Morek EngineeringMorek Engineering is a specialist offshore operations and technical service provider. Seafastening involves detailed engineering design to make sure that components are safely secured to the deck of a ship for offshore operations.
 
In this market, loads are becoming larger, heavier and more difficult to handle. There is also much more variety in size and shape – from turbine blades, to monopiles and towers – each of which require a tailored approach. Morek engineering created a software tool that will allow engineers to optimise seafastening designs. One of the key new features in the new tool is the ability to accurately predict project costs, including estimates of labour, materials and mobilisation durations.
 
Morek Engineering was supported by Dr Tessa Gordelier, Business Research Fellow at Marine-i partner, University of Exeter. The project went through four stages of development, using data and information inputs from Morek Engineering. This led to the creation of programming algorithms which were then tested against the existing ‘manual’ approach so that they could validate the new methodology.
