Enhancing Brownfield modifications Offshore or Onshore

  • Conceptual design utilising laser scanning to verify a concept prior to moving on to detail engineering
  • Detail engineering utilises a mixture of Laser scanning to carry out complete As- Built of areas and verification clash checks carried out between laser scan and proposed 3D design, and utilising Dimensional control service to provide sub mm accurate information of any item offshore true " Tie In " point location and face of flange geometry.
  • Fabrication interfaces, utilise dimensional control service to ensure zero risk through interface management and control service.
  • Installation of equipment using dimensional control to position accurately all new equipment ensuring no clashes and everything fits first time.
