Offshore VesselOffshore Oil and Gas/Seismic Support Services

MSI provides mobilization services for the deployment of seismic geophysical and environmental response equipment on offshore supply vessels. This includes working closely with the client, charter vessel owners, operators, contractors, and regulatory bodies to successfully mobilize equipment in a timely matter. MSI can produce equipment layout drawings, supervise equipment loading and sea fastening, develop procedures for the testing of lifting appliances and load testing of outfitted cranes, winches, or davits.

MSI uses advanced technologies to save our clients time and money when analyzing ship data/requirements.

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics

  • Ship Motion Analysis

  • Structural Analysis including Fatigue and Vibration

  • Propeller Performance Optimization

  • Non-Linear Dynamics Analysis

3D ModelProduction Lofting

Using the same principles of traditional full scale lines fairing in the loft of a shipyard, long ago dubbed "lofting", MSI uses ShipConstructor software to create a full scale 3D model of your project. This model is enhanced and linked to a database in the background that contains each part's information. This information is key to transforming the model into usable shop floor products. Once the model is complete, we have the ability to precisely nest all the steel or aluminum parts and create the NC code that is sent to the cutting bed. We also have the ability to create a detailed set of instructions, needed by the shop floor for fabrication, that are used in tandem with the nested parts arriving from the cutting bed. The final result is a "kit" that allows the builder to reliably transform a stack of plates and profiles into the real product, while saving time and money and allowing the builder to instill confidence and remain competitive in their industry.

Benefits of Production Lofting

  • Produces far more accurate parts and efficient fit-up of parts compared to traditional methods.

  • Eliminates part clashes and enables space allocation for parts and equipment.

  • Reduces delays during construction, re-work, and overall time spent on the vessel.

  • Utilizes ShipConstructor, a fully integrated cross-discipline 3D modeling software.

  • Specialized software complies with industry specific standards and provides build efficiency.

  • Uses associative 2D and 3D drafting, producing an accurate and intelligent project model.

  • Database driven model stores the intelligence, part relationships and information.

  • 3D model allows visualization that helps with planning, client interaction, and design approval.

  • Helps to support and enhance workforce capabilities and reduce risk during company growth.

  • Allows the ability to tackle larger and more complex projects with increased productivity.

3D Model & Part Database

ShipConstructor runs on an AutoCAD foundation and the entire project is linked to a database that runs in the background. This enables accurate modeling of all parts in 3D, whether it be curved shell plated, flat plate, flanged plate, extruded profiles, brackets, piping, outfitting, etc. All necessary geometry such as stiffener cut-outs, weld reliefs, access holes, stiffener mark lines, direction icons, and forming info is included. The database itself contains all the information about each part including stock sizes, part names, weights and centers, plate thickness, material, throws, etc. All together, the model and database combined creates a powerful and efficient tool for producing and managing the smallest or most complex of projects.


Shell Plate & Plate Expansion

Using the surface technology of ShipConstructor, simple or complex curved shapes are created and analyzed for strain then expanded with markings ready for nesting and cutting. Since the curved parts are integral within the model, it makes certain that all internal parts fit exactly with the shell and ensures a quality finished product.


Product Hierarchy

A product breakdown structure is critical to planning and assigns each part within a build sequence that aids the fabricator and designer. This breakdown of spools, panels, assemblies, and units is the key to creating a set of assembly drawings that enhances productivity and turns the shop floor into an assembly line.


Assembly Drawings

Detailed build instructions in the form of assembly drawings display the structure broken down by the product hierarchy and are shown in both isometric and orthographic views. A bill of material is included with annotations and the views are complete with dimensions, reference locations, direction icons, throws, welding information and section details as required by the shop floor.


Plate Nesting & NC Code

To minimize material waste, all plate parts are neatly nested on available plate stock complete with a bill of material and sorted by thickness. All marking information is included and each nest tape can be sent as a dxf file or processed into NC code that can be configured for any type of cutting machine.


Profile Plots/Nests

Profile plots, or cut sketches, contain all the information necessary for pre-fabrication of profiles or extrusions with forming information given as offsets, roll info, or inverse bending lines. To reduce waste, profiles can also be nested on available stock lengths to utilize the raw material to the maximum.


Reports

Custom part reports can be provided by extracting the information from the project database and are useful tools that aid in planning, fabrication, inventory control, part sorting, weight controls, etc.
