As part of Stena AB, one of the largest family-owned companies in Sweden, Stena Drilling has a rich heritage.

But the contractor, which provides drilling units and related services for the oil and gas exploration and production industries, is also constantly looking to innovate and adopt new technologies.

Regarding digital transformation as a ‘strategic enabler’, it has worked with Cohesive since 2019 to ensure its assets are managed as effectively as possible, using the digital Maximo enterprise asset management (EAM) system.

Now, our partnership has moved into the next chapter, as we work together to implement the Maximo Application Suite (MAS) – a single, integrated platform that uses AI, IoT and analytics to optimise performance, extend asset lifecycles and reduce operational downtime.

Cohesive will be providing Stena Drilling with both implementation and advisory services for the upgrade of its existing Maximo system which is used as a core system across the company’s fleet.

The upgrade will include use of Cohesive’s data replication (CDR) and data utility (CDU) applications which helps our clients to eliminate downtime during upgrade and data migration processes.

Our CDR enables data to be distributed to remote offices and mobile workers – providing a corporate level quality of service where connectivity may be intermittent or unavailable, such as out at sea.

Stena Drilling will use our dedicated Cohesive Maximo Cloud to host the service, with Cohesive taking responsibility for all maintenance.

Martin Eklund, Asset Performance Superintendent at Stena Drilling, said: “One of the biggest benefits of working with Cohesive has been their understanding of our business and how we operate. Having a project team from similar backgrounds has been key to success.

“Committing to this upgrade would unlikely materialise without guarantees as to having the same professional core team as we had back in 2019. Maximo Application Suite will enable us to expand further in the powerful areas of Industry 4.0.”

Joe Cook, Senior Project Manager at Cohesive, said: “It has been a fantastic experience and a true pleasure working together with Stena Drilling on their Maximo journey since the implementation project in 2019.

“The working relationship we have is like no other and I’m excited to continue working with everyone at Stena Drilling to make the MAS upgrade another successful chapter in the Stena Drilling story.”

Our responsibilities will include technical workshops with the Stena Drilling team, full end-to-end testing of each vessel environment and heightened levels of support throughout the early stages of the ‘go live’ period.

Cohesive is a certified IBM Platinum Business Partner and the largest IBM Maximo implementer worldwide.

We have delivered many transformational EAM programmes to large, complex industrial organisations across the globe.

We were recently named as a ‘leader’ amongst the ten most prominent providers in our field in a report from Verdantix, the independent advisory and research group.

It gave us the top score in its ‘Green Quadrant’ (2.5/3.0) for our EAM software implementation capabilities and the top score (a perfect 3.0/3.0) for our capabilities in managing the ‘people and change’ aspects of digital transformation.
