Dutch bolster offshore ties
Vryhof and Deep Sea Mooring set up new engineering unit
Vryhof and its business unit Deep Sea Mooring (DSM) have launched a new engineering unit to support the company’s offshore oil & gas, renewables and aquaculture operations across the globe.
The new unit will provide expert analysis of hydrodynamics and vessel motion, advanced mooring, dynamic positioning, flexible and rigid risers, complex marine operations and probabilistic and deterministic stability for all ship types and floating structures.
It has parallel processing capabilities that will enable 120 simultaneous engineering simulations and forecast response analysis to facilitate the link-up of floating offshore accommodation platforms, Vryhof and DSM said.
Vryhof chief executive Wolfgang Wandl said: “At a time when engineering innovation is so important to operators as a means of increasing efficiencies and managing costs, access to many of the foremost technical and engineering minds in the mooring industry is a definite value-add for our customers.
“The result will be viable engineering solutions and highly accurate information and analysis for real-life challenges.”
