3D Visualisation

The 3D visualisation team provide high-end animations using the latest technologies in Computer-Aided Design (CAD).  The team is experienced in converting engineering drawings, documents and photos into 3D modelled geometry and real-life environments that communicate procedures in an easy to understand way. This is particularly helpful if the procedure involves many complex steps or has to be explained to a large number of varying disciplined personnel.

This service can have a positive impact on budgets by saving time and money showing detailed animations of the procedure before it’s executed offshore. It also allows any problems to be rectified and design changes to be implemented at this stage. 3D visualisation has also been invaluable in identifying HSE issues that were not previously considered – helping to ensure that RDS and KCA Deutag continue to carry out work in a safe and reliable way.




​Typical services include:

  • Animated system flow diagrams
  • Rig-up and rig-down procedures
  • Complex equipment animations
  • Bid proposal animations
  • Visualising conceptual designs
  • Animating offshore or onshore removal/installation procedures
  • Marketing and presentation material
  • Engineering review meetings
  • Animations for training purposes

​Typical benefits to utilising animations:

  • Engineering clash checking
  • Assisting other engineering disciplines by identifying any design problems
  • Determining any potential HSE hazards or risks before offshore construction/maintenance work commences
  • Faster way to communicate a package of detailed drawings
