Service Descriptions

Rig Engineering have been deployed on numerous laser scanning projects all around the world. This can be in the North Sea, Ghana, Norway, Angola or hard to reach locations. Our range of (portable) scanners allows us to hand carry equipment best suited to logistics and job sites anywhere in the world.

Details have been provided below of some of the most interesting scanning projects and how we have harvested the data to give maximum benefit and accurate cost effective solutions to our clients.

Design Process Inside Point Cloud

• Functional layout creation
• Clash free design and installation
• Dimensionally accurate design allows for pre-fabrication of structures and pipework
• Minimal amount of hot work on site
• No on site adjustment of structure
• Expensive and time consuming modelling of existing structure is not required
• Instant visualization

Clash Detection

• Clash check between new structure (3D Models) and existing structure (Point Cloud)
• Clash check between two existing structures (point Clouds) without time consuming 3D modelling
• Dimensionally accurate design allows for pre-fabrication of structures and pipework
• Detailed reports with description of clash and proposed solutions
Clash Check

Reverse Engineering

• Significant reduction of time and cost in comparison to traditional survey methods
• Point Cloud contains detailed information about existing structure geometry including deformation and impairments
• 3D models based on Point Cloud can be modified and used to produce 2D documentation and FEM stress analysis
• Detailed reports with description of clash and proposed solutions

Reverse Engineering

Additional uses for Laser Scan data

• Drawing review against Laser Scan data to report differences from original design and update relevant documentation, i.e. As-Built drawings
• Point Cloud data is archived for future use
• Source of visual information about inaccessible areas (e.g under deck and tanks)
• Access to original imagery of sub-sea equipment (e.g. ROV and BOP)
Additional Uses of Lase Scan Data

Spherical 360° Photographic Records

• Virtual Walk through of clients assets
• Intuitive controls and key plan to easily navigate around assets
• Information sharing and planning activities remotely to reduce cost and avoid delays associated with travelling to assets and multiple surveys
