Structural Integrity

Optimising the Integrity of your Structures

Enormous waves, freezing temperatures, storms–this is the environment many offshore units shall withstand, and at the same time, be a production facility and a workplace for, in some cases, hundreds of people. Asset structural integrity is the foundation for safe work in this environment.

We understand the complexities involved in monitoring the integrity of your offshore units. Managing structural integrity is assessing the unit’s structural design, analyses, fabrication quality, technical documentation, and the inspection processes, to detect the structure’s weak spots and perform compensating measures.

Our goal is to consistently balance our efforts between practical efforts in the field and structural integrity assessments in the office to get the most out of the program. With our strong theoretical background and extensive field experience and expertise, we use the collected data available to assess the actual condition of your structures.

We develop lean structural integrity engineering tailored to your needs:

  • We define performance standards and inspection strategies
  • We design and modify long-term inspection programs
  • We evaluate inspection findings, perform root cause analysis, and suggest repairs and modifications 
  • We organize and assess the inspection, repair, and modification history, and determine the current structural integrity
  • We quantify uncertainties of both the structural analyses, the inspection quality, and the detailed design
  • We perform structural reliability analyses, fatigue assessments and structural monitoring analyses
  • We handle structural certification and ensure regulatory compliance’
  • We perform lifetime extension studies
