Global Maritime’s Event Simulation tool supporting Ocean Winds global project portfolio
Posted by: Global Maritime | Date: October 12, 2022
Global Maritime (GM) are pleased to announce that their OPSIM software has been selected by Ocean Winds to support in the production of complex simulations during early phase project development.
OPSIM is a proprietary software that GM have developed over the last ten years. Originally developed to support the specialist consultancy GM provide; OPSIM is now used widely across the energy sector and has been under increased demand within the offshore wind sector in particular.
Utilising discrete event simulation methodology, OPSIM is able to produce complex simulations that enable users to develop credible Transport & Installation strategies, mitigate risk and optimise their engineering resources accordingly. OPSIM’s playback mode allows for visualisation of the simulation at a variable speed, in order to verify and QA model behavior, allowing for maximum confidence in the final results.
“We are extremely proud of OPSIM and its development journey.” stated Matthew Bernstein, Senior Software Engineering at Global Maritime and creator of OPSIM. “OPSIM versatility addresses the lack of flexibility experienced in other tools. It’s module-based construction also allows the quick and easy customisation of the software to include new features and reporting for specific projects, quickly and easily”.
“OPSIM will play a key role during our early-stage evaluation of projects’ stated Pilar Crespo, Head of Offshore Installation at Ocean Winds. “It will enable us to determine key and fundamental aspects that allow onward development”.
OPSIM is one example of a suite of software solutions developed within GM. Other examples include GMoor, their specialist frequency domain software which provides mooring analysis. GMoor has been utilised across the Energy sector for over a decade and is now being optimised to provide complex analysis into the floating offshore wind sector.
