Innovative technology, offshore opportunities, and unconventional hydrocarbons are causing fundamental shifts in the global energy system.  As energy needs rise globally, we work with major energy companies, natural resource developers, financial institutions, governments, and agencies to find sustainable and cost-effective solutions.

  • Advice on complex offshore or coastal transactions, including regulatory compliance
  • Commissioning, maintenance or decommissioning of energy projects
  • Protection and monitoring of coastal and offshore assets

We have been involved with the offshore renewables sector from the outset, with our involvement reaching back to early work on wind and wave energy devices in the 1980s. Involvement has included elements so diverse as weather forecasting and prediction of scrub to maintenance program creation and from vessel design to accident investigation.

We embrace the innovation and regulation that form the primary business drivers in the energy and natural resources sector.

Offshore construction

From vessel simulations to training crew and assessing environmental risks, we help you during the planning stage of any significant development and scheduled offshore construction.

  • Proprietary software
  • Hydrodynamic modelling expertise
  • Knowledge of the regulatory weather
  • Downtime and environmental risks

We provide vessel simulations for complex installation programmes that combine our extensive naval architecture and offshore engineering experience with our hydraulic modelling expertise and met ocean capabilities.

Environmental and project risk

Unmanaged risks can be extremely costly in terms of the operating time of a facility, business bottom line and even human and community life. We apply proven techniques to manage risk in the early phases of your project lifecycle, where the knock-on effects can result in severe consequences.

Our comprehensive understanding informs assessments of all relevant environmental regulations, directives, and international agreements. Whether identifying and mitigating potential ecological risks or meeting the needs of regulators and licencing authorities, we have the knowledge and experience to support your projects during construction and installation.

Using powerful in-house Risk Assessment Method (RAM) software, we help estimate project life cycles and costs by considering environmental conditions that may affect offshore installations before any capital investment is made. We help you understand the possibility of maintaining an asset and help you take full advantage of design, maintenance, and availability opportunities.
