Expertise. Intuition. Ingenuity.
Using the ship as a tool
A core understanding of not only the nature and physics of the marine environment but also dynamics of conducting marine operations within it.
Hydrodynamic analysis to characterise ocean dynamics
Hydrostatic analysis of standard and novel offshore structures
Marine systems design in OrcaFlex, including moorings and marine operations
A comprehensive approach
Understanding the application of load and flow of stress and strain through the objects we design allows us to develop efficient structures for the job at hand.
Clear understanding of load path led design
FEA applied with verification to assess structural performance
ULS, ALS and FLS methods as per class requirements
Marine operation simulation
Quantifying offshore risk
Using engineering analysis to simulate offshore methods/processes to quantify and manage the risk of operating in the worlds most energetic sea areas.
Extensive experience simulating a wide range of marine operations with Orcaflex
Wide range of metocean analysis tools
Specific experience of recording, processing and forecasting energtic tidal currents
Versatile application of practical engineering skill sets
We offer the following commonly requested core project engineering services:
Lift planning, dynamic offshore lift analysis, design of bespoke lifting tooling
Mooring design and specification of layouts
Risk reduction processes – HIRA, HAZID, HAZOP, FMEA
Cradle to grave service for project seafastening
Deck layout and documentation
Converting experience to speed of delivery
Fast turnaround of high quality, mobilisation ready detailed designs
Provision of class approval documentation
Marine warranty survey documentation packs
On site quality records and as built documentation
Full engineering reporting from basis of design to detailed design and strength summary
Onsite expertise to drive mobilisation
We have found in the past the best way to ensure efficient mobilisation and achieve required as built specifications is to provide a site presence from the seafastening design team. This direct technical stewardship hugely reduces the risk of costly delays in port.
