The assessment and management of offshore structures benefits considerably from monitoring information. Data on the actual specific system response carries all the necessary information for structural health management.
The basic services offered are:
> Determination of the ultimate load capacity
> Quantification of the fatigue status and the
remaining fatigue life
> A condition-based inspection plan saving
money on visual inspections
> Quantification of life consumed and justification for the extension of life
Usage monitoring provids information on the load history and the events experienced by an offshore asset during its lifetime, formating the basic data set for data-driven asset management procedures.
