Gaz De France Norge AS Has Chosen Comos for Technical Asset Data Management and Maintenance Management of the New Gjøa Platfor

Gaz de France Norge AS is a wholly-owned affiliate of GDF SUEZ, present in Norway since 2001. The company is a partner in several fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, and the asset portfolio is growing. In 2010, Gaz de France Norge will become operator on the Gjøa field.
Comos will be used to manage all operational engineering, documentation and maintenance management tasks at Gaz de France Norge, especially in the operation of the Gjøa field.
Terje Overvik, Managing Director Gaz de France Norge:”Comos Industry Solutions GmbH won the contract after fending off fourteen other competitors during the initial and final tender rounds. Comos Industry Solutions came across as professional and reliable during the negotiations and their systems provided the best functionality to meet Gaz de France Norge's requirements. In fact, the technology and commercial teams unanimously decided to award the contract to Comos Industry Solutions.”
"The systems will contribute greatly to us meeting our goals in Integrated Operations," Operations Manager Kjell Ola Jørgensen explains.
With the new systems, the operational staff will be able to obtain all necessary information on their desktops without the need for manual interventions. This allows for faster, better and more precise decisions and solutions in daily operations.
Comos Industry Solutions will work closely with Gaz de France Norge to implement the new systems, and will also establish integration with other systems, third-party support and data import.
Stephan Rohleder, Managing Director Comos Industry Solutions: “We appreciate the recognition of this prestigious contract award allowing Gaz de France Norge to satisfy their workflow requirements and benefit from their investment in Comos. With this solution, Comos Industry Solutions and Gaz de France Norge are launching a new stage of Integrated Operations and will implement an operation and maintenance solution with embedded data consistency across the asset life cycle while putting the concept of the digital plant alive.”
“The Gaz de France Norge Integrated Operations solution is an excellent example for our leading position in products and solutions for environmental and climate protection”, outlines Ralf-Michael Franke, CEO of the Siemens Industrial Automation Systems business unit. “Siemens has the most comprehensive environmental portfolio worldwide, and the solution will help Gaz de France Norge in optimizing the use of valuable resources at the Gjøa field.
