Aker Solutions taps PaleBlue for ROV simulator
PaleBlue has delivered a “modern” remotely operated vehicle (ROV) engineering simulator to Norwegian oilfield services provider Aker Solutions.
The simulator will be used to help Aker Solutions simulate the behavior of the subsea robots/ROVs in a controlled environment, performing accessibility checks for the underwater oil and gas installations.
According to PaleBlue, the ROV design product integrates with a wide range of CAD data.
The geometry data is imported right into the editing solution and can be optimized and manipulated in a number of ways. Hierarchy and meta-data are preserved from CAD to enable quick access to structural properties, the company said.
Other features include different ROV models, ROV arm types, distance and measuring tools, as well as TMS and tether controls.
Flexible input methods allow performing ROV access planning from any PC with a few devices connected, such as a gamepad or a joystick, PaleBlue stated.
