ASC Chosen for North Sea Platform

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) of Vancouver, Canada announced the installation of its Autoload onboard stability software on Gjøa, one of the largest projects in the North Sea today. Gjøa's recoverable reserves are approximately 82 million barrels of oil and condensate and roughly 40 billion standard cubic metres of gas. More than 200 km of pipeline are to be laid at Gjøa as well as the cable that is going to supply the platform with power from shore. It will be the first floating platform to get its electricity from the mainland. This will mean a yearly reduction in emissions to the environment of 250,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Autoload is a real time monitoring and simulation tool for planning vessel stability. The program calculates rig stability, including the movement of liquid in slack tanks, and monitors the current VCG compared to the maximum allowable VCG for the current condition with regard to Operation, Survival and Transit criteria.

The Autoload rig version is developed from a proven line of stability software products that have been operating in a diverse range of vessel types for more than 20 years such as Offshore Support, Tanker, Heavy Lift, Bulk, Container, RoRo, Naval, Coast Guard, Survey, Cable, and Cruise Ships. Autoload makes calculations based on a 3D vessel model which means you always get simulation based on real parameters and not from interpolated table-based values. Autoload can input data from any sensor system you choose to operate and can also accept manually entered data at any time. Additionally, daily stability and conditions may be logged with the offic version of Autoload, even for the whole fleet.
