Design and verification

By building insight into the design we address problems before they happen and help support end products that will be reliable, safe and perform to expectation in all circumstances.


Helideck operations and design guidance

Helicopter operations to and from offshore platforms can involve significant risk and cost, so it is important that helidecks are designed for optimal performance and minimal risk.

We help our customers accurately measure and model weather conditions during helicopter landing and take-off operations to optimise design and improve safety. Our studies also support the optimisation of helicopter landings in adverse weather conditions and any turbulence created by the layout of the topside. We are recognised authorities on offshore helideck aerodynamics and use our world-class wind tunnel facilities and state-of-the-art computational modelling resources to provide designers and operators with clear and insightful assessments of proposed helideck designs.

Vessel simulation studies for offloading operations

Built on many years of experience in all aspects of vessel manoeuvrability, BMT REMBRANDT supports a range of navigation and manoeuvrability studies for offshore and terminal operations.

Vessel and mooring selection

Preliminary vessel and mooring selection for marine terminals is an essential part of early project concept selection and planning to better understand the options available for near shore and field offshore locations. 

BMT have a broad range of experience in this area in evaluating offshore floating production system, ship-to-ship and ship-to-structure operations.  Our comprehensive consultancy services range from providing expert advice, to detailed dynamic analysis using specialist software.

Ship collision analysis

Our powerful software tools and offshore engineering knowledge means we can help you model and analyse ship collisions effectively. 

Our in-house vessel simulation software tool REMBRANDT supports in-depth collision analysis and helps you to identify and address problems early in the design stage, reducing cost and risk further down the line.

Pipeline design

Our expertise in materials engineering and understanding of their lifetime performance and maintenance, means we are strongly positioned to assist in optimisation of your pipeline design.

Our experienced engineers also support design solutions for pipeline modification and maintenance activities including line-lowering operations, in-service damage, and welding operations.

Flow assurance modelling

As offshore production ventures into more remote and deeper waters, untreated formation fluids travel longer distances through pipelines, valves and pumping devices before reaching process equipment.

Our powerful modelling capabilities help customers ensure the reliable, continuous and simultaneous transport of liquid crude oil, gas, water and sand from the formation to the processing facilities.
