Case Study Overview

Building a Digital twin specification: using wind energy to extract green hydrogen from seawater

What challenges does it solve?

The system needs to be able to provide continuous power to off-grid communities or offshore platform and as a result a digital twin is being developed in order to enable safe, unmanned and cost-effective solution for optimizing operations and managing maintenance.

What outcomes have you delivered?

DNV is driving the activity to identify the required Functional Elements in the Digital Twin and develop the specification for them according to DNV-RP-A204 – a “Recommended Practice” methodology for the Qualification and Assurance of a Digital Twin. Any defined Functional Element(s) needs to be able to enable safe, unmanned and cost-effective remote operation of the system. The deliverable includes a full specification for each identified functional element to be developed in the next project phase

What lessons have you learn that apply to future work?

The specification of any resulting digital twin will have significant impact:
-Enabling remote unmanned operation of the system
-Optimizing maintenance activities, operational costs and reducing HSE risks
-Optimizing production
-Ensuring stakeholder alignment
