("Lamprell" and with its subsidiaries the "Group")






Akselos, a market leader in Digital Twin solutions and Lamprell, a leading provider of fabrication, engineering and contracting services to the offshore and onshore oil & gas and renewable energy sectors have signed an exclusive Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). 


Under the terms of the MoU, Lamprell will be able to offer its customers a unique solution combining Akselos' high-fidelity finite element solutions with Lamprell's EPCI capabilities and innovative digital solutions in the asset integrity space.  This will cater for clients predominantly in the MENA region as well as Lamprell-managed projects worldwide. 


Christopher McDonald, Chief Executive Officer for Lamprell said: 

"This represents another exciting step in our digital journey.  Asset integrity is critical to the energy industry and what we can offer with Akselos through their Digital Twin capability will provide a level of predictability that is state-of-the-art.  Further, this collaboration complements our previously announced partnership with Injazat, (wholly owned by Mubadala Investment Company), where we are also working on a portfolio of technology-enabled digital ventures to create value for target customers, primarily in the MENA region."


Thomas Leurent, Chief Executive Officer for Akselos, said:

"Lamprell's deep expertise in offshore industries and its commitment to accelerating the energy transition makes the company an ideal partner for Akselos.  They are digitally forward-thinking and have a clear vison for what we can achieve together, as well as the value this partnership can bring to the energy sector.  Our patented technology is based on a mathematical breakthrough that has led to near real time simulations of limitless scale - something far more sophisticated than a conventional digital twin."


Akselos, with its five international hubs, was founded as an MIT start-up in 2012, where its core technology was developed over 15 years in the technology institution's mechanical engineering lab.  The company has created the world's fastest and most advanced engineering simulation technology; helping leading organisations protect large and complex assets with real-time structural digital twins, called Digital Guardians.
