DNV GL is also the world-leading provider of software for a safer, smarter and greener future in the energy, process and maritime industries. The company’s solutions support a variety of business-critical activities, including design and engineering, risk assessment, asset integrity and optimisation, QHSE, and ship management. Its worldwide presence facilitates a strong customer focus and efficient sharing of industry best practice and standards.

Holistic risk and QHSE management solution for improved performance

Synergi Life is a comprehensive, operational risk and QHSE management solution. It is currently in use in close to 200 global organisations as well as local companies. Synergi Life provides business units and the company management with all the information they need to be able to prevent unacceptable risks, share lessons they have learned, and manage corrective measures and actions.

The application provides companies with the ability to share and rollup data across complex, muli-layered organisations, allowing them to recognise trends and ensure compliance with requirements. Synergi Life reduces costs by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the operational risk and incident management process.

Synergi Life is a module-based solution designed to meet the demands from both reactive indicators and proactive initiatives. These modules can be used as standalone solutions or in combination of several modules that contribute to a total risk and QHSE management solution.

Complete strength assessment system for engineering of ships and offshore

Sesam covers a structure’s entire lifecycle delivering engineering software support in design, structural re-analysis systems, modifications and repair, input to the operational phase, emergency response and decommission. Using concept technologies in computer aided engineering has proven to be cost-efficient in all the design phases, since the same concept model can be used with different complexities.

Sesam modules:

GeniE is a tool for engineering and strength analysis of ships and offshore structures. Modelling, analysis and results processing are performed in the same graphical user environment which improves both productivity and quality. GeniE is unique in its ability to handle frequent and significant changes in the design process quickly and efficiently.

HydroD is the premier choice for hydrodynamic and stability analyses of ships and offshore structures. It has gained status as the market leader due to renowned efficiency and accuracy, based on decades of experience in the industry. DNV Software has developed HydroD to help naval architects and engineers become more productive, while simultaneously delivering even higher quality analyses.

DeepC is a proven solution for deepwater floating systems, marine operations and SURF (subsea, umbilical, riser, flowline) analysis. It is known in the offshore oil and gas industry for its efficiency, speed and accuracy, with the mooring and riser systems of many recently installed platforms having been designed and/or verified using the software.

Asset integrity management software

DNV GL Digital Solutions offers comprehensive asset integrity software, to manage and track the condition of fixed and floating offshore structures, ship hulls, onshore and offshore pipelines and static process equipment. Our risk dashboard provides an unrivalled overview of your asset during its lifecycle, including documenting risk and the decision-making process, control of integrity plans, and systems that allow managers to ensure that projects deliver as planned. It offers full traceability of integrity management events and decisions.

Offshore structure integrity software

As offshore facilities are operated for decades in extremely hostile and corrosive environments, it is important that structure integrity is monitored, ensuring continuing safety and efficient operability. Sesam Structure Integrity is our software solution for managing integrity and enhancing performance of offshore structures. The 3D model viewer and the unique interface to Sesam for strength assessment ensure fast and cost-effective execution of re-analysis and life-extension projects.

With Sesam Structure Integrity our customers are able to collect and organise information about their assets, particularly the knowledge of asset integrity status. Knowing the integrity of your assets is a prerequisite for safe and secure operations.

Asset condition-monitoring software for the offshore industry

Documenting and tracking risk decisions are essential to companies. Synergi Pipeline uses the risk matrix and best engineering concepts to enforce company policies and uniform conduct of work. The software enables safe and efficient pipeline integrity management, operations, documents risk, and gives a clear overview of the integrity of pipelines, components and tanks.

Synergi Pipeline manages integrity and risk of the entire infrastructure of pipelines and facilities (using RBI), and is equally fit for transport lines, in-field installations, transmission lines and flowlines. Synergi Pipeline is used by customers operating complete oil infrastructures from well to downstream terminal and gas transportation networks, onshore as well as offshore.

Integrity decision makers can manage, track and act based on real-time situation map, risk matrix and risk ranking. Users can easily track hotspots, predict corrosion and plan inspections, maintenance and renewal activities. Synergi Pipeline offers continuous risk documentation with full traceability of integrity decisions.

Integrate risk and reliability analysis into your plant lifecycle

By understanding the risks and production pattern of your process plant or offshore unit, you can make effective decisions to design and operate your asset in the best manner for improved safety and performance.

Consequence and quantitative risk analysis

Phast and Safeti provide a complete, integrated software platform for quantified risk analysis of process plants. It comprises of Phast’s validated consequence modelling of discharge, dispersion and flammable, explosive and toxic effects. Safeti combines these with population, ignition, transportation routes, weather probabilities and an array of vulnerability capabilities. Safeti software package allows the analyst to measure and then manage risks arising from process plant hazards at all stages of a plant’s lifecycle from conceptual design through to decommissioning.

Advanced reliability, availability and maintainability

Reliability, availability and maintainability (RAM) analysis is a crucial tool in designing and analysing the performance of your operations. Maros and Taro are software tools specifically designed to meet the needs of the oil and gas industry. This allows you to model even the most complex process system and to see clearly what is required to improve its performance.

As a general purpose systems design tool it is currently used in a wide range of applications including chemicals, manufacturing, power generation and distribution.

Safeti Offshore and Safeti Onshore

DNV GL Digital Solutions offers a range of powerful software solutions, Safeti Offshore and Safeti Onshore, which have been specifically designed to provide vital assistance during industrial quantitative risk analysis (QRA) operations.
