Understand how your structure responds in a marine environment
The world’s growing demand for energy continues to push companies further offshore into increasingly challenging waters, such as deepwater or Arctic (very shallow).
Floating exploration and production facilities need motion, mooring and stability analyses to determine safe operating conditions. The structures supporting the drilling and production equipment need accurate prediction of wave loads to determine strength and fatigue capacity, and operators need predictable and reliable performance.
We have an experienced and well-established hydrodynamics team. With a combination of experience gained from projects all over the globe, great theoretical knowledge and continuous learning through such means as joint industry projects, our staff have the background and the latest tools to provide the answers and solutions our clients need.
Our personnel are experienced in both evaluation and modification of existing structures as well as the development and evaluation of new concepts. We help our clients to find and document optimum solutions through advanced analysis, knowledge of rules and regulations, and use of our know-how.
So we can help you whether your floating production system faces increased wave-heights, rising topside weight is causing stability concerns, or you need to deal with other challenges to your marine structure.
