Digital transformation

Digital Business Transformation is not only about technology, it is also about organisational agility. Digital Transformation is a strategic enabler for Stena Drilling. With an agile ‘customer first’ approach, we have established a competence stack that empowers digital innovation.

“By adopting agile transformation the business rapidly engaged teams to meet business goals as they emerge. Recent fleet upgrades have enabled us to leverage the power of data, which in turn is swiftly transforming how we work.” - Colin Dawson - Digitalisation & Business Transformation Manager.

Digital technology will have a significant impact not only on how rigs of the future will be designed but also how the rigs will be managed and how personnel will interface with technology.  We have established a Business Transformation function which is focused on driving incremental innovation through the application of digital technology.


To be a sustainable company we must look at the financial, social and environmental aspects of the organisation.


We believe in the Stena way, and act within our values, showing respect for the environment and communities.
