500+ monitoring systems delivered globally
Our structural monitoring and riser analysis experts recognise all the critical aspects involved in implementing subsea structural monitoring systems, and will deliver the most appropriate monitoring solution in order to meet your project needs.
We have designed and implemented over 500 structural monitoring systems for a variety of subsea structures including riser systems, subsea jumpers, flowlines, umbilicals, and wellhead and conductor systems. These have been used to evaluate strength and fatigue performance and calibrate analysis tools and models. The knowledge gained from these monitoring programs has also enabled us to improve our design methods, which has led to considerable cost benefits for our clients.
Effective monitoring of dynamic offshore structures such as risers requires a good understanding of system response in order to capture enough data to enable meaningful interpretation of response, whilst avoiding an excess amount of data. This requires careful selection of the number of instruments and their locations, instrument accuracy and sensitivity, data communication methods, and methods of attachment and installation. Understanding of available field-proven equipment, when bespoke systems are needed, methods to ensure data verification can be conducted and cost effective means of achieving redundancy are also required to ensure design of an efficient system.
Data Processing & Management
2H can process data from our own instrumentation system designs or third party systems. We verify and process data quickly and reliably thanks to a suite of automated tools developed in-house that provide sensor data quality checks, time and frequency domain data processing and fatigue analysis for stand-alone, acoustic and hard-wired systems. State-of-the-art, proprietary algorithms are used to calculate the fatigue damage of riser and subsea systems from both wave and current induced motions.
