Global laboratory testing, inspection and certification services firm Bureau Veritas (BV) said today it had “supercharged” its Optimise software to help offshore operators and contractors get more out of their assets and develop projects more cost-effectively.
Matthieu de Tugny, senior vice-president and head of offshore, BV, said: “Low and falling energy prices focus attention onto the reliability, availability and maintenance (RAM) of both existing assets and plant and ongoing developments.
“A powerful RAM software tool like Optimise saves time and money for asset owners and contractors by identifying bottlenecks in process and supply lines, by modelling potential failures and their consequences and with our new Optimise V3 by underpinning clear operational and strategic decision- making.”
He added: “BV has huge experience with RAM studies for FPSOs (floating production, storage and offloading vessels), subsea installations and process plant types.
“We have special and unique experience with FLNGs (floating liquefied natural gas projects) over the last three years.
“We have committed substantial resources to bring that all together into one supercharged revision of Optimise which is easy to use, quick and customisable.
“We can provide training with the licence, so that operators, asset owners and contractors can get full value out of this powerful RAM modelling tool. It will show them how to save money and save downtime, the key issues in today’s market.”
