Technical expertise in established and emerging technologies are critical success factors, as are the timely identification, development and/or acquisition of appropriate technologies. This allows us to deliver safe, environmentally sustainable and competitive outcomes that enhance the value and reputation of our business. Today, Bumi Armada’s Technology & Development specialists work closely with our Projects unit to meet the stringent requirements of function, class, safety, quality and flexibility demanded by our worldwide clientele in diverse regulatory regimes.
The T&D unit works together with the Projects and Sales units to provide guidance towards internal development of technologies, whilst also facilitating peer reviews of concept and basic designs prepared by the Projects and FPSO Sales teams. Besides harnessing innovation and value engineering, the T&D unit team patents the novel designs developed by the Projects unit. Moreover, it enables special projects to be rolled out for the development of innovative technologies such as high pressure swivels, topsides technologies and others. Our internal tie-ups enable us to also assess globally available technologies. These are geared to cover a wide range of topsides, turret, swivel and marine systems technologies that are applied to the design of floating solutions.
