Industrial Asset Management

Smart Assets, Digital and Integrated Operations, and Condition monitoring and Maintenance Analytics.

Published Updated on

Reliability, operability, maintainability, and integrity characteristics of any industrial asset (i.e. production plants, process facilities, energy production and distribution systems, machines and equipment, infrastructure and civil structures, etc) have large effects on Economics, Safety & Security, as well as Environmental impact in almost all Industrial sectors. Those issues become even more critical when Industry 4.0, Digitalization, and Green transition change the future of Industrial assets.

Our Applied research related to Reliability, Operability, Maintainability, and Integrity issues targets various sectors including Energy production and distribution (Oil & Gas, Offshore wind, New energy sources, etc.), Process industry, Manufacturing and Production, Infrastructure and Civil structures, as well as the Public sector.

Our contribution mainly comes through three R&D tracks:

  • Smart Assets and Maintenance Engineering
  • Digital and Integrated Operations
  • Smart Maintenance: Processes, Systems and Analytics

By doing so, our continuous ambition is to collaborate with Industrial sectors and other R&D partners to jointly develop Assets-driven future solutions to comply with UN Sustainable goals.
