DNV Launches Synergi RBI Software

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

Managing onshore and offshore assets has previously demanded multiple risk-based inspection (RBI) software tools, increasing operator cost and reducing efficiency. With the new release of DNV Software’s Synergi Plant, which has integration with Synergi RBI, operators can use one complete quantitative risk assessment system, moving from subjective to objective decision making and from preventive to predictive maintenance.

DNV Software is now launching the new Synergi Plant, bringing RBI software to a new level, where integrity management of process plants and offshore topsides can be achieved by one complete and integrated solution through integration with Synergi RBI Onshore and Synergi RBI Offshore. It includes semi or fully quantitative RBI, inspection planning and packaging, inspection and measurement execution, notification of maintenance and a key performance index (KPI) dashboard.

“Recent accidents demonstrate the need for stricter regulatory requirements and more practical systems regarding risk management of onshore plants and offshore processes,” said DNV Software Managing Director Are Føllesdal Tjønn. “DNV Software’s plant integrity management solution allows operators to take full control of operation assets and identify equipment that needs to be inspected, repaired or replaced.”

Software for predictive maintenance

“Our customers are looking to move from qualitative to quantitative risk assessment,” said Tommy Tang, DNV Software’s regional AIMS business development manager in Asia Pacific and Middle East. “When integrity engineers and managers are moving from preventive to predictive maintenance, they need to know the condition of their assets to predict failures, especially for ageing assets, and link the engineering tools to enterprise resource planning system.”

To meet this demand, Synergi RBI Onshore and Synergi RBI Offshore deal with different damage mechanisms and risk calculation, and Synergi Plant aligns them to a common management and daily work process. The quantitative RBI software provides a flexible solution including different technical details for onshore and offshore damage mechanisms, seamless two-way integration with enterprise resource planning (ERP) and is integrated with a higher level all-asset risk dashboard.

Synergi Plant covers all stages of the integrity lifecycle. You can assess the equipment’s risk, manage and analyse inspection data, plan mitigation actions and follow-ups and re-assess risk based on inspection and measurement results. You can also take in operating data and compare with integrity operating windows using an enhanced web interface.

Focus on a risk-based approach

“More integrity engineers and managers are realising they still need an asset integrity management system, even if they already have their ERP system for work execution,” Tang said. “The focus on a risk-based approach and asset integrity workflow management are the key in achieving optimized predictive maintenance for their sites.”

Synergi Plant comes with an evergreening plan-do-check-act (PDCA) cycle. Together with DNV’s other integrity management software such as Synergi Pipeline, Synergi Structure, and a high level dashboard, asset integrity can be managed for all company production assets.
