Vryhof sets in motion new engineering unit

Offshore mooring services provider 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.

Vryhof is a supplier of anchoring and mooring solutions that consists of Deep Sea Mooring, MoorLink, and Vryhof Anchors.

The company said on Monday that the new unit would provide expertise in hydrodynamic and vessel motion analysis, advanced mooring analysis, and dynamic positioning (DP) analysis.

The unit would also analyze flexible and rigid risers, complex marine operations, and probabilistic and deterministic stability analysis for all ship types and floating structures.

Vryhof added that large industry servers would enable the companies to carry out 120 simultaneous engineering simulations, thereby shortening computational times, reduce assumptions and simplifications, and deliver more accurate and less conservative engineering analysis for customers.

Wolfgang Wandl, Vryhof CEO, said: “When engineering innovation means increasing efficiencies and managing costs, access to viable engineering solutions and highly accurate information and analysis for real-life challenges is so important.”

The company said that a key area of innovation at Vryhof and DSM was an availability and response analysis to facilitate the link-up of floating offshore accommodation platforms, known as flotels, to main rigs.

In one North Sea application availability analysis provided by DSM saw the input of hindcast data with over 50 years of historical weather data to estimate the expected availability of the flotel at a specific location. Working with Storm Geo, a provider of decision support for weather sensitive operations, DSM combined hydrodynamic software and weather forecasts to forecast gangway motion, maximize availability, reduce risk, and optimize operations.
