We provide management of the Integrity Cycle including data review, engineering analysis, inspection, intervention work, etc. We work in association with various small and large engineering companies for input into stability and fatigue life calculations enabling the client to assess risk and make qualified decisions on risk reduction.
Dive Safety Management
Changing attitudes in Diving Operations means that the HSE are placing more emphasis on the role of the Employer during diving operations. Whilst it is commonplace for an Operator to
use suitably qualified individuals to monitor the safety of its diving tasks there is now a demand to demonstrate that there is a comprehensive management system in place. This system should cover all aspects of a diving operation explaining the procurement of the Dive Contractor, including audits of the Dive Contractor’s own management system, reviewing procedures and ensuring that the work comes to a safe and satisfactory conclusion.
If your company is looking to develop an acceptable Management System, PCAL can guide you through the process.
Engineering Software Development
software includes Precis for pipeline and cable
routing. The program allows the user to produce least-cost routing,
minimise bathymetric datasets through import of GIS files and selective
XYZ data import. An initial route may be designed on screen and
then modified dynamically with the mouse; pipeline curves and corridors
automatically update to show the changing route in relation to the
background information. The longitudinal profiles change dynamically
as the route changes and centre line profiles can be exported for
further processing in bottom roughness analysis or to Google Earth
for planning. The package can also be used to assess spans/scouring
and compute rock volumes for existing pipelines.
- Least-cost route planning and post-survey design.
- Geodetic and survey data quality assessment.
- Span assessment and volume calculations.
- Drafting of plans produced from topographical and cadastral
of the datasheet and trial licenses can be found here ...
