Subsea engineering and tooling

Fugro’s engineered solutions meet a vast array of subsea IRM (inspection, repair & maintenance) requirements. Focusing on ROV based solutions, our specialised engineers develop tailor-made equipment and procedures for our dedicated ROV support vessel teams.

We provide specialist expertise in Subsea Engineering, ROV tooling design and bespoke intervention equipment.

To support ROV and vessel operations, our dynamic in-house team covers engineering disciplines including:

  • Project engineering and management
  • Design engineering and drafting
  • Structural engineering
  • Simulation engineering and animation
  • Installation analysis and naval architecture

From vessel mobilisations to intricate remote subsea repairs, our engineering capability allows us to offer a complete project execution service and we specialise in tailor-made engineering solutions to complex subsea problems. Together with extensive offshore experience, our engineering capability enables us to provide innovative engineering solutions that push the boundaries of remote intervention.

Amongst numerous offshore intervention activities, our subsea engineers have successfully completed annual IRM campaigns, planned and un-planned intervention, complex subsea pipeline repairs and diverless FPSO repair and maintenance tasks. This experience has led to the development of a library of standard subsea intervention procedures that enables us to respond rapidly to most subsea problems.

Our engineering solutions include a complete start-to-finish project service including technical support. This ranges from conceptual design and FEED studies, equipment design, manufacture and testing, procedure development, HSE management, specification and sourcing of equipment and liaising with third party companies through to managing the offshore operation and final close out report.

Our wide range of services includes:

  • Tailor-made subsea repair solutions
  • ROV tooling design
  • Structural analysis and design
  • Installation analysis and procedural engineering
  • Offshore execution management and support

We combine traditional engineering calculations, industry leading engineering software products and our proprietary subsea simulation software DeepworksTM to provide comprehensive design solutions. This allows proposed design solutions to be simulated, trialled and demonstrated before any commitment to manufacturing. 

3D models of our designs are imported into the simulation software allowing engineers or ROV pilots to fly and operate the design and highlight any areas for improvement. Utilising this capability early in the design phase allows us to optimise designs and increases confidence in the viability of a proposed solution; this factor is invaluable in securing budgets and management buy-in to proposed projects.

  • Increases confidence in design solution 
  • Optimises design process
  • Supports project proposal buy-in
