Engineering

Our wealth of experience and knowledge of naval architecture, marine engineering, hydrodynamics and aerodynamics gives us a unique capacity to contribute to improved safety, reliability, performance and economics of all types of offshore renewable energy.

Systems Engineering

BMT analyses complex problems and identifies and assesses the best possible solutions. Our systems engineers systematically capture requirements and propose solutions supported by robust technical assessment, through life costing and investment appraisals.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.

Naval Architecture

BMT has an enviable reputation in naval architecture. Our naval architects take a holistic view of design from initial concept, through feasibility studies, Class level and detailed production drawings as well as in-service support. Our customers can rely on our naval architects and designers to make enhanced performance and reliability their priorities.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.

Marine Engineering

The marine environment puts special demands on equipment. Our marine engineers have specialist skills in mechanical engineering design and analysis, materials, fatigue, corrosion and corrosion prevention, the use of metals and composites in the marine environment, underwater engineering and transmission systems.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.

Wind Tunnel Testing of Offshore Structures

Aerodynamics is an important aspect of the safe and reliable design of an offshore installation. BMT operates large in-house wind tunnel facilities to help designers assess wind loads, current loads and helideck wind environment. Wind tunnel testing can also be used to quickly investigate remedial and mitigating measures should problems be identified.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.

Hydrodynamic Analysis

The prediction of current and wave loading is a key component of offshore engineering design for station keeping, mooring design, vessel stability, structural integrity and safety. BMT’s specialist knowledge and experience in numerical modelling of vessel response and physical model testing provides an unrivalled analysis and consultancy capability.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.

Ice Engineering

Wind and hydrodynamic analysis in cold climates need to be supplemented with an assessment of the effect of ice. BMT has specialist experience in ice engineering and provides a wide range of specialist cold region engineering consultancy.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in Canada.

Power Systems Design

Our capability allows us to define an optimum system architecture for generation, power conversion and grid connection. We specialise in local grid and closed systems where the size of the loads are similar to the size of the generation sources and can include the integration of renewable energy sources. Our designs take best advantage of the load profile and available power sources while accommodating the inherent variability of renewable energy sources.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the US.

Technology Management

Our technology management expertise facilitates the development of technology from concept through to the level of technical maturity required for commercial deployment. We identify the most suitable development activities to mature technologies and systems. Our established toolsets and processes help to de-risk technology development decisions by providing a structured and consistent approach to technology management.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.
