With their Digital Twin, Kongsberg Digital’s goal is to transform the energy sector. Halogen contributes as a strategic development partner to enable smarter, safer and more efficient operations.

Shane McArdle, Senior Vice President of KogniTwin at Kongsberg Digital talks about the development of their digital twin, in collaboration with Halogen. You also meet Halogens CEO, Lillian Olsen, and Head of Design and Deliverables, Leif Verdu-Isachsen.

Kongsberg Digital (KDI) is working with several clients in the energy sector to transform their ways of working across the value chain. KDI invited Halogen to be a strategic partner in developing Kognitwin, their own Digital Twin solution, all the way from developing an overarching product vision and demonstrating value, to delivering a scalable enterprise digital product, in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.

Smarter, safer, more efficient

Physical industrial installations are highly complex, with a lot of data generated and stored in different, isolated systems. Also, knowledge tends to exist in silos within the organisation. This leads to lack of common situational understanding, which again affects the workflow and safety of operations.

The Digital Twin, a complete digital representation of a physical asset, improves situational awareness, enables better information flow and allows for smarter and safer ways of working.

Understanding stakeholder value

Halogen works with KDI in an integrated and agile manner, on all levels of the organisation: sales, communication, product strategy and development. We are involved in all stages of product development; from uncovering value, to understanding specific user needs, to designing and testing user interfaces.

The designers are engaging with multiple stakeholders to understand what is valuable for them in their context. We design interaction philosophies and product features in a quick, iterative manner.

Transforming the energy sector

Kognitwin is already in use and is streamlining many work processes, reducing time spent on alignment and allowing knowledge to flow more evenly across organizations.

KDI's ultimate goal is becoming an important agent in the transformation of the energy industry. Halogen is a key collaborative partner in achieving this goal.
