Visualisation

We create more immersive environments that open new ways to see and experience your data.

We use the power of data and visualisation technologies to create more agile, efficient solutions. These insightful tools allow us to improve design and optimise our engineering capability and related business activates at every stage of a project.

Total Savings of $2.4M in design changes realised by incorporating VR into design reviews of a large process plant

Digital engineering

The Challenge

To improve engineering and delivery for a greenfield and brownfield design.

The Solution

​​​​​​​​​​​​We applied augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), to provide better spatial context and understanding to a wider audience of stakeholders during the design process.

The Results

Increased efficiency, faster decision-making and reduced costs
Enhanced, interactive and more comprehensive design reviews
Wider stakeholder engagement
Better overall project visualisation
HAZID/HAZOP storyboarding

Data Integration

We put data to work to help design and build the infrastructure and systems for improved data connectivity.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

We leverage the power of IoT for data capture and management, integrative technologies to help automate work processes and mobile and wearable applications for monitoring real-time operations and workforce collaboration.

Analytics and Artificial Intelligence

Analytics and AI leverage the value of your collected data to identify opportunities that will accelerate your business.

We improve operational efficiency from the process to the supply chain using analytics and AI to automate, predict, prevent and prescribe for optimal performance.

Digital spares warehouse

The Challenge

Optimise spares inventory in the warehouse. After years of high energy prices, operators may be holding up to 50% more spares than required. In some cases, a large operator may now hold up to $3 billion worth of spares.

The Solution

We use data analytics to reduce waste by cleansing inventory data of unsuitable spares and by stocking the correct spares in the required condition.

The Results

Reduced spares inventory by 30%
5000 man-hours saved
$94M savings confirmed to date

Immersive Training

Digital technologies are particularly effective for training. They are more interactive and engaging, and results show that they improve recall.​​​​​​​

Using a combination of immersive visualisation and process simulation, digital training environments the deliver specific operational requirements you need. From on-boarding to training refresh and for standard, non-standard and emergency procedures.

The Challenge

To train the future operators of the Egina FPSO while it is under construction.

The Solution

We delivered a fully interactive virtual training environment for control room staff and field operatives. The environment includes topsides, hull and living quarters in a multi-person, gaming environment where field activities are integrated with simulated process responses.

The Results

Reduced cost and time of on-boarding process for crew members
Increased safety with simulated emergency scenarios
Increased efficiency with virtual run throughs of standard and non-standard activities
Streamlined re-certification process
