Breakthrough ideas to drive down the cost of owning subsea assets
Acteon partners with technology companies and academic institutions to develop strategic innovations that expand its capabilities and overcome unresolved subsea challenges. We focus on digital technologies, technology implementation and research and development advances as enablers of these breakthroughs, which aim to transform project economics and operational efficiency.
Acteon products, services and solutions cover a wide range of routine and customer-specific subsea tasks. However, the needs of established offshore sectors including oil and gas evolve and new sectors such as offshore renewable energy generation emerge.
To align our offerings with customers’ strategic needs in a changing market, we focus on understanding and developing the key enablers that have the potential to answer novel, long-term, industry-wide or regional subsea challenges. We apply them to creating innovative offerings that are neither evolutions nor combinations of existing solutions, products or services; rather, we devise them to meet customers’ strategic needs in an ever-changing market.
Acteon believes that partnering with its customers’ to share data, responsibilities, risks and rewards will bring improved returns for all the stakeholders. Strategic innovations are breakthrough ideas that generate value for our customers by bringing together the creativity and capabilities of all parts of our organisations and third-party partners. We develop them in collaboration with our customers and others that may include regulators, industry bodies and leaders in favoured enablers.
Experts from within our operating companies, led by the Acteon field life service team, drive partnership building and the creation and delivery of strategic innovations, which are typically offered through new pricing or commercial models such as target pricing or asset leasing.
Digital technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud-based resources have the potential to reduce the cost of operating subsea assets. Acteon operating companies are using them to make their own assets smarter and to enhance products and services for their customers.
Acteon’s operating companies are leaders in their own fields, but partnerships with niche technology developers have the potential to deliver value for Acteon and its customers. We continuously evaluate complementary new third-party technologies and are ready to use any that help us deliver better outcomes.
Research and development advances
Renewable energy and oil and gas businesses are operating in deeper water and harsher environments and must comply with increasingly stringent environmental standards. The resulting technical and commercial challenges require advances that can only be realised through investment in research and development.
