The cooperation provides the owner operators in the Benelux region an unprecedented possibility to connect asset performance and ERP systems with the engineering design base to offer one undisputed information source. This will allow owner operators to not only collect data but to interpret and use the information to enhance decision making, safety and productivity.

Jean-François Stephan, senior vice president Northwest and Southern Europe at Hexagon PPM, said, “Operations and maintenance can be seen as a chain of interconnected activities; however, the chain is only as strong as its weakest link. With this collaboration, we provide a strong O&M activity chain by providing true interconnectivity. We are proud to work with Lloyd’s Register and Dimensys on this initiative.”

Ton Wessels, Lloyd’s Register, senior business development and sales manager Europe, said, “One of the biggest challenges during the coming years will be how to manage aging assets in a proactive and predictive manner, based on their risk assessment. This could be done through an integrated integrity and safety management solution. One that is integrated into the enterprise software information system. It will only be effective when management of change is captured throughout the whole life cycle, and is based on integrated and high-quality data. We are happy to cooperate with Hexagon PPM and Dimensys Process & IT Consulting to create solutions that serve the whole asset life cycle, based on this vision and our integrated services.”

Paul Haagmans, Dimensys Business Consultants, principal consultant asset management, said, “Handling Aged & Critical Assets comes with an increased labor claim and Asset Management platforms need to become smarter to deal with data from multiple sources, find weak points, detect early failures and take sound decisions. It is our strong belief that companies will benefit from our joined forces – Lloyd’s Register, Hexagon PPM and Dimensys – in order to deal with the many challenges of the digital era.”
