How Cognite Data Fusion® streamlined maintenance work for Wintershall Dea

Wintershall Dea used DataOps provided by Cognite, including Cognite Data Fusion®, to provide a holistic overview of maintenance work and highlight priorities and opportunities.

The solution saves Wintershall Dea's experts an estimated 10 hours a week.

Challenge

Provide a holistic overview of maintenance opportunities

Wintershall Dea’s history stretches back more than a century. Today, the company searches for and produces natural gas and crude oil on four different continents.

With so many installations, pipelines, vehicles, and other assets to keep track of, it can sometimes be challenging to take a step back from all the maintenance work going on within the company and analyze larger trends, such as the frequency of issues like corrosion, how often a particular component breaks down, and how much the company is spending on corrective versus preventive maintenance.

Solution

All relevant data in one place

Cognite liberated data about work orders from Wintershall Dea’s computerized maintenance management system, collecting it in Cognite Data Fusion® and visualizing it an easy-to-use Power BI dashboard.

The dashboard aggregates factors that cause equipment failure, reliability metrics, and detailed cost breakdowns, providing a holistic overview of maintenance work at the company’s installations.

By analyzing historical maintenance data about the main and subsystems of different installations, the company can more easily draw conclusions about the reliability of its assets, improving its maintenance routines and optimizing production.
