A collaborative platform ensuring efficient data flow, governance and transparency


The new digital SPIR solution is a collaborative platform between operators, contractors and suppliers, to ensure efficient data flow, governance, and transparency between all entities in the SPIR process

SPIR, (“Spare Parts and Interchangeability Record”) is ensuring spare part recommendations for projects, modifications and operations.

The SPIR process consists of activities from Operators, Contractors, and Suppliers, and needs to be delivered to support repair- and maintenance strategy for equipment units.

This is currently an ongoing project with participants from Operators, Contractors, and IT developer,  whom are specifiying functional requirements, supporting application development, as well as performing testing activities.

By shifting from the traditional SPIR process using excel sheets, operators, contractors and suppliers can;

  • Standardize workflow, roles and responsibilities
  • Improve communication between Operators, Contractors and Suppliers through on common interface
  • Enhance the data quality
  • Reduce the time spent on SPIR
  • API’s with EqHub and ERP systems allows for efficient flow of data


The project is in the piloting phase of the MVP for SPIR with users from Emerson, Score and IKM Flux

The project is in the user acceptance testing (UAT) of the MVP for SPIR  to verify that all functional requirements are met



Communication and collaboration between entities in all the whole SPIR process is simplified through one common platform, and enables real time collaboration.

Improved work efficiency

Improved material master data.

Shortened data delivery schedules.

Improved revisioning.

Achieved regulatory compliance.

Mitigated risks.

Saved time and resouces.

The SPIR process

A brief history of the SPIR process

The first SPIRs were handwritten:

Later, Excel sheets were used:

Today, one common platform for SPIR processing, integrating dadta from EqHub and ERP systems is used:

Guides and information


For operators


For suppliers (data providers)


Information material



EqHub serves as a single, controlled, central source of vendor documentation.

What is EqHub?
Access service


When will the service be launched?

The current plan is for the spir service to be launched by Q3 2024.

Will suppliers have to provide spare part information both in EqHub and SPIR?

The goal is to provide one seamless delivery channel for SPIR-related information, and for this data to be ultimately stored in EqHub.

How can we get involved in the intiative?

Reach out and we will get in touch with you.
