Energy and infrastructure solution provider, Saipem, is implementing DNV GL’s hull planned maintenance system based on 3D digital twins of crane and pipelaying vessels.

DNV GL will supply its ShipManager Hull software for implementation on five vessels of the Saipem fleet. ShipManager Hull allows owners to use 3D digital twins for full lifecycle management of the hull structure. All data is centralised and easily accessible for steel and coating calculations and predictive analytics, enabling cost savings, especially in dry-dock.

“With this powerful tool we will be fully in control of the condition of the hull of our construction vessels,” said Giampaolo Bonalumi, asset digital transformation leader at Saipem.

The implementation will begin with the Saipem 7000, a crane vessel with a lifting capability of 14,000 tonnes at 42 meters. Crane vessels are exposed to high stresses during lifting, demanding particular attention to structural integrity. The frequent ballasting of the vessel increases the need for efficient monitoring of ballast tank corrosion and Saipem will be able to use a digital twin for planning of periodic inspections and dry-dock repairs.

The software will also be used for the crane vessel FDS2 (2011) and pipelaying vessels FDS (2000), Constellation (2014) and Castorone (2012).

ShipManager Hull, installed on more than 500 vessels worldwide, is part of DNV GL’s maritime software portfolio for ship management and operations, used on 6500 vessels. ShipManager covers modules for technical management, procurement, hull integrity management, QHSE, crewing and business intelligence.
