Our Engineering Department uses specialized software packages (some of them displayed here) to design, evaluate, verify and confirm.
Basic Design for marine & offshore systems
We provide methods and analysis for marine /offshore engineering and modifications of jack-ups, semi-submersibles, barges, heavy lifting vessels, diving/ROV, anchored vessels, process facilities and more.
Structural resistance (including catenaries)
Structural engineering depends upon a detailed knowledge of loads, physics and materials to understand and predict how structures support and resist self-weight and imposed loads. To apply the knowledge successfully structural engineers will need a detailed knowledge of mathematics and of relevant empirical and theoretical design codes.
Fluid dynamics has a wide range of applications, including calculating forces and moments on a moving body, determining the mass flow rate of petroleum through pipelines and offers a systematic structure—which underlies these practical disciplines—that embraces empirical and semi-empirical laws derived from flow measurement and used to solve practical problems.
SURF capability verification
Subsea, Umbilicals, Raisers and Flowlines are sensitive assets with high implication on the transfer of offshore production to the shore. With proven tools like Ansys, Orcaflex and others or in-house application we can design, verify, optimise or upgrade any SURF project.
Extreme weather effects
As the world has warmed, that warming has triggered many other changes to the Earth’s climate. Changes in extreme weather and climate events, such as heat waves and droughts, are the primary way that most people experience climate change.
Transport and Installation loads assessment
Before in-place conditions where all item are designed to undertake lifetime loads are transient design situation where the loads could by considerably higher. Verification of temporary stages makes the difference between a standard and diminished lifetime.
Fatigue is defined as the subjective complain of tiredness or diminished energy level to the point of interfering with normal or usual activities.
Naval architecture studies
Naval architecture involves basic and applied research, design, development, design evaluation (classification) and calculations during all stages of the life of a marine vehicle. Preliminary design of the vessel, its detailed design, construction, trials, operation and maintenance, launching and dry-docking are the main activities involved.
Technical & Detail Design
The conceptual engineering project phase serves to identify the technical and economic feasibility of the project, and how we can set the course for the development of basic and detailed engineering.
Fabrication technology and production information
Marine fabrication has a thought nut to crack in respecting the schedule of construction. With innovative and optimised methods considering the added value from virtual environments schedule optimisation of up to 17% could be obtained.
Assembly sequence and functional manuals
Complexity of marine structures could pose the challenge of mounting into difficult environments (desert, polar, deep-sea), or within a tight schedule. We offer the knowhow of a team of professional experienced in implementing multi-billion projects into the harshest environments.
Project Feasibility (Technical, Financial, Operational, etc.)
A feasibility study aims to objectively and rationally uncover the strengths and weaknesses of an existing business or proposed venture, opportunities and threats present in the natural environment, the resources required to carry through, and ultimately the prospects for success. In its simplest terms, the two criteria to judge feasibility are cost required and value to be attained.
