Johan Sverdrup is a platform prepared for work on the Norwegian North Sea shelf, which is one of the largest projects in the oil & gas industry. The gigantic floating structure will be composed of four parts: a residential platform, a drilling platform, a process platform and a connection platform.
The fuel tanks that the oil platform was equipped with were scanned by our company. A point cloud has served our team to create detailed 3D tank models. On the basis of these models, the volumes of individual tanks were calculated, taking into account information about the volume value when the liquid mirror height increased by 10 cm. The measurement technique used was one of the few methods that enabled obtaining the required technical data of facilities in difficult working conditions (lack of lighting, unstable, slippery surfaces) and minimizing the time of obtaining them.
- spatial measurement of 21 fuel tanks made of 116 stands in just 3 days – an unparalleled time with traditional methods;
- the work of the scanner does not stop the work being carried out on the premises of the examined object;
- resistance of equipment to difficult working conditions;
- 3D model enabling detailed analysis and providing data to ensure proper operation of facilities, at the same time minimizing the possibility of any material damage or tragedy;
- detailed volume.
