ASKER, Norway – Kongsberg Digital will digitalize the Nyhamna facility in western Norway which serves as the gas processing and export hub for Ormen Lange and other fields connected to the Polarled pipeline.

A/S Norske Shell, as operator of Ormen Lange and technical service provider at Nyhmana, will work with Kongsberg to develop a digital twin of the facility on behalf of operator Gassco, based on an open and collaborative business model.

Under the NOK100-million ($11-million) contract Kongsberg will apply the Kognifai Dynamic Digital Twin to create a dynamic virtual representation of the gas plant and its behavior, and this will be continuously updated with information from various sources to reflect the status of the facility in real time.

“With the digital twin we expect new insights that we can leverage to further improve the productivity, reliability, and performance of the gas facility,” said Agnete Johnsgaard-Lewis, managing director of A/S Norske Shell.

The first stage of the delivery is due this fall.
