(WO) – Akselos S.A., Yinson Production EPC Pte Ltd., and Enauta have signed a multi-year contract to deploy Akselos' digital twin technology on the ABS-classed Atlanta FPSO in Brazil's Santos basin. The project marks the first collaboration between the three companies and marks a significant milestone for the industry in deploying a field-proven digital solution to increase safety, enhance operational efficiency, and optimize lifecycle asset management.

Akselos' digital twin RB-FEA technology is 1000x faster than legacy simulation solutions and allows for limitless scale and accuracy. This will enable the Enauta team to fully integrate the engineering real-time simulation into a real operational life environment. It is a step-change enhancement of real-time asset integrity management of the FPSO integrated with its Hull Monitoring System, promising enhanced safety and in-depth structural insights.

Ricardo Portella, Project Engineer at Enauta said, “Being able to monitor asset integrity in real time is a key objective for us when selecting our structural health monitoring partner for the Atlanta FPSO. Akselos’ gave us confidence in its unique capability to deliver a reliable structural digital twin.”
