Design Cycle

The Offshore Energy design cycle closely considers all aspects of the requirements at each and every step of your project:

  • Intended purpose and performance
  • Cost and schedule constraints
  • Design life
  • Operating environment
  • Input loads
  • Vessel interface
  • Material selection
  • Package deployments:
    • Dynamic amplification factor (DAF)
    • Splash zone transparency
    • On-bottom weight limitation
    • On-bottom stability
    • Operating depth
    • Remote intervention requirements
    • Recovery / de-ommissioning
  • Critical, high stress or high fatigue components
  • Failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA / FMECA)
  • Control system design
  • Electro and electro-mechanical / hydraulic system design
  • Power interface and requirements
  • IP rating
  • Foundations / sea fastenings
  • Access, fire and lightning considerations
  • Paint systems and / or cathodic protection
  • In-service inspection plans

Examples of the equipment and systems we have provided are:

  • CNC / PLC / SCADA precision controlled equipment
  • Cable baskets
  • Deck grillages
  • Package deployment systems
  • J-tube and riser systems
  • Modular handling systems
  • Launch and recovery systems
  • High-power subsea trenching vehicles
  • Product lay systems
  • Sea-fastenings and vessel interfaces
