Prevas signs agreement with Argeo AS

With a view to achieving its long-term objectives of international growth, profitability, reliability and control, Argeo inquired on the market in January about an EAM/ERP solution that could meet their need for process support. Following extensive rounds of questions and answers, an agreement was signed with Prevas in April 2022. On implementing a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) based on the HxGN EAM (formerly Infor EAM) solution. This was done to verify that the solution would cover both current and future needs.

The solution was configured for selected processes before the summer. Prevas can now happily confirm that Argeo is moving forward with HxGN EAM as its solution for management, maintenance, purchasing and logistics. And with Prevas as supplier. Implementation of the solution will be launched this fall, and it is expected to go live well before the New Year.

“We have already been collaborating closely with Argeo on a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) this spring," says Einar Alexander Andersen, President of Prevas AS. “Our consultants have extensive experience in providing assistance and advice on HxGN EAM. It’s very exciting for us to be part of Argeo's ambitious journey ahead. Prevas is seeing great demand for its expertise in HxGN EAM and, this year, we have hired several new employees who are consolidating our leading position on this platform in the Nordic region."

Argeo’s mission is to transform the ocean surveying and inspection industry by utilizing autonomous surface and underwater robotics solutions. Equipped with unique sensors and advanced digital imaging technology, these autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) will significantly increase efficiency and imaging quality. While they also contribute to substantially reduced CO2 emissions for this type of activity that the global industry stands for and that the company operates within. The company’s digital models and digital twin solutions are based on geophysical, hydrographic, and geological methods from shallow water to the deepest oceans for market segments in the Infrastructure, Offshore Wind, Oil & Gas, and Deep-Sea Minerals sectors.

“Argeo has made an important platform choice through the acquisition of the EAM solution from Hexagon. The agreement with Prevas will contribute to better management and control of our operational activities”, according to Ronny Bøhn, COO of Argeo.
