Mooring Integrity Management
Your Mooring Integrity Partner
VMi delivers quality Engineering Services to the Oil & Gas and Floating Wind industries, throughout the Mooring Integrity Management (MIM) lifecycle, i.e. from Design, Construction, Installation, in-service Inspection and fitness-for-service or life extension assessments.
Management of ageing mooring systems becomes of the greatest importance when assets approach the end of their design life. Degradation of certain parts of the mooring system may exceed the original design parameters and it is important to assess the condition of mooring systems to understand the risk of mooring failure.
We use state-of-the art inspection, lab testing, full-scale testing and software programs to carry out comprehensive engineering studies to deliver expert appraisals. With this information, our customers can take appropriate decisions regarding life completion, life extension, or the need for intervention.
Typical activities include:
- Risk Analysis.
- Numerical Modelling of Floater and Moorings.
- Inspection Planning.
- Offshore Inspection Programs.
- Ashore Inspection and Testing programs.
- Structural Analysis.
- Failure Analysis.
- Criticality Assessment.
- Remaining Fatigue Life and Strength Assessments.
