Subsea Installation Engineering (with OrcaFlex) Training CourseSubsea Installation Engineering (with OrcaFlex) aims to provide an overview of subsea installation ranging from basic definitions of hardware and configuration to installation in deep water depths combined with a foundational OrcaFlex software training, aimed at new and/or inexperienced users who can expect to benefit from attendance. This course also outlines the major procedures in the installation of subsea structures, the kind of vessels used for deployment, including lift calculation, crane operation and software demonstration.


Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding of the issues of subsea systems ranging from conceptual design to hardware components.
  • Understanding of subsea installation analysis with the aid of the OrcaFlex software.
  • Knowledge of aspects of design and operations of subsea intervention systems (ROVs, AUVs).
  • An introduction of the OrcaFlex software with simple model designs.
  • Learn how to use the OrcaFlex software to model and mesh risers, Umbilicals, mooring lines, as well as discuss methods for running subsea structure deployment and lift analysis.
  • Under the guidance of a very experienced tutor, become a proficient OrcaFlex user.
