Specialists in Modeling Analysis and Simulation of Dynamic Systems

Agito's expertise lies in the modeling, analysis and simulation of hydraulic, electrical and fluid systems.

Agito’s expertise lies in the modeling, analysis and simulation of hydraulic, electrical and fluid systems. With offices located in Norway; the United Kingdom; Houston, US; and Brazil; we have local representatives that provide quality analysis of critical and complex systems. Our primary goal is to enable our clients to accurately analyse their dynamic systems.

Offshore / subsea simulation

For more than 30 years, Agito engineers have gained extensive knowledge of control systems and dynamic simulation. Our services include simulation projects, third-party reviews and verification.

Subsea simulation software benefits

Historically, numerical modeling and simulation of complex dynamic systems was reserved for a small group of highly specialised engineers. With the advent of state of the art software programmes these tasks are much easier. The software programmes we use and distribute are designed to meet the specific needs of the offshore / subsea industry.

By using simulation software one can test a system virtually before putting it into real life test and production. Various alternative solutions can be tested, and the results will form the basis for choosing the components and dimensions to be used. Simulation software is a supplement that will help engineers to design a better product at a lower cost. In addition, it assists clients in selecting the best product.

Physical system offshore simulation software with subsea-specific libraries

SimulationX® in which Agito is distributor of to the global oil & gas marked, has been developed by ESI ITI in Germany and is the trend-setter in physical system simulation The universal CAE tool for modeling, simulation and analysis of physical effects, SimulationX includes ready-to-use model libraries for 1D mechanics, 3D multibody systems, subsea, power transmission, hydraulics, pneumatics, thermodynamics, electrics, electrical drives, magnetic and controls – post processing included. This software tool is unique in terms of library integration, modeling comfort and flexibility with an up-to-date user front end.

ESI ITI and Agito developed as the first universal CAE tool with a subsea-specific hydraulics and electrical (power & com) libraries, with ready-to-use standard subsea component models in order to tailor SimulationX to become the dynamic software of choice for the offshore and subsea industries.

AFT software products

AFT Software products are developed by Applied Flow Technology, located in the US. AFT products set the standards in piping network flow technology, dynamic solutions for a fluid world. Applied Flow Technology was the first company to introduce pipe flow analysis software with a geographical interface, and is able to analyse fluid systems quickly and easily.

Regional offices and local training

Agito has offices in the major offshore/subsea regions world-wide: Kongsberg, Norway; United Kingdom; Houston, Texas, US; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Training courses that are offered are:

  • General hydraulics
  • Subsea hydraulics
  • Basic simulation
  • Subsea simulation
  • SimulationX software

Simulation of Tensioning Systems with the Belt Drives Library in SimulationX®

Tensioning systems are widely used in offshore operations. Even though the tensioning system consists of simple mechanical components, they are quite complex. This article describes the modeling of a tensioning system developed with the Belt Drives library in combination with the Planar Mechanics library in ITI GmbH's software, SimulationX 3.5.

Brynhild Oil Field

The Brynhild oil field lies in production license 148 in Block 7 of the Norwegian North Sea at a water depth of 80m.

Shah Deniz Stage Two, Caspian Sea

Shah Deniz Stage Two, also known as the Shah Deniz full field development, is one of the world's biggest gas projects and will increase the gas production capacity of the Shah Deniz field by an additional 16 billion cubic metres per annum (bcma) and condensate capacity by a further 120,000 barrels a day.
