Independent project services consultancy, Cambla, has announced the launch of its state of the art technology software, the Schedule Animation Tool (S.A.T), a first of its kind for the oil and gas industry.
The company will unveil its ground-breaking technology during Subsea Expo which will take place between 11-13 February 2015 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
The multi-user software has been developed to meet the needs of businesses operating within the subsea sector, significantly reducing man-hours and offering substantial cost savings.
S.A.T provides an accurate visual representation of a vessel’s actual location and planned activities, making it easier to understand Simultaneous Operations (SIMOPs), construction sequences and plan global subsea and marine operations.
Transforming the way that vessel schedules are analysed before, during and after performing subsea operations, the software is capable of identifying occasions when vessels are required to be in close proximity to other vessels or installations. In addition, it can generate a list of relevant SIMOPs or Close Approach Risk Assessments required to be carried out in advance.
Alexander MacLeod, Owner and Project Services Manager at Cambla, said: “This is a monumental step for Cambla and a game changer for the entire industry. The team has been dedicated to producing an innovative product that will benefit the oil and gas sector.”
S.A.T represents the innovative, forward-thinking approach that Cambla takes with regard to engagement with its customers, the tool is an effective way of building consensus within the client’s project team, ensuring everyone is aligned to the same plan.
Mr MacLeod continues: “The introduction of our new tool is set to change the way that vessels are viewed and project teams plan their subsea operations. S.A.T will provide them with a time saving tool that will not only improve the accuracy and efficiency of future subsea and marine planning operations, but also significantly save costs.
“The launch of our new software is a great start to our year, broadening our service and capabilities on an international level within the oil and gas industry. Demand for our services is expected to increase and we are looking forward to the opportunities that S.A.T will present us with in the future.”
Having achieved a successful first year of business, and established an excellent reputation for its project services offerings internationally, Cambla has plans for significant growth with S.A.T, providing subsea companies with a highly appealing technological advancement, presenting Cambla the opportunity to continue to increase its international reach in 2015 and beyond.
Cambla will be exhibiting at Subsea Expo at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) between the 11-13 February 2015 on stand 4.
