They are now identifying the top 1-2 utility solutions for idle platforms based on economic, political, social, technological and environmental factors.

Now we need 1 student to join the team for the third phase of the project. In the last phase, the students will develop a profitability analysis on the best solutions and make a final report with recommendations for Equinor, including cost estimates, a value proposition canvas and a business model canvas.
