ONE-Dyas is the largest private upstream oil and gas company in the Netherlands. In 2017 ONE-Dyas, together with partners Hansa Hydrocarbons and EBN, discovered the cross border N05-A gas field and is currently in the process of developing the field. The N05-A field will host a fully automated, remotely controlled offshore gas facility. They requested MaxGrip to assist with the development of the maintenance strategy, vision and requirements to an Industry 4.0 level that fits the ambitions. The goal is to minimize lifetime cost, optimize production, and achieve near-zero emissions without harming the environment.

“For our N05 project, the first electrified platform powered by wind in the Netherlands, we were assisted by MaxGrip. They have a similar vision and similar ambitions as ONE-Dyas. We were both eager to realize an autonomous platform like the N05. MaxGrip has contributed to the initial ideas and I am excited about working together towards a sustainable future as part of the energy transition .”

– Peter Nieuwenhuijze, COO at ONE-Dyas –


The existing maintenance strategy had to be adapted to work for the N05-A plan of full automation and remote operations. MaxGrip developed a strategy based on interviews with internal stakeholders from all relevant disciplines, combined with their experience and available documentation.

It was clear from the start that for automated process control to be a success, production and maintenance needed to work together seamlessly. We defined six important areas for success, challenges and plotted how the different departments were involved.

With the requirement of control of the subsurface reservoir, platform process towards pipeline export specifications with minimal unplanned intervention possible, it was essential to come to an optimization of the maintenance strategy including prescriptive maintenance templates.

MaxGrip also developed and added a detailed roadmap to the ONE-Dyas Project Maturation Process.


  • A process control strategy for Maintenance and Operations combined ;
  • This strategy promotes and realizes full internal alignment between the Operations and Maintenance departments;
  • A detailed roadmap which can also function as a blueprint for future developments.

Though condition-based maintenance and predictive maintenance have some overlap, they are not technically the same.
