Offshore Rig & FPSO Design: Bentley Buys Ultramarine's MOSES Business

Friday, October 04, 2013

Bentley Systems Inc. has acquired the MOSES software business from Ultramarine, Inc. Used around the world, MOSES is the premier analysis and simulation software for complex projects involving the transportation and installation of offshore structures, including the launch of jackets and floatover of topsides.

Featuring functionality covering the full range of stability, motions, and mooring of single or multiple floating bodies, MOSES has become the mainstay for professional engineers to reliably meet stringent offshore code requirements, reduce project risks, and increase safety.

With this newest addition to its portfolio, Bentley says it will further strengthen its leadership in the accelerating offshore energy industry following its acquisition in March 2011 of SACS, flagship software for the structural design of fixed offshore structures. The integration of MOSES and SACS enables unprecedented comprehensiveness in offshore engineering, in particular for the analysis and design of floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) structures.

David Hollister, Bentley CFO, said, “Bentley’s acquisition and mainstreaming of SACS advanced the breadth of capabilities available for the design of offshore infrastructure – for instance, now including wind farms. SACS’ wider adoption and rapid development since becoming a Bentley offering underscores our commitment to the offshore industry."
