Nephos

We are empowering end-users to carry out highly complex but standardised offshore engineering analyses, from their web browsers.

NEPHOS JACK-UP

The first tool in the Nephos family was Nephos Jack-Up. A revolutionary solution to carry out Site Specific Assessments of jack-up vessels, in full compliance with applicable ISO and SNAME codes, from a simple web browser interface.

Nephos Jack-Up is a unique solution for SSAs:
It is by far, the fastest solver in the world, carrying out a 3 hour time-domain FEA assessment in less than 30 minutes.
It is also the only commercially available solution with fully coupled structural and geotechnical analyses, enabling iterative preload optimisation to be carried out as standard.

RENEWABLES

For jack-up heavy lift vessels involved in the installation of offshore wind turbines, Nephos Jack-Up offers unrivalled performance and standardisation. We work closely with our clients, from tender stage through to project planning and during the campaign, to ensure the all-important jack-up operations are carried out safely, with optimal utilisation of preloading time and reduced spudcan penetrations.

Nephos Jack-Up enables:

  • Unprecedented certainty during tender stages, leading to more competitive tendering.
  • Fast and cost-effective consultancy engineering during the preparation of the campaign.
  • Site specific assessment for each turbine location, eliminating the uncertainty associated with zonations.
  • Close support during the campaign, with the ability to quickly revise unplanned circumstances.
  • Vessel-specific LPA calibration, based on jacking logs.

OIL & GAS

In a challenging environment for offshore drillers, Nephos Jack-Up provides an innovative solution to the problem of location approval.

Our analyses utilise full FEA simulations as standard, enabling us to better predict and demonstrate the behaviour of your vessel on site. We can help you to maximise the operational envelope of your vessels, which can make the difference between qualifying for a tender, or not.

Due to the unprecedented efficiency and standardisation of Nephos Jac-Up, our studies no only meet the highest standards required for Site Specific Assessments, but we also charge a fraction of what our competitors do.

JACK-UP ENGINEERING CONSULTANCY

The team behind the development of Nephos Jack-Up includes some of the most reputed structural and geotechnical engineers in the industry. Most have held key jack-up engineering management roles in large offshore engineering consultancy firms.

This wealth of expertise, combined with the unprecedented computing power of Nephos Jack-Up, is at your disposal for a wide variety of jack-up engineering consultancy services that are not possible to standardise.

Challenges we can help with include for example:

  • Jack-up vessel design – concept and feasibility through to class approval.
  • Detailed design of jacking-critical components
  • Retrofits, upgrades and life extension
  • Seismic assessments
  • Leg extraction study
  • Dry and wet tow analyses
  • Operational nomogram, and operating manual updates
