3D Space Management

In connection with the installation of a 450 ton compressor deck on the Siri platform, much focus was put on space management.

Lodahl contributed throughout the cycle of the project with continuous dimension control, marketing of holes, checks to subcontractors, etc.

The assembled compressor deck  was scanned onshore, and the hole in which the deck was to be installed was scanned on the Siri platform in order to check compatibility.

Detailed modeling of the critical areas on the platform were made, and then it became a simple “volume model” of the compressor cover (red model). This was successfully simulated in place on the platform model.

During this simulation two minor incompatibilities were found: a cable tray and a valve.
