Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering

Our experienced Naval Architects and Marine Engineers are key to our position as a leading provider of structural and marine solutions as-well-as Marine Warranty Surveying (MWS) services for the FPSO and subsea communities. Our teams have a wealth of knowledge to provide a broad range of consultancy in building, maintenance and whole-life services to optimise and perfect your FPSO integrity strategy and seamlessly integrate into your project team.

Intuitive repair specifications, hotwork and coldwork.

We have more than a decades experience and are the leading specialist in developing intuitive on-station repair specifications for the maintenance of FPSOs. We have an unrivalled understanding of the challenges, classification society rules and construction techniques to satisfy typical repairs on ageing structures, and ensure safe and successful solutions are delivered.

Risk based, considering consequence and rate of deterioration.

For more than a decades we have been continuously developing our own unique and one of a kind software known as Pyxis. When we use it in conjunction with our clients it gives us the ability to rigorously assess anomaly data and simply present essential information to asset integrity managers and technical authorities allowing them to make informed decision quickly. We use our extensive knowledge, inspections data and risk-based methods to consider rates of deterioration - feeding into a successful overall integrity management process.

Scoping and guiding work, reviewing and interpreting results.

MTL can add value for an FPSO owner or operator by facilitating detailed analysis including strength and fatigue, hydrodynamic and finite element analysis (FEA). Our teams can offer extensive scoping and guiding work , while reviewing, analysing and interpreting results. We will define work scopes and manage the selection, and supervision, of the best analysis contractors for your project.

Functional specifications, product awareness and limitations.

We bring value to FPSO operations with our knowledge of the application of hull coatings and maintenance, surface preparation assessment and repair. Having worked across a wide range of projects which include a variety of applications we have incredible knowledge of what works and how each element has its limitations, allowing us to predict where failures are likely to occur - and the most appropriate repair methods to compliment the service life of the unit.
