LR is contracted by Bluewater Energy Services BV, a designer and operator of Floating Production, Storage, and Offloading units, to provide a comprehensive digital twin and evaluation of an FPSO’s structure, using historical and real-time data of the asset. This will help Bluewater assess Glas Dowr’s operational readiness and redeployment options. LR will do this by delivering a ‘Structural Digital Twin’ model of the Glas Dowr FPSO, using its proprietary cloud-based technology that will determine the FPSO’s global and fatigue hull strength for selected geographical locations through a combination of historical design, operational and measurement data, and real-time in-service performance data.

LR’s digital solution, an integration of a multi-physics models, sensor information and design data of the unit, will be used to mirror and predict the status and life of its corresponding physical twin. This will enhance the operation of Glas Dowr, giving Bluewater the ability to comprehend and predict the structural performance at the new field prior to physical redeployment.

As the digital twin is designed to continuously collect and process sensor data, it presents a constant evolving picture of the FPSO’s status so Bluewater can assess the asset’s health status at all times.

In the first phase, LR will deploy the FPSO Structural Digital Twin using the historical measurement, design and operational data of the unit, in order to run operational scenarios and historical simulations to evaluate the asset’s structural utilisation to train the twin.

In the following phase, LR will run a redeployment assessment based on selected future operational scenarios for envisaged redeployments and assess its feasibility based on a calculated structural integrity assessment.
