Houston, Texas. May, 2023. | Antea, a global leader in risk-based asset integrity management (AIM) software with 3D digital twin, has forged a partnership G.R. Stucker & Associates (GRSA), a full-service, multi-discipline engineering company providing a complete range of services from design, construction and commissioning through to process safety management and risk based inspection (RBI) implementation. The partnership combines Antea’s next generation software solutions with GRSA’s engineering and consulting expertise to help operators achieve digital transformation in a scalable, cost-effective manner.
GRSA’s engineering expertise and owner operator experience make them uniquely qualified to guide plants as they digitalize asset data and mechanical integrity processes. Their engineers are equipped to develop the framework and procedural background that can drive practices once AIM software is implemented, as well as offer analysis on inspection results that come in. While RBI is a specialty of the company, GRSA also provides risk analysis options that do not require full RBI implementation – including assigning risk to equipment and evergreening the asset data.
Antea is a globally trusted provider of AIM and inspection data management software (IDMS) that utilizes 3D Point Cloud and Digital Twin for instant visualization of asset conditions. Antea RBI has been globally validated by major regulatory bodies and is congruent with API 580 and API 581. The company’s software helps companies bridge the gap between informational technology (IT) and operational technology (OT), creating a single collaborative database from which all departments can instantly access and contextually visualize real-time data. Antea’s technology for visualization supports the engineering expertise of GRSA, creating an end-to-end solution for operators.
Owner operators can leverage this partnership as a scalable, cost-effective means to achieve digital transformation – with expert guidance on establishing the correct procedural background and implementation of the most digitally advanced mechanical integrity (MI) technologies on the market. This in turn will reduce inspection and maintenance costs, promote longevity of equipment lifecycles, reduce onsite resource requirements, mitigate risk, and enable instant access to actionable intelligence for enhanced decision making.
“Alone, we can achieve great things, but together we can transform the Asset Integrity industry,” says Floyd Baker, Vice President of Antea Americas. “This partnership is a testament to the power of collaboration, enabling scalable digital transformation for mechanical integrity programs. Together, we pave the way for innovation and efficiency in ensuring the safety, integrity, and environmental responsibility of our customers.”
“Mechanical INTEGRITY. It’s the name of our game, both in skill and in our mission,” says Jared Williamson, P.E., Lead Mechanical Integrity Engineer for GRSA. “As engineering professionals, we are called on by the Code of Ethics, industry standards, and fundamental moral law to maintain integrity in everything we do. From detailed engineering analysis to basic risk classification… we deliver INTEGRITY. This partnership serves our commitment to providing the highest quality and reliability to our clients.”
