Saipem taps DNV GL for digital twin system

Saipem, the energy and infrastructure solution provider, is implementing DNV GL’s hull planned maintenance system. Saipem will establish a spool-base on Greenwood Island, Pascagoula, Mississippi. Saipem has been awarded new contracts in offshore drilling in Romania. A memorandum of understanding has been signed with Plambeck Emirates LLC for the development and construction. It building the new Saipem on the basis of the traditional business for as long. It will start with Saipem 7000, one of the world’s largest crane vessels with a lifting capability of 14,000 tons at 42 meters. Saipem has been awarded new contracts in offshore drilling in Norway.

Saipem is the only Italian company to have won the Spotlight on New Technology award by OTC. Crane vessels are exposed to high stresses during lifting, demanding particular attention to structural integrity. Saipem and Endress + Hauser Italia started the cooperation for the development. Saipem’s XSIGHT division has been awarded a new onshore-offshore FEED contract for the Ca Voi Xanh. The frequent ballasting of the vessel increases the need for efficient monitoring of ballast tank corrosion. A spool-base is a facility which allows long lengths of pipe to be welded together before reeling them onto a pipelay vessel.

According to one contract, the company will drill a well in Romania’s Black Sea waters. Saipem has signed a memorandum of understanding with Plambeck Emirates LLC, a solutions company. As it is going to last, but at the same time company preparing for new energy demand of the future. One contract was signed with Repsol Norge AS for the drilling of a well for operations in Norway. Offshore Technology Conference, one of the most important international oil & gas industry events. Saipem will be able to use a digital twin of the entire structure for optimal planning of periodic inspections and dry-dock repairs.

Giampaolo Bonalumi, asset dgital transformation leader at Saipem says “With this tool we will be fully in control of the condition of the hull of our construction vessels”.

Saipem is well positioned to capture the growing number of liquified natural gas projects. The works will be executed by the sixth-generation semisubmersible rig Scarabeo 8. OTC will be held from May 6-9 and as every year, it will take place in Houston, Texas. With ShipManager Hull, owners can use 3D digital twins for full lifecycle management of the hull structure. Application of an innovative technical solution to enhance the reliability. Saipem’s XSIGHT division has been awarded a new onshore-offshore FEED contract. All data is centralized and easily accessible for steel and coating calculations.

The Saipem spool-base will be a highly specialized site designed to provide support. It expectedly in the fourth quarter of 2019. The project phases will commence in the coming weeks via Plambeck Saudi. Works will be executed by the semi-submersible rig Scarabeo 9. The partners will use their experience and know-how to carry out an innovative project. There are a limited number of companies able to fulfil gas development contracts and Saipem is one of them. Saipem has been awarded a new three-year contract in the Middle East. ShipManager Hull will also be used for the crane vessel FDS2 and pipelaying vessels FDS, Constellation and Castorone.

The operations are expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2019. The award showcases the latest and most advanced technologies that are leading the industry into the future. The accuracy of gas analysis of the process vents leaving urea plants. The implementation of ShipManager was chosen by Saipem. First initiatives to demonstrate efficiency gains through digitalization and improved data management. The new spool-base will support the Saipem Constellation. A drilling unit suitable for operations in the area. Saipem can start operations after finalisation of the financial agreements at the end of the planning phase.

Ketil Aamnes, VP says “ShipManager Hull is a proven tool in the maritime industry and is growing within the offshore industry”.

The Saipem spool-base is in a dedicated area within the facilities of ST Engineering Halter Marine & Offshore, Inc. The approach is underscored in our recent portfolio transformation. For the project, a vessel operated by Saipem will be utilised. The winning technologies were selected based on five key criteria. Saipem and Endress + Hauser Italia started the cooperation for the development. The project encompasses the design of the facilities for the development of an offshore gas. Saipem is demonstrating the value of the solution for specialized structures such as crane and pipelaying vessels.

The spool-base will be equipped with advanced welding machines. A contract has been awarded for drilling works offshore Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Company believe that the wind market in Saudi Arabia can be supported by innovative solutions. ShipManager Hull, installed on more than 500 vessels worldwide. Leveraging the unique ability of the Saipem Constellation to lift fully loaded reels on-board. Saipem won the Spotlight award for the OIE (Offset Installation Equipment). Saipem and Endress+Hauser, integrating their specialist competences, identified the solution. It is part of DNV GL’s maritime software portfolio for ship management and operations.

The drilling activities will be carried out by the high spec jack up Perro Negro 8. The development of the 500 MW floating offshore wind farm project is part of the new 5 GW. An industry-owned and funded Consortium was set up. The solution allows to have an in-line instrument. The treated gas will be delivered to two power complexes, each containing two power trains. Saipem is a global leader in the realization of fertilizer complexes. Saipem will provide Front End Engineering Design Services for the project that consists of an offshore platform. The spool-base supports Saipem’s growth in the deep water field development sector.

The contract will have a duration of 4 years. The implementation of the project with Saipem, a solid international group, is already technically assured. OIE was developed in response to oil well blowouts in medium-low depths. Urea, readily produced from ammonia and carbon dioxide, is the world’s most commonly used nitrogen. The Ca Voi Xanh development project will provide a competitive and cleaner energy source to Vietnam. Oil Spill Response Limited manages the technologies developed by the Consortium, including the OIE. ShipManager covers modules for technical management, procurement, hull integrity management, QHSE.
