategic alliance.
The aim of the alliance is to better serve existing and new clients with cost effective engineering services and fully integrated technical solutions within offshore drilling and floating production systems.
Kongsberg Maritime and Stress Engineering Services will together improve and develop new functionality for the Kongsberg real time riser management system (RMS) with focus on riser and wellhead fatigue in addition to enabling improved efficiency of drilling and workover operations.
Stress Engineering Services will provide enabling technology such as their subsea vibration data loggers (SVDL) and realtime fatigue monitoring system (RFMS) to assess riser and wellhead fatigue.
Kongsberg Maritime and Stress Engineering Services will also cooperate in the area of floating production systems.
Kongsberg ‘s experience within the design and analysis of flexible riser and umbilical systems will be combined with SES’ riser expertise within floating production systems for both green field and brown field applications.
Jon Holvik, president, Kongsberg Maritime Inc. said: “We believe that together we can better leverage the unique competencies, technologies and products offered by Kongsberg and Stress Engineering Services to serve our clients with smarter and more cost-effective services and solutions.”
Chuck Miller, vice-president of Stress Engineering Services added: “By working with Kongsberg , we can together provide drilling system services that empower engineers to more efficiently make informed decisions in the ever-more challenging offshore drilling environments.”
