GLASGOW, UK – Aker Solutions (Oslo Børs:AKSO) has acquired UK-based International Design Engineering And Services (I.D.E.A.S).

The Scottish company has developed software and technology designed to improve the quality and accuracy of integrity and lifetime analysis for oil and gas assets. Analysis can be applied through all phases of an installation’s development, from design through construction, operation, and life extension.

Tore Sjursen, head of Aker Solutions’ maintenance and modifications business, said the technology would strengthen the group’s asset integrity management service.

“It can be used to predict the lifetime of an installation in a more effective manner. It also helps us plan more targeted maintenance and inspection activities, and increases the quality and precision of our services.”
