Subsea 7 to install OCTOPUS

Subsea 7 has ordered the OCTOPUS motion monitoring and ship response forecast system from Amarcon for the recently delivered Pipelay/Heavy Lift vessel Seven Borealis.

In addition to the onboard motion monitoring and forecast functionality, the Seven Borealis shall also be equipped with DP Capability Forecast, to enable the production of DP (Dynamic Positioning) plots based on forecast thruster utilisation.

This tool provides a forecast, displayed within the OCTOPUS-Onboard software, showing how the vessel will be able to maintain its position and heading in changing environmental and weather conditions, hours and days ahead.

By using the OCTOPUS-Online service all the collected motions and accelerations from the Seven Borealis will be sent to a central database server, allowing authorised users at the Subsea 7 office to view and analyze the recorded motion and acceleration data.

Subsea 7 has also ordered Amarcon’s hydrodynamic analysis software OCTOPUS-Office, for calculation of sea keeping characteristics for the Seven Borealis prior to new pipe lay projects.
