Yokogawa announces acquisition of RAP International

November 2019 News

Yokogawa Electric Corporation has announced the signing of an agreement with UK-based RAP International for Yokogawa to acquire all shares of the company and make RAP a wholly-owned subsidiary. RAP specialises in providing digitised solutions that support risk assessment, management of the permit to work (PtW) process, and governance of control of work (CoW) for all plant maintenance activities.

Since 1994, RAP has been developing and implementing software solutions with integrated practices that let customers digitise their CoW processes. RAPnet, its flagship product, is an electronic CoW system for automating maintenance processes that is built around a knowledge base incorporating decades of accumulated first-hand knowledge and experience. The digitised off-the-shelf solution includes standard modules for safety risk assessments, PtW management, management of change, interlocks and overrides, and isolation management. With support for 25 languages, it has been implemented at over 150 locations in 30 countries in the oil, gas, chemical, utilities and steel sectors.
